A happy event will take place at Green Gables, PEI National Park of Canada on Saturday June 20th from 5 to 7 pm.
The Montgomery Theatre in conjunction with Parks Canada will be announcing a new production, Maud of Cavendish, which will be the first professional theatre production ever to take place in a National Park. Written by Canadian playwright Anne Kathleen McLaughlin and starring National Theatre School instructor Julia Lenardon as Lucy Maud Montgomery, the play will be performed at Green Gables House. Audiences of 25 persons will follow Maud through the house and grounds as she explores an author’s excitement of imagination. This launch is timed to celebrate the 101st anniversary of the publication of Montgomery’s most famous novel, Anne of Green Gables. Study Abroad Canada presents Maud of Cavendish as part of The Montgomery Theatre’s 2009 Season.
Also to be announced at this event is the LMM Legacy Series Concerts to be held on three Monday evenings in August at The Montgomery Theatre at Avonlea Village. Funded in part by Heritage Canada, this series of concerts will celebrate the works of Island artists Angele Arsenault, Lennie Gallant and the late Poet Laureate, Frank Ledwell. These artists works will be interpreted by the best of PEI’s artists as a tribute to their role models. Fittingly, bestofpei presents The L.M.M. Legacy Series Concerts, beginning August 3, 2009.
All are welcome to come out to enjoy the festivities and refreshments provided by bestofpei and Gahan House Breweries.
