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!

We attended the musical Anne of Green Gables in June. The musical itself was wonderful- funny and poignant. The cast were spot on in their presentation, and the music was fabulous. The venue is lovely and the seating quite comfortable. All that being said, I do have one major concern. When we arrived at the theatre, my friend approached the... More

I've seen this musical several times but not recently. I took my teenaged daughter and her friend and we all enjoyed the performance very much. Great singing, dancing, acting and always a great story.

Came here for the Stephen Lewis lecture. While the theatre seems very tightly put together, the whole place is nicely decorated and staff is excellent. Great venue for future events/talks, and right downtown near the shopping district.

We went to see Anne of Green Gables - the Musicale, and we were so thankful that we didn't skip this worthwhile activity in Charlottetown! The play was lively, funny and very well done. My 12 year old daughter and I (and even my reluctant husband) enjoyed every minute of it. We booked online about one month before our trip... More

Went to see Anne of Green Gables, the musical one evening during our stay in Charlottetown. The theatre is very accessible and comfortable with good views of the stage throughout. Nice modern and comfortable seating with plenty of leg room. Plenty toilet facilities for customers at the break. Thoroughly enjoyed the musical and the location.

Most of us in the lower 48 have no good understanding of the history of our northern confreres, and this centre makes up for the ignorance with an engaging 17 minute video. The art is interesting so do not leave PEI without stopping in.

We went to see Anne of Green Gables here and as it was a matinee, it seemed quite geared towards families with young children such as ourselves. There were booster seats readily available and child-friendly snacks at intermission. The building itself is very impressive. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are in a special space.

If someone makes a trip to PEI from the other side of the world to immerse in the marvel of Anne of Green Gables, it is a cardinal sin to miss this show! A long running production with many generations of performers, it’s no surprise this is held at the biggest theatre in PEI. The theatre has good sized auditorium... More
