Pollyanna is a new musical based on the classic 1913 novel by Eleanor Porter. It is an uplifting tale of hope triumphing over adversity, and how the power of one young girl’s positivity can – and does – change the people around her.
Pollyanna Whittier, an extraordinary eleven year old orphan, is sent to live with her stern Aunt Polly in the unhappy town of Beldingville, Vermont. Forbidden to speak of her parents in the presence of her aunt, Pollyanna plays the “Glad Game” to keep her spirits up. When tragedy strikes, even Aunt Polly must turn to the Glad Game to understand how much her outlook has changed since accepting Pollyanna into her life. Previously showcased at the 2016 “From Page to Stage” Festival in London, England, shortlisted for the Playwrights Guild of Canada – Best Musical ’16 and presented at the Charlottetown Festival Theatre Conference in PEI in ’17.
This World Premiere production will have direction by Dora Award winner Robert McQueen, book and lyrics by Steven Gallagher and music by Linda Barnett.
