The Centre for All Canadians

Pay What You Will to see a show-stopping performance

PSS…PSS is coming to the Centre

Charlottetown (P.E.I) – LIVE @the Centre is taking a new approach to ticket pricing with a Pay What You Will (PWYW) offer to see Compagnia Baccalà’s  PSS…PSS on March 21 at 6:00 p.m. in the Homburg Theatre. This is the only stop in the Maritimes for the duo on their Canadian tour.

“With PWYW theatre-goers of all walks of life can pay a price that is both fair and affordable,” says Darcy Campbell, Director for LIVE @the Centre. He goes on to explain, “By offering these special performances at a price our patrons set for themselves, we are hoping to reach new audiences.”

On the night of the show, patrons will receive an envelope to insert cash or use the slip inside to pay by credit card. Patrons are then asked to drop their envelopes in the bin located in the lobby, or hand them to staff who will be collecting them in baskets.

Inspired by Chaplin, Keaton and the stars of silent films, this Swiss, two-man team gives a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression. Inventive, exciting, ridiculous, this breathtaking show of mishaps and acrobatics entitled PSS…PSS will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. Winner of 15 international prizes, including the Cirque Du Soleil prize, PSS…PSS is brilliant, tender, hilarious and ingenious, and unlike anything you have ever seen.

Contact the Centre’s box office at (902) 566-1267, toll free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at confederationcentre.com to book tickets.

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:
