THE DREAM CATCHERS – CONFEDERATION CENTRE YOUNG COMPANY | JUNE 21 – AUGUST 19 | OUTDOOR AMPHITHEATRE
Special for Canada’s 150th anniversary our Confederation Centre Young Company weaves the dreams and visions of young people from across the country into a moving, original new musical.
The Dream Catchers: Exploring the dreams of young Canadians
Confederation Centre’s signature project for Canada 150 is The Dream Catchers, a national touring theatre production, funded by the Government of Canada. The Centre’s
creative team will visit communities across Canada, working with young people, local artists, and Indigenous representatives to create artistic interpretations of their vision for Canada’s future. Music, dance, visual arts, and traditional crafts will merge into a musical theatre performance, The Dream Catchers that celebrates our country’s bold future. This vibrant new musical will be performed by the Young Company in the outdoor amphitheatre and at events across the country. Actual dreamcatchers will also be created by the youth in each workshop and integrated by Indigenous visual artist Nick Huard into a large national dreamcatcher exhibited at the Centre.
Monday to Saturday 12:00 – 5:00 PM (Closed Sunday)
Please call 1-800-565-0278 or 902-566-1267 for information.

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.
Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
