The cast and crew of Clarke Middle School’s production of “Anne of Green Gables” recently worked with Broadway actor Chilina Kennedy.

See article here:

Kennedy, who is currently starring as Carole King in the Broadway production of “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical,” flew into Boston on Jan. 14 to spend the day coaching the Clarke students for their production — scheduled to open at the end of the month.

When she was in high school, Kennedy played the role of Anne Shirley in the Charlottetown production of “Anne of Green Gables.” Kennedy provided feedback on scenes, character development, technical elements and musical interpretation. The students then had the opportunity to talk with her about her Broadway experiences and theatrical background.
