My husband and I bought tickets to see Anne and Gilbert at the Guild. We bought our tickets at the box office for a 4:00PM show. We were told that General Admission tickets, at over $40 each didn't give us assigned seats, so we should arrive at 3:30 to be sure we could sit together. We were also told the doors opened at 3:30. We arrived at 3:32 to a long line of people, by the time the doors opened at 3:40 and we made our way into the theatre there were no general admission seats empty, so we sat in empty "premium" seats. We were asked to move from there and told to take different premium seats, which we were promptly kicked out of. At that point we asked for a refund, which they were hesitant to give. They told us that we should have arrived an hour before the performance to get seats together. The theatre is tiny, a total of six rows. There is no actual stage just a big floor area and the first row of seats are practically on top of the performance area. The seats are not theatre seats, they are padded chairs that are squished together. In the long run, I'm glad we left, I think it would have been a very uncomfortable two and a half hours. You are much better to go across the street to the Confederation Centre for the Arts, to see Anne of Green Gables the musical. The tickets are cheaper and it's a proper theatre.

We saw the Anne of Green Gables play at the guild. It is located on the main street in town. There is street parking everywhere for free.
I would believe that there is a place inside that serves refreshments. It might be on the lowest level – – basement. I went outside for fresh air, so I missed any refreshments. The temperature in the theater was cool, and pleasant.

"The guild"was a very nice place to watch a play. It is a small theater-- which could maybe hold 75 people? So every seat is fantastic! Because it's small, there are only a few bathrooms, and even with 75 people, the mad dash at intermission will make you wait.

I would highly recommend going to see a play at "the guild ". It was a pleasant venue, conveniently located, and they really have amazing talent for such a remote location.

Here's a tip! Because the venue is quite small consider sitting second, third, or fourth row center. You will get the most fantastic experience that way!

Please press "helpful" if you found this review insightful, as I wonder if anyone actually reads these......

I am actually not generally someone who frequents musicals often, but we decided to check out Anne and Gilbert the musical since we were, after all, in Prince Edward Island. My wife grew up reading the books at night with her Dad and she brought me up to speed on the story (I was completely unfamiliar with the whole Anne of Green Gables thing).

Anyway, what I want to say about this production is that it is enchanting, fun, and memorable. We were singing some of the songs (e.g. You're Island, You're Island...) for the next week on our vacation. The actors, singers, and dancers are up close since it is a black box theater. We have one of these types of theaters where we are from in Salt Lake City (Hale Center Theater) and it is very popular.

This is a top-notch performance and it is riveting and emotional and I was completely captivated from start to finish. The story is one of budding romance but the plot and songs give you a little bit of the culture and even some of the quirks of PEI and the so-called "Islanders".

We visited PEI in July and took in the show Atlantic Blue featuring Tara MacLean. Great introduction to east coast musicians and their music and a very novel presentation. Tara has a great voice and her band is very talented as well. Perhaps the best concert I've ever attended but I may be biased...this is the music I love in the place I grew up!

We went to The Guild Theater to see Anne and Gilbert--a wonderful musical. When we walked into the theater we were a little concerned that this was going to be an overpriced, undertalented production but we couldn't have been more wrong. Though it was pricey--we were told there were only the Best View seats left, you can by the worst view seats and it will be the same. Nonetheless, the production from singing to dancing to acting was absolutely amazing. Everything was stellar. There is a wine bar and gallery downstairs in the building. The wine is not expensive and you can take your glass into the theater.

While in Charlottetown we went to a production of Anne and Gilbert at the Guild. The theater is very small and if you sit in the front row you are ON the stage! The intimacy of the venue literally put you close enough to be looking the cast directly in the eyes. The production had some first rate performances, but it was the intimacy of the venue that made it an enjoyable experience.

I was gifted a ticket for The Guild so my husband and I enjoyed the Anne & Gilbert Musical earlier this month. The facility is a small, intimate theatre and our second row seats had us "up close & personal" with the performers. But it was a most enjoyable show, talented actors, singers and musicians. Delightful in every way and we would welcome an opportunity to see it a second time.

We went to the Stan Rogers tribute show: A Matter of Heart. The singers/actors/musicians were very good. The refrain of Rise Again was repeated throughout the show. Some of the songs were lesser known ones of Stan's but all were enjoyable and we learned a lot more about Stan.

It was so neat to see these performers doing what they wanted with such enthusiasm. You sure got a family feeling and the audience loved it. We especially enjoyed the host, he was a natural. Thanks for sharing your talents. The theatre is small and provides for an intimate experience. I loved it!!!🎼
