We were not in town long enough to take in a play, but we stopped by anyway and enjoyed the art gallery. We liked the portraits.

I am not a fan of musicals and never read the books, but booked this for the three teenagers. I was pleasantly surprised. The seats were comfortable, booking were easy, the production was very good - great props, music, choreography, costumes etc. We had a great evening out as a family, even sheds some tears when Matthew died.....

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so maybe we had some sand in our eyes but we were unimpressed by the large exhibit of abstract works on the second floor by Loren Mackenzie (sp?). We preferred the exhibit of portraits on the main floor. There was an interesting series of exhibits featuring a man-cougar and a man-bison. Some... More

Saw "Anne of Green Gables, the Musical" (which seemed particularly appropriate while visiting PEI). Was able to get same-day tickets and an excellent seat. The theater is tiered, which means there is not a bad seat in the house. Staff was helpful and pleasant. There was surprisingly good talent on the stage. Truly a good evening of musical theater.
