[Anne (from left, Kathryn Chicoine) and Marilla (Monica Rosales) are in "Anne of Green Gables."]
Angelina Calvetti of Brookfield plays Ruby.
"Ruby, my character, was out of my comfort zone, at first, because she is salty and sassy," Calvetti said. … "Ruby is oversensitive, but she grows … to be more independent, and realizes her own intelligence. In the end, she decides she needs no one to … fight her battles for her."
Also featured in the cast are Ara Bonsignore, Sophia Griffith, Sophia Joyce, Joy Luchsinger and Peter Navarre.
