The Music of Avonlea

Where to start? There is barely a quiet moment in the show; even when there is dialog, the music is setting the tone. It is suspenseful when Anne is getting into trouble, and joyful when she is happy. The piano is like her friend she brings along where ever she goes, setting music to her … Continued

Changing—and Changed by—Avonlea

Do we mold our characters to ourselves? Or do we mold ourselves to our characters? In ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, we have done both. It has been fascinating to watch my castmates add aspects of their personalities to their characters and even more fun to watch their characters influence their personalities. Natalie Clark is a … Continued

Kindred Spirits

Hi! My name is Margot Molidor, and I am a senior in high school. I play Diana Barry, Anne’s bosom friend and kindred spirit, in QCT’s production of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. As Anne’s bosom friend (Anne likes big words, but bosom really just means best), I’d like to think I understand how important friendship … Continued

Everything’s Coming Up Anne

One of the fantastic things about telling the story of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is that everyone knows and loves the tale of the imaginative, red-headed orphan. Just like the townspeople in Avonlea, we find Anne enchanting. I grew up reading the ANNE OF GREEN GABLES books and watching the movies, just like so many others. … Continued

One Adult’s Perspective: Why Being in a Student Theatre Show is Awesome

Adults, when you hear “Student Theatre,” what comes to mind? I’m going to make an assumption right now that, for most of you, student theatre belongs to your “yesterday.” You remember the “good old days” onstage with Connie, or Brandon, or Dominic, or any number of student directors and leave it at that. And for … Continued


This year’s Triple Threat Boot Camp (TTBC) was truly an amazing sight. Nearly 80 students gathered on our stage, each and every one of them as talented and as passionate about theatre as the next. We spoke to four different students over the week about the camp and why, after 10 years, TTBC is still … Continued

Capturing the Essence

“It was a dark and stormy night. In her attic bedroom Margaret Murry, wrapped in an old patchwork quilt, sat on the foot of the bed and watched the trees tossing in the frenzied lashing of the wind.” In two sentences Madeleine L’Engle snares us. Over fifty years after A Wrinkle in Time was written, … Continued
