August 30, 2022 – Several famous faces will be hitting the stage at Confederation Centre of the Arts this fall and winter. The Centre announced the 2022-2023 lineup for LIVE @ the Centre, which features award-winning musicians, street-dancing, comedy, and more.

Serena Ryder

The program kicks off with internationally acclaimed musician Ron Sexsmith, and includes platinum-selling artist Serena Ryder, singer-songwriter William Prince, and reggae royalty Jah’Mila.

P.E.I.’s Lennie Gallant will also return with his long-awaited Christmas show. “The Innkeeper’s Christmas was scheduled for last year, but had to be cancelled due to COVID,” says Darcy Campbell, director of LIVE @ the Centre. “We are long overdue for some holiday cheer.”

Other Atlantic Canadians hitting the stage this season include The Ennis Sisters with their Christmas show, a bilingual show from Island artist Josée Boudreau, folk musician Ian Sherwood, and Kitbag Theatre’s production of The Songs of Johnny and June, starring Jacob Hemphill and Melissa MacKenzie.

Beyond music, LIVE @ the Centre will also feature award-winning street-dance company Bboyizm, Yuk’s Yuk’s Comedy, and Hyprov: Improv Under Hypnosis, an entirely unique show co-starring comedy legend Colin Mochrie.

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.
