FULL CAST AND CREATIVE TEAM ANNOUNCED FOR TELL TALE HARBOUR AT THE CHARLOTTETOWN FESTIVAL
Proudly sponsored by The Gray Group Real Estate & Development, The 2022 Charlottetown Festival includes seven productions across the Centre’s three venues – including Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™, Betty’s Song, and Hey Viola!
Sponsored by Prince Edward Island Potatoes, Tell Tale Harbour is the story of a struggling Atlantic fishing village looking for a miracle. An opportunity arises to bring a state-of-the-art frozen french fry facility to town, but there’s just one major obstacle; to secure the factory, the harbour must have a full-time resident doctor. Realizing this might be their last chance to save their beloved community, the townspeople come together to charm an interim doctor into moving there permanently. Part heist and part farce with lots of music, this hilarious show celebrates the people, the trials, and the triumphs of living in a small community in Atlantic Canada.
Joining Doyle is a talented cast of performers from across Canada, including Islanders Cameron MacDuffee, Charlotte Moore, Marlane O’Brien, and Kristen Pottle.
Several other Festival alumni are set to make their return, including Stephen Guy-McGrath, Alana Hibbert, Jacob MacInnis, Laurie Murdoch, and Jamie Murray.
Cast members making their Festival debut include Michelle Bardach, Jahlen Barnes, Justin Eddy, Shakeil Rollock, Marquita Walsh, and Alison Woolridge.
The musical is directed by Jillian Keiley, a Newfoundlander who has spent a decade as the artistic director of the National Arts Centre English Theatre in Ottawa, ON. The cast and creative team of Tell Tale Harbour recently came together in Charlottetown for a three-week workshop that included a recording session for a cast album, which will be released with the musical’s premiere this summer.
“It has been thrilling to have this talented group together in the same room,” says Keiley. “You can feel the electricity!”
