The Charlottetown Festival had to cancel a performance of Anne of Green Gables: The Musical Tuesday night due to a problem with the sound board.

The board went down during the opening number, giving technical staff little time to find a fix. Communications manager at the Confederation Centre of the Arts Fraser McCallum said repairs were done in time for the Wednesday matinee.

"It's extremely rare that a show is cancelled," said McCallum.

"We are confident all the problems are resolved."

Audience members for Tuesday night's performance were offered refunds or rebooked for other performances.
