“Follow that star, that Maritime Star, straight to the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre in Summerside where one will find what is undoubtedly one of the best theatrical productions gracing any stage on the Island this summer.
The production is made complete with a cast that is nothing short of amazing. Leisa Way, who is no stranger to the stage, having played Anne in the Confederation Centre production for numerous years, wowed the audience with her powerful voice.
She brings new life and emotion to the songs of the production, which were composed by one of the Maritime’s best songwriters, Alan Rankin.
Ballads such as Make a Home/You Are My Love that Way and (Todd) Noel perform, stir the emotions, often causing the tears to flow, and the title song will stir a tear in even the most cynic at heart.

“The cast is stellar. Leisa Way who is no stranger to the Island audiences, is wonderful in the lead role. She has an energy that befits Carly and a voice that brings out all the emotion songwriter Allan Rankin could hope for in his lyrics.”
