All Local Young Company to perform Munschables at The Charlottetown Festival

April 12, 2023 – Family-friendly programming returns to the Outdoor Amphitheatre at Confederation Centre of the Arts this summer.

Back by popular demand, the high-energy show Munschables will bring a selection of stories from beloved children’s author Robert Munsch to life through an interactive and musical performance. Sponsored by TD Ready Commitment, the show will be performed by the Centre’s Young Company – which is made up entirely of local performers this year.

“Prince Edward Island is full of diverse local talent, and we have put together an exceptional group to bring this fun and silly show to life,” says Dawn Dames, the Centre’s associate artistic director. “The Outdoor Amphitheatre has become a summer staple for the community, and I am excited for Islanders to see themselves reflected on stage.” Dames will choreograph the show and co-direct with Adam Brazier, the Centre’s artistic director of performing arts.

The cast of emerging artists includes Rebekah Brown, Isabella Butler, Claire Byrne, Krysten Cameron, Kierrah Celeste, Catherine Cummins, Livia Duncombe, Hayden Lysecki, Katie Shaw, Samel Sunil, and Victoria Turnquest.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary at the Centre this year, the Young Company is a program for emerging performers to hone their skills through performance opportunities and training from top theatre professionals.

“This program is an incredible opportunity for local performers in the early stages of their careers to develop their skills in a professional and supportive setting,” says Brazier. “There is no other program like this on the Island, and we are excited to offer local talent a chance to perform and grow at the Centre.”

Munschables runs on select dates from July 11 – August 25. Admission to these noon hour performances is free, with donations welcome. For full details on The Charlottetown Festival, visit

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.
