“Anne of Green Gables,” the story of an orphan girl adopted by an aging brother and sister on idyllic Prince Edward Island, has been charming readers since it was first published in 1908. The book has sold more than 50 million copies, and has been adapted several times for film, television, and the stage. This musical version of the story now at Wheelock Family Theatre is the one that has been performed in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island every summer since 1965, and while the story may be timeless, this musical feels dated.
