The Centre for All Canadians

Young Company

| Outdoor Amphitheatre
The Confederation Centre Young Company, in partnership with the TD Ready Commitment, is one of our country’s leading performance-based training programs. With a strong focus on all three performance disciplines, 12 young artists between 18-30 years of age from across Canada gather to share their lived experiences and present stories that define us as Canadians.

For more than 25 seasons, the troupe has come from across Canada each summer to receive training at the Centre covering all aspects of life in performance—from voice to dance to acting to group creation, all led by top theatre professionals. ‘YoCo’, as it is affectionately known, also performs an original musical production, created during the rehearsal process. A part of The Charlottetown Festival, this family-friendly production is performed, free of charge, six days-a-week, in the Confederation Centre outdoor amphitheatre.

Alums include: Hailey Gillis, Vanessa Sears, Jacob MacInnis, Jessica Gallant, Michelle Bouey, Aaron Hastelow, Connor Lucas, Christopher Wilson, Neil Bartram and Brian Hill, and many, many more.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
