Anne of Green Gables
Directed by Amber Langhennig
November 3-5, 10-12, 17-19, 2017
Book by L. M. Montgomery
Play by Sylvia Ashby (Lubbock playwright)
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 affect 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.
“Anne of Green Gables suits community theatre with a varied cast, simple set, and characters familiar to all of us. This version of the novel is concise yet detailed, humorous and bittersweet.”

Cinderella -or- Prince Charming Gets the Boot: A West Texas Panto
Directed by Adam Day Howard
Nov 30 – Dec 3, Dec 7-10 2017
Written by Adam Day Howard
Cinderella -or- Prince Charming Gets the Boot: A West Texas Panto is a ‘panto’, short for ‘pantomime’ which is not a silent show of mime-style acting, but rather a loud, whimsical, exceptionally fun free-for-all based on a popular family-friendly fairytale–in our case, Cinderella—full of contemporary songs, physical comedy, and audience participation. Its tradition is primarily British, but ours is written specifically for our audience in Lubbock. Filled with Lubbock-isms such as a King named King Kliffsbury, our brand new Lubbock panto is sure to have any Lubbockite of any age, giggling.
Furthermore, this production is especially exciting because it’s currently garnering national attention. The playwright and director of our show, Adam Day Howard, recently had the honor of publishing an article entitled “PANTO: Could Britain’s Hottest Holiday Show Draw New Audiences to Your Theatre?” which graced the cover of Southern Theatre Magazine’s fall edition. In it, he mentions our show, the FIRST EVER West Texas Panto premiering here at Lubbock Community Theatre.
