"Anne of Green Gables": A One-Act Musical Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's Novel. Cue Sheet for Teachers.
This performance guide is designed for teachers to use with students before and after a performance of the one-act musical based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel, "Anne of Green Gables," with music by Richard DeRosa and book and lyrics by Greg Gunning. The guide is designed to help teachers foster students' appreciation of theatre, dance, and music. The activities involve students in high-level thinking skills, accommodate differing learning styles, and draw connections to various parts of the curriculum. The guide, called a "Cuesheet," offers five activity pages for students. Materials for teachers address using the reproducible student activity pages and offers background information on author Lucy Maud Montgomery, Prince Edward Island (where the story takes place), on theatre conventions, adapting the novel into a musical play, and on audience collaboration. They also list resources about Lucy Maud Montgomery. Students' reproducible activity pages include a story synopsis, a look at the characters in the play and how actors double roles, lines from the play and character insights, items from the Victorian era, and the role of imagination in the theatre and in the character Anne.
