Fantastic show. Great comedy with no real obscene material. The Center has been re-done. Beautiful, middle aisle, new colors, great lighting and everything lends itself to a great professional evening of entertainment - no matter what one goes to see. A pleasure to see the new improvements.

The Confederation Centre is an institution. I have loved this place since I went to see Anne of Green Gables at five years old. The theatre has recently been redone and more comfortable now. The entertainment that is part of the Charlottetown Festival is excellent. The travelling shows and the local "act"presentations are wonderful too. I love Mavors, the restaurant.... More

Easy to get to in Charlottetown and worth a Visit. Lots to do in a central location. Parking close can be a hassle in peak season so plan ahead. Great place to hang out on a rainy day. Free to walk in and look around. Sometimes you can find the off duty Show musicians doing street music on the side... More

I have lived this fair City of Charlottetown only for eight years and although I remember visiting the Confed Centre as a kid, where most young girls have been exposed to the wonderful musical, Anne of Green Gables, based on the novel by Lucy Maude Montgomery, it was not until I moved here that I actually fully appreciated what a...

This is to all the husbands whose knees get wobbly when their wives say they want to go see this musical because they read the book when they were younger. Go see the musical! Instead of fighting it, just go. You will have a terrific time...and you'll make your wife happy. It's a fun show.

Two and a half hours of Canada's best rock, all by Canadian musicians and performs. Ticket prices very fair value. If it returns, see it.
