My wife and I visited Charlottetown in July and saw Mama Mia. We had excellent seats for a wonderful show. Great location that we could walk to from the B & B (Shipwright Inn) that we were staying at.

Our primary reason for visiting the Confederation Centre of the Arts was to see the exhibit detailing the history around the events of 1864. Pretty disappointing. We then visited the art gallery, which was fine.

Anyone who loves Abba music will love this performance. Costumes and singing were wonderful......good fun. Anne of Green Gables, the musical is also running this year and it is always a great show.

My wife and I attended the Mamma Mia show at the Confederation Centre of the Arts on August 5. The Homburg Theatre, the setting for Mamma Mia, is a very modern theatre with great sight lines and perfect sound. The seats are comfortable and spacious. The show itself is great fun. While not really my "cup of tea" musically (I'm... More

My sister-in-law was visiting from Ontario so we got tickets to see Momma Mia - it was fantastic! There are no bad seats in the Centre! We heard people behind us saying they saw Momma Mia on Broadway and it was better here. So awesome to have this kind of venue right here in Charlottetown.

First, let me say that Mama Mia was thoroughly enjoyable and if you've seen it before in a stage play or movie or wherever, see it again; you'll still love it. But second, do NOT choose the first or second row of the centre balcony. The second row of that balcony contained, to my mind, the best seats in the... More

We saw Mama Mia there and it was not only a great theater group the theater was wonderful. If you sit in row AA is only about 6 rows from the stage and you have a lot more leg room.

Booked tickets months ago for the Anne of Green Gables musical. I believe it sells out, so book in advance if possible. The show was spectacular. They followed the main points of the story without being obsessive about details, which kept the show interesting. Amazing performers. The box office was a bit difficult to find initially as we were pressed... More
