Life isn't easy for Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan with a vast imagination and a short temper. In a twist of fate, she gets taken into the Cuthbert house in Avonlea. The elderly occupants Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert were looking for a young boy to help in the fields, but they're in for quite a shock when they realize Anne is a girl.

Adapted from the acclaimed classic by L. M. Montgomery, Akage no Anne portrays Anne's upbringing from 11 to 17 years of age and her encounters and separations with various people. Only time will tell what major decision Anne has to make that will change her life forever.

This show is about understanding what selfless and selfish means and how precious time is. Knowing every second you're living in while living the best moment is the most valuable moment that is the most valuable thing you can have instead of materialism. The pacing i though was a bit repetitive but as soon as i realize at the end. It simulate the time of we would feel when we are going through the motion of enjoyment where as if the boring thing of life that is an hour long feel like 10 hours but the precious moment that you're going through the whole day ...

In this production, the development of characters matters more, seeing them grow gives pure satisfaction and you will feel comfortable with at least some of the experiences of ...
