I'd not been in Mavors before it was a very good choice. They had a good selection of red wines, and I took full advantage of the wintertime promotion that was underway. I ordered a sweet potato corn chowder that was excellent, served with fluffy mashed potatoes and root vegetables. The special included a chocolate dessert that I offered to... More

My family and I have never had a bad experience at the Confederation Centre of Arts. There is not a bad seat and the sound is spectacular. There is nothing we don't have on our little island including top notch musicals and plays. Come and see for yourself and enjoy the island way.

Every time one turns around there is yet another venue with yet another excellent show offered in it. The Confederation Center is a sight to behold. The gift shop is wonderful and worth the visit, show or not.

I have never been disapointed witth a performance at the Confederation Centre. The seating is superb, the renovations are excellent and the performances are top quality! I've been to Broadway and a few other major theaters in the US and CONFEDERATION CENTER IN CHARLOTTETOWN IS ON PAR!

Hi, With the newly completed renovations, there is not a bad seat in the house. We say Moma Mia from the $25.00 seats on the side. For 2017, we will definitely order in advance for this same seating area. And, for this price, we will enjoy maybe 3 different shows.

For a city the size of Charlottetown, the Centre is an incredible venue. I was lucky enough to see Mama Mia there. The stage is very close to all seating areas, the sound is superb, and when you exit the theater itself, you enter into a unique artisans' gift shop.

Greatest long running show. Very family orientated. Love the story and music. My cousin was Anne for two years. The Confederation is a wonderful building. A must in the heart of the city.
