Confederation Centre Announces Exciting Line-up of Canadian Talent for Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre!

Sobeys LIVE @ The Centre! returns with a bang this October and the line-up is chalk-full of dynamic performances that appeal to a wide range of Islanders, visitors, and beyond.

“This season truly has something for everyone,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre, a long-standing program of Confederation Centre of the Arts. “The program includes A-list musicians from a wealth of genres, family entertainment, contemporary dance, several first-time holiday concerts, and more!”

The 2019-20 line-up includes artists and performers that truly showcase the wealth of talent in this country, including Basia Bulat, Crash Test Dummies, and Steven Page, as well as local award-winning performers, The East Pointers, Catherine MacLellan, and Andrew Waite.

“Because LIVE is not a long run of single shows, a great variety can be enjoyed. So, take a chance on something new this season–there’s so much to explore!” adds Campbell.

As part of their new album launch, long-time Island rock icons, Paper Lions present a thrilling ‘Super Show’ on Saturday, October 19, using all the bells and whistles of the Homburg Theatre and welcoming a line-up of special guests and local musicians.

Calgary-based dance company, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks makes their long-awaited return November 6 with Juliet & Romeo. The company’s high-energy, unique jazz style has caused people to describe their work as “music for the eyes.”

Two Canadian country music superstars come together to celebrate the holidays with an acoustic collaboration: The 12 Days of Christmas Tour. Multiple CCMA Award-winning artists George Canyon and Aaron Pritchett have teamed up to share  a night of stories, songs, and family-friendly comedy.

Other special holiday programming includes Sing Noël and Handel’s Messiah from the Choral Music programme; Christmas with Matt Andersen & Friends on December 19; and Fortunate Ones Christmas on December 22.

On January 18, Barenaked Ladies (BNL) co-founder and Canadian icon Steven Page brings an arsenal of songs from his 30-year catalogue for a special concert featuring the lush accompaniment of the P.E.I. Symphony Orchestra.

More information and the full line-up of performers can be found online. Tickets for all performances are now on sale and can be purchased at the Confederation Centre Box Office or online. Confederation Centre wishes to acknowledge the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their continued support.

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:
