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 knew we had to see Anne of Green Gables while in PEI. We had a large group of people in our party and we were all thrilled to see Anne of Green Gables, The Musical. It was so good. The actors were amazing as they sang and shared the story of Anne, with an e! The young lady who... More

Saw two shows at the CCA last month. The space itself is spectacular. Lots of room, and a wonderful art gallery. The theatre is beautiful and the seats are very comfy. We were in Row L for Anne and the sightlines were great...no issues. My only complaint? Please stop selling snacks in the lobby that come in cellophane wrappers! I... More

We took our family to see the Anne of Green Gables play. My kids weren't familiar with the books so I wasn't sure if they would enjoy the event. When we got there from the very beginning they were mesmerized. It was a great choice for a rainy afternoon and made us all want to read the books!

Every year we go to see Anne of Green Gables and the new seating arrangement in the theatre is much better than it was years ago. You don't have to climb over 50 people if you are seated in the centre section. Very nicely done renovations!

Where it's at in Charlottetown. We have been to many theatrical offerings in this amazing building complex located in the centre of the city. Enjoyed every one. The art gallery is always a treat. Always something happening either in the place or surrounding it. Recommend it as your first stop if you are new to the city.

Impressive auditorium, it accommodated a production with high demands for moving scenery and ungainly mobile props. The sound from the orchestra pit was just the right volume. Excellent support in the facility for a complex production. Bravo!

The Confederation Centre of the Arts was opened officially in 1967 as a celebration of Canada's centennial and has been producing excellent theatre productions ever since. Canada's longest running annual musical "Anne of Green Gables" is here along with top notch theatrical productions performed by some of our country's best actors. Evangeline opens here in a couple of weeks, starring... More

Parts of this were very nice, but the art was a little disappointing. The art portion looked as though someone when to Goodwill and put it in a gallery. The story of confederation was very well done.
