PollyAnna: Youth Musical @ Country Gate Players

Friday, July 19, 2024 to Sunday, July 21, 2024

Country Gate Players presents PollyAnna, the story of a positive and upbeat orphan girl whose personality is contagious and impacts the entire community. She is sent to live with her “dutiful” but frigid, Aunt Polly in Beldingsville, Vermont with story narration by Nancy, the house maid.

Additional members of Aunt Polly’s staff are Tom the gardener, Martha the cook, and Tim the mechanic, John Pendleton, the richest man in town, Dr. Chilton, Aunt Polly’s long ago love, Reverend Ford, the spiritual leader of the community and Jimmy Bean, Pollyanna’s friend and ally. The sickly Mrs. Snow and daughter Millie provide light comic relief to the dramatic story. The uppity members of the Ladies Aid Society are featured roles comprised of Mrs. McGillicutty, Mrs. Bouregard and Mrs. Hoffinfeffer. Rounding out the principal characters is Mr. Pendleton’s cranky housekeeper, Gertrude.

This has been adapted by Bill Scurato of Harmony Township, and is based on the 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter.
