Confederation Centre of the Arts is a national art centre showcasing the best in Canadian visual and performing arts. Stretching over an entire city block the Centre houses a world class art gallery, Mavor's restaurant, a locally supplied gift shop, three expansive conference rooms, and a beautiful 1200 seat theatre. A library, an outdoor amphitheater, and spacious outdoor courtyard are also located on site. The Mack theatre is owned and operated by the Centre which is located steps away. It’s a big year for The Charlottetown Festival (the Centre’s annual summer festival) with five different productions. In the Centre’s intimate studio theatre, love blossoms at the blue line in Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad. Two lonely single parents find romance at the rink – watching their kids play a season of minor hockey from the sidelines. This romantic comedy has toured every province in Canada, and was written by Cape Bretoner Michael Melski and directed by Adam Brazier, Artistic Director of The Charlottetown Festival. The Mack welcomes Bittergirl: The Musical to the stage. Howlingly funny, relatable and emotionally Cathartic, Bittergirl follows three Canadian women in their plunge from what they think is romantic bliss to total breakup, devastation and through the journey back to happiness. The musical features 1960’s pop and doowop hits such as Dion’s ‘The Wanderer’, Shirelles ‘Mama Said’, ‘The Ronnettes’, ‘Be My Baby’, hits from the Supremes, and more. Featured in the Homburg Stage is Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™, recently named world’s longest running annual musical by Guinness World Records! This classic family musical has been seen by millions world-wide and toured to Broadway, London, and Tokyo. The cast is comprised of 26 pros from all across Canada whose elite triple-threat skills continue to amaze audience. The Homburg Theatre also welcomes the Atlantic Canadian premiere of the Stratford Festival/National Arts Centre hit Alice Through the Looking-Glass. The Production follows young Alice, who climbs through her living-room mirror, entering a world of wonders populated by such fantastical characters as Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the fearsome Jabberwock. Children and adults alike will be delighted by this spectacular journey into the tobsy-turvy realm of the dreaming world. Finishing off the season on the Homburg Stage is Evangeline, inspired by Longfellow’s famous poem. Written and conceived by Ted Dykstra, this critically acclaimed production recounts the tale of star-crossed lovers Gabriel and Evangeline, torn apart during the 1755 Acadian Deportation. The Charlottetown Festival season opens June 11 and continues to October 10, at Confederation Centre in Charlottetown. Get your tickets today!

I don't know why this isn't listed on permanent activities on PEI as it runs every summer season. This musical was SO good. And the lead role (Anne) is played by an islander which the people of PEI are very proud of. This play deserves accolades up there with those long running shows on Broadway in NYC! If you love...

This is the heart of the arts in downtown Charlottetown. It has galleries, a theater, a restaurant, and more all contained in one complex. There are stores down under the complex. We did not go to any of the shows, but were searching for the display about Province House, which we did find in the complex. They show a video... More

I have lived in Charlottetown most of my life. I have been to The Confederation. Center many times. I was thoroughly pleased with the investment into the renovations. The lighting is a major improvement. the seats are a nice touch as well. The sound system rivals any similar facility on the main land. I look forward to seeing many more... More

A tour of the Confederation Centre of the Arts is a must to see all the exhibits, pictures and paintings. While there take in a nice supper & then see the Anne of Green Gables Production. You will be sure to leave with a smile on your face after so many chuckles!!

A wonderful adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass...a must-see show: humorous, with imaginative props and great acting. If you are hearing-impaired, like me, do not get Balcony seats
