Guess What?

Guess which musical our homeschool group is performing this year!

Go ahead...guess!  

There's only one minute left in my brain....

It's Anne of Green Gables!  The musical!

Some of you already know this, but I played Anne in our college production of AoGG (the play, not the musical).  You can imagine how excited I am to be involved in this story again!  

There are actually several versions of AoGG, the musical.  (Who knew?!)  Our director has whittled it down to four different scripts.  The director, the assistant director, and I will meet next week to try to make our final selection.  (I'm the vocal director, so Cheryl wants my opinion on the score for each script.)  

I've spent a good portion of the day reading scripts and listening to songs.  While I was reading, I laughed out loud in many spots--especially as I remembered Sue's Mrs. Blewitt and Jodi's Mrs. Lynde from our college days.  I also cried when Matthew died.  My dad was a quiet guy, much like Matthew Cuthbert.  Made me miss him.  He was so proud of me for being in that play.  When I came home for summer break, Dad organized a "showing" of the video at my home church .  I was a little embarrassed, but I loved him for it.   


  1. Cool!!! That's gonna be so much fun!

  2. I am so excited, I can hardly stand it! :) (There isn't any chance that you still have pictures/video of you as Anne, is there? ;) )

  3. LOL...There might be some pictures in the yearbook, and I do have an old VHS of it. It's pretty poor quality--if it still works, that is.

  4. Update: We met yesterday, but we didn't quite pick a script. Well, we eliminated script #3, but we need more music samples of script #4 before we feel ready to make a definite choice. We did manage to set some dates, though.

    Auditions will be on October 10th, and we'll pass out scripts and do a read-through (no music) on November 7th. We'll go through the entire score on the 14th. Then, two weeks off to learn lines and celebrate Thanksgiving, and we start in earnest on December 5th. This is the *plan*, anyway. ; )
