Seeking:

[Diana Barry] – classmate and neighbor of Anne’s and her eventual best friend. Beautiful, elegant, with a simple/naïve nature that belies a keen intuition. On paper she is Anne’s opposite, but clearly her soul mate. Strong belt/mix.

[Marilla Cuthbert] – a hard, stolid spinster and the proprietress of Green Gables – the farm she shares with her younger brother, Matthew.

[Matthew Cuthbert] – Marilla’s quiet and hard-working younger brother, and the co-occupant of their family farm, Green Gables. As warm and gentle as his sister is not, he is immediately taken by Anne’s unique and vibrant personality and successfully lobbies to give her a home. Strong singer.
