In this Points of View, NAC English Theatre Artistic Director Jillian Keiley hosts a discussion with two special guests, Anne & Gilbert Co-Composer and Lyricist Nancy White and Campbell Webster, Original Producer of Anne & Gilbert, about the evolution of this Canadian musical and the enduring appeal of Anne Shirley of Avonlea.

A grown-up Anne of Green Gables is in love - and so are we. On idyllic Prince Edward Island, Anne Shirley is now an ambitious young woman about to begin her first teaching job. Romantic complications abound when childhood sweetheart Gilbert Blythe proposes marriage – but he's not her only suitor. Can Anne find true happiness? East Coast Music Award-winning songs and classic, well-loved characters make this sophisticated made-in-Canada musical perfect for our national stage this holiday season!

"Sure to become a classic."

-The Ottawa Citizen

"Delightful... utterly charming."
