Anne of Green Gables: The Musical

We've purchased our tickets to see Anne of Green Gables: The Musical at the Charlottetown Festival during our trip.  I hear that the production has recently been revamped so it will be interesting to see what changes have been made.  The script revisions are being made by Don Harron who is the only remaining creator of the original musical.  The production also has a new director, Marcia Kash, who has a "new concept" and a "new design."
I previously saw a production of Anne at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto in 1991.  Jessica Wilson appeared as Anne in that production.  Unfortunately, I cannot find my ticket or program and I usually save those!

Anne of Green Gables: The Musical has been running continuously in PEI for 46 years!  There's also a relatively new production called Anne & Gilbert: The Musical which launched in 2005 in Summerside.  I haven't yet bought tickets for that one but I hear that it's also quite good so I may try the box office if I have time.
