Each summer, the Centre presents The Charlottetown Festival – the largest musical theatre festival in Atlantic Canada since 1965. The Festival is dedicated to creating new Canadian works and bolstering our nation’s vibrant musical theatre scene. Featuring the finest performers, designers, writers, and musicians, the professional theatre celebrates Canadian stories by exploring our origins, ideals, and ongoing evolution. The Festival has created more than 80 original musicals in its history, including celebrated works like Evangeline, Emily, A Misfortune, Stories from the Red-Dirt Road, Come-All-Ye, Searching for Abegweit: The Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant, Les Feux Follets, Kronborg 1582, and of course, Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™. ANNE™ has been presented every summer since 1965, holding the Guinness Record for longest-running annual musical in the world.
