More Amazing Tales of the Atlantic

There’s another chance to catch the second episode of The Amazing Tales of the Atlantic: Presented by The Guild!
Mark your calendars for September 28th!
The Guild brings thrills and adventure to the stage this summer! Amazing Tales of the Atlantic is a live radio play anthology series celebrating the unique residents of the Atlantic. It takes the characters in our community we all know and love and puts them in wild scenarios. Each evening of Amazing Tales of the Atlantic will feature three unique stories and every month audiences will be treated to 3 new chapters of the three ever-evolving tales!
Those tales are:
The DDT Detectives – Set in the wrestling heydays of the 1980’s, Crusher Kevin Cormier and Dashing David Doiron are a hard hitting tag team by night and hard drinking super sleuths by slightly later at night. Kevin and David help the helpless and solve mysteries as they travel from town to town thrilling crowds. It’s the Littlest Hobo meets Murder She Wrote meets Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling.
The B’ylight Zone – There’s some friggin’ thing on the hull of the lobster boat! The B’ylight Zone is a show in the style of the Twilight Zone or Black Mirror and puts colorful maritime locations and characters at the centre of all of the freaky deaky scenarios. Each episode is it’s own thrilling self contained story and set of characters.
Anne of the Green Planet – A precocious human orphan named Anne from the planet Nova Nova Scotia is taken in by a brother and sister scientist duo who live on the space station Avonlea, which orbits a mysterious planetoid called P31. Between school and duties in the lab, Anne and her new friend GilBot find themselves in all sorts of scientific adventures.
Entry is $20 at the door, seats can be reserved in advance by contacting The Guild, 111 Queen Street, Charlottetown at (902)620-3333 or by emailing boxoffice@theguildpei.com with details.

Feelin’ Mighty Proud!

Confederation Centre announces broadcast special celebrating Anne across the Island; 

Guest appearances include Amybeth McNulty, Lennie Gallant, Meaghan Blanchard, Gracie Finley, Emma Rudy and more!

Confederation Centre of the Arts is set to release a one-hour broadcast special entitled Feelin’ Mighty Proud! This Island-wide celebration weaves highlights from the iconic Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ with a summertime journey across the Island, stopping at key destinations that focus on the works of L.M. Montgomery and the lore of Anne Shirley. 

Feelin’ Mighty Proud! is an homage to Montgomery, the original Anne of Green Gables novel, our famed Anne musical, and the Island as a whole,” shares Adam Brazier, artistic director with the Centre. “This project will make every Canadian proud and is a heartfelt reminder of the incredible impact our heroine has made world-wide—one who has brought so many people together for generations.”

Directed by Brazier with Jason Rogerson, this new production is rich with special appearances, including video interviews from such luminaries as Amybeth McNulty (Anne with an E), RH Thompson, Gracie Finley and Glenda Landry, and current ‘Anne’, Emma Rudy. This past summer would have marked Rudy’s second straight season starring in Charlottetown. This season marked the first time in the musical’s 55-year Guinness Record-setting run that it could not be mounted, as the entire Charlottetown Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Rudy is joined here by Hank Stinson and Marlane O’Brien as the Cuthberts, and Catherine O’Brien as Rachel Lynde in a selection of scenes shot on the iconic Homburg Theatre mainstage. More than a dozen Charlottetown Festival company members also appear performing the musical’s title theme, including Islanders Aaron Hastelow, Michelle Bouey, and Josée Boudreau, as well as the Festival Orchestra. 

New performances for the special include rousing original interpretations of the songs of the famed musical, such as ‘If it Hadn’t Been for Me’ by Vishten; ‘The Words’  by Lennie Gallant; ‘Gee I’m Glad I’m No One Else But Me’ from Meaghan Blanchard shot in the famed ‘Anne house’ in Cavendish, ‘Kindred Spirits’ from Ava and Lilly Rashed, and more. Click here to enjoy two sneak peek audio samples from the special!

Feelin’ Mighty Proud will be broadcast in late September and is made possible due to the generous support of Canadian Heritage, the Province of Prince Edward Island, title sponsor CIBC, and production sponsor, CAA. Patrons can follow the Centre’s social media pages and confederationcentre.com for broadcast date and platform details.
