When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of kindred spirits.
Suitable for audience of all ages.

Time-Lapse Shows Production Process
What goes into a staging a Curtain Players production?
Stephen Moore, former production manager with the community theatre, longtime volunteer, and lighting designer for The Diary of Anne Frank, creatively answered the question using his talents as a photographer.
The community theatre company presented The Diary of Anne Frank at the Harlem Road playhouse October 21-November 6, but director Marla Williams and her creative team began working at the beginning of the year. The actors were cast in August and soon began rehearsals, followed by work days to construct the set, the performances, and strike, when all was put away.
Using more than 12,000 photographs, Moore created a series of time lapse videos showing the process of producing The Diary of Anne Frank at Curtain Players. All cast, crew, and contributors are volunteers with the organization.
