ARTS | Alan Doyle Makes Live Theatre Debut in ‘Tell Tale Harbour’

Alan Doyle is comfortable with the stage, to be sure, but this will be completely different.

Based on the screenplay The Grand Seduction by Ken Scott, Tell Tell Habour is an all new musical comedy that celebrates the people, the trials, and the triumphs of living in a small community in Atlantic Canada.


Co-written by, and starring music icon Alan Doyle, the story of Tell Tale Harbour is as relatable as it is ridiculous, as hilarious as it is heartfelt, and full of East Coast pride.

“Tell Tale Harbour will be a night of laughs, cries and songs through Summer 2022 in beautiful Prince Edward Island,” Doyle shared of the event that will take place in Prince Edward Island next summer. “I am beyond excited to tell you that the fella in the lead role in this musical is me.

Deep in the heart of Atlantic Canada sits a small harbour slowly losing hope. The once bountiful fishing village is struggling to survive, and half the population is relocating to the mainland for better opportunities. The community is looking for a miracle when an opportunity arises to bring a state-of-the-art frozen french fry facility to town. There’s just one major obstacle; to secure the factory, the harbour must have a full-time resident doctor. Realizing this might be their last chance to save their beloved community, the townspeople come together to charm an interim doctor into moving there permanently.

Tell Tale Harbour opens June 23 at the 2022 Charlottetown Theatre Festival and is set to run until Sept. 24. Preview shows begin June 14.
