The play was excellent, the actors brought the characters To life. I was captivated by the beloved story of a orphan girl Named Anne spelled with a e on the end. Truly Prince Edward Island is a magical place, sandy beaches Quaint houses with flowers every where. Great seafood, Friendly people on every street planning my next trip Soon.

There were many new displays on - one was Graeme Patterson's animation and it was funky but good! THere were also two floors of art by an artist Landon McKenzie sponsored by the Kelowna Art Gallery . Her work was a little vague - but again, artistic and interesting. The best part was watching the confederation video in the replica... More

We managed to catch the last show of the season for Anne of Green Gables, the Musical. The theatre was comfortable and had good sound and sight lines.

Under construction sadly to say. The art itself was unusual. Gift shop very goo, nice selection of artisans. Starting at 11:00 you can hear and watch a short film on how the founding of Canada came to be. I found film well done.

The Anne of Green Gables musical is absolutely fantastic. This was the highlight of our trip. It's extremely well done, made our whole family laugh and cry and I am SO glad we did this. We had read the book but I think even if you hadn't, it would still be excellent. Fantastic job.

We were able to visit the Confederation Centre of the Arts for a short stop. It was a rainy Sunday morning and not everything was opened. Beautiful building with pieces of art. We saw the lobby area of the theater. Wish we had been able to see a production.

Mama Mia was excellent. We had great seats and the play was extremely well done. We also went to Glenda's Kitchen which was like a kitchen party with chowder being made too. It was fun and entertaining

In a visit to Prince Edward Island, it was a prerequisite to visit the Confederation Centre of the Arts theatre where the Anne of Green Gables musical was playing. In the lobby, I saw a display that finally answered a great deal of questions, especially about the fascination that Japanese people had for Anne. The exhibition focused on a time... More

Lucky enough to secure seats for the last production of the season, Aug 27/16, 7:30 pm, Anne of Green Gables The Musical. Had issues with selecting seats online, called the box office and things went very smoothly from there, Very friendly and helpful staff.
