The 2018 Charlottetown Festival will be a celebration of rock, blues and local treasures. This summer we present the 54th season of Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™; the rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as two world premieres at The Mack - Dutch Mason and Stories from the Red Dirt Road. June 7 - September 22, 2018.

Jesus Christ Superstar
June 7 - September 22, 2018   |  Homburg Theatre  | 1:30 pm & 8:00 pm
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless rock opera set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Sponsored by Tim Hortons

Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™
June 18 - September 22, 2018  |  Homburg Theatre  |  1:30 pm & 7:30 pm
Now in its Guinness Record-setting 54th season, the original Anne musical is a Canadian classic in every sense of the word. Based on L.M. Montgomery's beloved novel, the musical adaptation of the story of an imaginative red-haired orphan searching for belonging is guaranteed to tug at heartstrings and tickle funny bones.

Dutch Mason
June 30 - September 22, 2018  |  The Mack  |  8:00 pm
Take 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 Bedford out of his buttoned-down conformity. Warning: Strong language, amazing music and regrettable nudity.

Stories from the Red Dirt Road
August 2 - September 21, 2018  |  The Mack  |  7:30 pm
Funny, inspiring, heartfelt and theatrical. Four Island stories woven together through song, and the red dirt road itself that join our lives together. Sponsored by Key Murray Law
