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.

We went to see Belle Sours here. The show was very funny, and the cast had amazing voices. This show was playing as Anne of Green Gables had finished its run for the summer season. If you like to laugh this is a great show. What would you do with a million trading stamps?
