Jul 18, 2007 — A new toe-tappin' musical opens tonight at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque, Ontario. Anne and Gilbert is based on the book Anne of Green Gables by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. The story is set on Prince Edward Island, and the musical was co-written by singer/songwriter Nancy White. White is Canada's best-loved satirist and is perhaps best known for the song "Stickers on Fruit." She told Todd Moe that she grew up on Prince Edward Island.
