Charlottetown Festival concert at Indian River Festival
St. Mary's Church, Indian River
In celebration of one of the Charlottetown Festival’s most successful musicals, Confederation Centre will revisit Kronborg 1582 this month, presenting a concert performance at the Historic St. Mary’s Church in Indian River on July 28 at 7:30 pm.
Based on the Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet, the rock opera was produced by Confederation Centre in 1975, starring Brent Carver and Beverly D’Angelo, and went on to play on Broadway. The rock musical was created by Cliff Jones and was originally commissioned by the CBC.
Members of The 2017 Charlottetown Festival Ensemble and Orchestra will deliver this concert performance.
The concert will star PEI’s Aaron Hastelow as Hamlet, Cam MacDuffee as Claudius, Kristen Pottle as Ophelia, and Alanna Hibbert as Gertrude.
Additional casting includes Connor Lucas as Laertes, George Masswohl as Polonius, Eric Dahlinger as Horatio, Evan Taylor Benyacar as Marcellus, Robbie Graham-Kuntz as Rosencrantz, Adam Sergison as Guildenstern, Glenda Landry as Honeybelle, Hank Stinson as Ghost/Sexton, and Susan Henley as the M.C. Additional cast members from the Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™ company will complete the Kronborg chorus.
Kronborg: 1582 will be directed by the Festival’s Associate Artistic Director, Mary Francis Moore and musically directed by Craig Fair.
