2020 CONFEDERATION PLAYERS
Do you have a passion for history?
Do you love to weave a tale whether it be based in truth or only fleetingly so?
Interested in spending your days sharing your passion for history and storytelling with others in amongst games of horseshoes, croquet and the occasional duel? Have we got the job for you!
The Confederation Players offers a glimpse into the cultural and historical context of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference and Confederation 1867 through historic vignettes, improvised interactions, and guided experiential tours of Olde Charlottetown. Players are trained to assume the roles of key characters around the time of Confederation and to PEI’s important role as the Birthplace of Confederation. The program’s focus is on promoting and sharing Canadian history through entertaining and informative interactions through daily tours interwoven with historic vignettes, improvised interactions, songs and so much more.
Confederation Players will be employed on a seasonal, full-time basis in Charlottetown, PEI from June 8th – August 16th, 2020. Additional work may be offered for special events and into the fall.
