The story follows a young lawyer and a married woman in pre-revolutionary Russia on a walk through the woods; their friendship has reached an impasse.

Anne of Green Gables - The Musical™ Listing: Anne of Green Gables - The Musical™
The Charlottetown Festival's crown jewel musical returns for its 55th consecutive summer, a testament to the global appeal of "a classic inspired by a classic". This is the enduring story of an orphan girl who came from away and changed the Island forever. This family musical tells the poignant and funny story of a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley who arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life. Her destination is the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When she arrives at Green Gables, Anne is devastated when she discovers that the elderly couple is expecting a boy from the orphanage…and then ecstatic when they decide to keep her. With her fiery temper, love of melodrama and romance, and penchant for misadventure, she brings laughter, love, and more than a little consternation to the Cuthbert's quiet lives. In return, Anne finds the happiness and the home she has longed for all her life.

This sunny ABBA-driven tale follows Donna, an independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on a Greek island. She is about to let go of Sophie, the spirited daughter she has raised alone. For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best friends – practical and no-nonsense Rosie, and wealthy, multi-divorcée Tanya – from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos; however, after reading her mother’s diary, Sophie secretly invites three guests of her own. On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Greek paradise they last visited two decades ago. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities!
