PEI’s famous redhead will return to the Confederation Centre of the Arts in June, marking the first time the show will be staged since 2019.
Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ will be one of two mainstage productions (along with Tell Tale Harbour) in The 2022 Charlottetown Festival. The production ran annually since the Festival’s launch in 1965 and is recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s longest-running annual musical. The Centre was unable to produce the show in 2020 and 2021 due to pandemic-related challenges.
“We are so excited to welcome the Island’s most beloved orphan back to the stage next season,” says Adam Brazier, Artistic Director of Performing Arts. “The 2022 Festival will focus on stories from our region; stories that speak to east coast culture, resilience, and determination. No one epitomizes that more than Anne of Green Gables.”
Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ will start previews June 18, with opening night slated for June 25. The production will run until September 3. Announcements about casting will be made in the coming months.
