Every year, we go see Anne of Green Gables. it has become one of our regular summer treats. This year, we were presented with the many faces of Anne:
16 talented performers have played the role of Anne in its 50 years in Charlottetown.
It has received the honour being the longest running musical performance in the World.
Every year we see Anne, and every year we are delightfully rewarded with an enchanting performance, somehow always better than last year.
The newly renovated Confederation Centre of the Arts makes viewing the performance even more enjoyable with better seating, better lighting, and more use of audio visual effects.
Anne, Marilla and Matthew are outstanding in their roles. The rest of the crew is equally talented. The dance routines are full of energy, the singing is superb and the performances captivating. Other than the inevitable sad ending, I cannot think of anything to make the performance any better. Yet I expect that next year I will be rewarded with some more surprises.
Be sure to include a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday in your trip to Prince Edward Island so you will not miss this wonderful performance.
I remain a truly loyal Anne of Green Gables fan.
