DIANA BARRY Anne’s best friend – a pretty girl Anne’s age who lives next door to Green Gables. Diana and Anne become bosom friends immediately after they meet.

RACHEL LYNDE The town busybody, she likes nothing better than to share her opinion with everyone and never fails to advise Marilla on how to raise Anne.

JOSIE PYE A girl in Anne’s class – a “born trouble-maker” – who likes Gilbert and resents Anne for the feelings he has for her.

NOTE: To increase the cast size – Additional cast members can be added as townspeople, schoolchildren, etc. – or doubled roles may be played by two separate actors. To reduce the cast size – You may consolidate the lines spoken by JANE ANDREWS and RUBY GILLIS into the character of JANE ANDREWS. The SHOP GIRL, in turn, could then be doubled by the actor who plays JANE or JOSIE. You may also eliminate the role of TOMMY SLOAN and reassign his lines as desired. One actor could also double the roles of MRS. BLEWETT and MRS. BARRY.
