A refreshing, contemporary telling of the classic story. Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affects everyone around her - even, eventually, the cold Marilla! We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert. This play has been charming audiences around the world.

The story of a poor, but imaginative young boy and his mother, who are visited one night by three Kings on their way to Bethlehem to give gifts of frankincense, myrrh and gold to the newborn King. They ask to stay the night. The mother, having nothing to give them to eat, sends Amahl out to call the shepherds and shepherdesses to bring food, gifts and the entertainment of dance. After the excitement, the mother, Amahl and the Kings settle down for the night. But, the mother is tempted by the gold and reaches for it, only to be attacked by the Page. When Amahl sees this, he attacks the attacker. All is well when both the mother and Amahl want to know more about this King the Kings seek. Amahl wants desperately to send a gift to this King and offers his most important possession - his crutch. When he does that, he finds himself able to walk. “...I walk Mother, I walk Mother.”
