Attraction details
Owner description: Harbourfront Theatre opened its doors in 1996, the result of more than a decade of tireless effort on the part of a group of Summerside citizens with a vision to create a state of the art, multi purpose performing arts facility in Prince County. The theatre, along with the Eptek Art & Culture Centre and the Summerside Visitor Information Centre, is housed in The Wyatt Centre, aptly named after one of the facility's major contributors, Dr. Wanda Wyatt. Harbourfront Theatre is owned by Regional Cultural Events Centre Inc., a registered non-profit organization managed by a board of directors, general manager, and director of operations, and boasts a friendly, knowledgeable, professional staff and a dedicated core of over 90 volunteers. Its mission is "to provide a continuous live entertainment service to the Prince Edward Island community and its visitors, featuring both local and touring productions, while being a significant driving force within the community to encourage and nurture the development and appreciation of the performing arts." The facility is ideally suited to a myriad of uses, including plays, concerts, opera, ballet, comedy & magic shows, conferences, seminars, receptions, business mixers, trade shows and public forums. Beautifully appointed and state of the art equipped, the Harbourfront Theatre represents the best of both worlds - large enough to host renowned touring acts, yet small enough so that every one of its 527 seats captures a uniquely intimate performer/audience experience.

A must see even if you don't like musicals. Every actor did a spectacular performance. Plus it is live orchestra.

“Harbourfront Theatre - Anne & Gilbert”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

I had the pleasure of attending the wonderful "Anne & Gilbert" performance again in Aug. 2009 with my Mom, 3 sisters, a brother-in-law and my niece. It was a truly marvelous production and thoroughly enjoyed by all 7 of us! I had been to the show a couple of times in previous years (including opening night the first season!) but this show was even better! Congratulations on being licensed for the first time to theatres in the USA this year. Bravo to all and keep up the great work!

Best wishes
