Originally commissioned for the world-famous Charlottetown Festival in Prince Edward Island, Canada, this is the American premiere of a delightful family musical based on the lesser-known Emily of New Moon series of books by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Emily Starr, orphaned after her father dies of tuberculosis, is sent to live with her aunts Elizabeth and Laura and cousin Jimmy. There she meets a group of friends who each dream of greater things. This is a story of dreams and loves and the childhood yearning for success that is part of all our lives and also about the importance of family and roots. Audiences of all ages will fall in love with this beautiful musical tribute to families and home. Emily: The Musical will feature actors from the BCT Young Company alongside our company of professionals.
