Theatre Kent opens with Anne of Green Gables



Theatre Kent is presenting the musical family favourite Anne Of Green Gables from Nov. 10 to Nov. 12 at the Kiwanis Theatre in Chatham.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. all three nights, and a special matinee will take place on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
