A lit­tle magic from the is­land

Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Lucy Maud Mont­gomery, will soon go on stage in Wolfville. It stars Becca Guilder­son, Si­mon Pawlowski and Nikki Lan­nan.

Touted as one of Canada’s new­est mu­si­cals, the up­com­ing pro­duc­tion marks the first time that Anne & Gil­bert is be­ing per­formed in Nova Sco­tia. An in­spir­ing story, it fea­tures themes of love and the im­por­tance of fam­ily, friends and our com­mu­ni­ties. This show is one that will surely get toes- tap­ping as the Stage Prophets cast and crew bring this story to life.

Anne & Gil­bert be­gins in the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side of Prince Ed­ward Is­land. Anne is now an in­de­pen­dent- minded young woman about to be­gin her first job teach­ing in a one­room school­house. Ro­man­tic com­pli­ca­tions un­fold when child­hood sweet­heart Gil­bert Blythe pro­poses mar­riage and he’s not her only suitor.

Trou­bled by her or­phan past, Anne doubts if she can love any­one. But as Anne dis­cov­ers the truth about her par­ents, a path to fu­ture hap­pi­ness is re­vealed.

Award- win­ning songs, mem­o­rable com­edy and drama, and a mes­sage of en­dur­ing love, hope and friend­ship make Anne & Gil­bert un­for­get­table fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment.

Six per­for­mances take place from May 18- 21, with shows each even­ing at 7 p. m., and Satur­day and Sun­day mati­nees at 1: 30 p. m. at the Fes­ti­val Theatre Wolfville.
