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?

Wonderful theater with a restaurant, gift shop and gallery on site. Fantastic world renowned live theater productions in a classy environment. "Anne of green gables" and "riverdance" were two of our favorites. Not to be missed on your visit to quaint Charlottetown.
