Charlottetown Festival announces the line up for the 2018 season

The 2018 Festival will run June 7 to September 22 and include the 54th season of Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™, the rock-opera Jesus Christ Superstar and two new musicals, Dutch Mason and Stories from the Red Dirt Road.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera, first produced in 1970, set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. The music is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. Charlottetown Festival Artistic Director, Adam Brazier will direct.

“The themes of this timeless classic remain universal, their resonance today is palpable, as western civilization wrestles with existential questions about where power is held, where it should be held, and how fame affects the balance,” said Brazier.

At The Mack, Dutch Mason, inspired by the non-fictional book “On the Road with Dutch Mason” by David Bedford and Harvey Sawler, will take audiences on a fictional tour through Atlantic Canada with The Prime Minister of the Blues. When Dutch Mason’s regular harmonica player is sidelined, a Political Science professor and amateur harp player is recruited to join Dutch and his band on a historic road trip that will shock the professor out of his buttoned-down conformity. Warning: Strong language, amazing music and regrettable nudity.

Also at The Mack is Stories from the Red Dirt Road, adapted by festival regular, Marlane O’Brien, from the book And My Name Is…Stories from The Quilt by PEI’s Margie Carmichael. This is a funny, inspiring, heartfelt piece of four Island stories woven together through song.

Additional announcements will be made at a later date, including a new Young Company production.

The Centre has acknowledged the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of PEI, and City of Charlottetown for their continued support.
