The Guild Summer Festival in Charlottetown is adding five performances of Tapestry: A Tribute to Carole King, as part of its first professional season of shows produced in-house.
This is the second extension to the run originally set to end on August 14; it will now close on August 28 after 21 performances.
“Even after increasing capacity, our entire existing run and extension is over 96% sold out, so we are announcing yet another extension of five more performances,” Guild CEO Alanna Jankov said in a press release.
“It is clear that Atlantic Canada is ready to get back to live entertainment. Demand has been overwhelming.”
Tapestry: A Tribute to Carole King is helmed by The Guild’s first artistic director Geordie Brown who is musical director and also plays the piano. The show stars an ensemble of Brieonna Locche, Stephane Hood, Andrew Murray, Julien Kitson and Canadian theatre legend Charlotte Moore. Joining the ensemble is drummer Sean Kilbride, on hiatus from the Toronto production of Come From Away. The show features styling by Michelle Bohn, with Matt MacInnis as production stage manager.
The festival’s mainstage series includes The Guild’s 2019 production of Singalong Jubilee – A Musical Tribute running to August 10. A new production of Ellen Denny’s modern comedy Pleasureville closed on July 23.
