Confederation Centre of the Arts reports ticket sales for Anne of Green Gables: The Musical were at their highest since 2008 during the 2018 Charlottetown Summer Festival.
The second mainstage show – Jesus Christ Superstar – averaged about 443 people a show or 40 per cent of theatre capacity.
The new show was successful according to General Manager Dean Constable but may not have been as popular as Mamma Mia! in 2017.
Both Anne of Green Gables, Mamma Mia and Kronborg will all be returning in 2019.
Anne sold over 33-thousand tickets during 54 performances and averaged about 615 people per show.
