The first performance of the newly established Silver Cliff Theater Company will be Jan. 24 and 25. They will be performing the famous book that had been written as a play ‘Anne of Green Gables. ‘

Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote the bestselling book, published in 1908. It is a fictional book for readers of all ages, but was mostly recognized as a children’s book. There have been numerous adaptations of the book, which has included movies on both the silver screen and television and was also adapted as a play.

An interesting fact about the book is that there has been more copies sold than ‘Gone with the Wind’, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.’

For the Silver Cliff Theater Company they have been busy preparing for the big night, having several practices throughout the past few months. The cast is made up of local members of the community with Randy Hills directing. There is hope that there will be more performances to come from a variety of plays in the near future. For now though, there is an eagerness from cast members to perform for the community.

The first performance will be Jan. 24, 7 p.m. at NCHS auditorium, with an encore on Jan. 25 at 2 p.m. For advanced tickets contact Heather Goddard at (307) 349-5050 or (307) 334-2500 or tickets can be purchased at the Lusk State Bank.
