Hosted by Cameron MacDonald, Heritage Coordinator for Confederation Centre of the Arts and presented in partnership with Immigration and Refugee Services Association PEI, this FREE event discusses immigration and its impact on families - something our new musical, MAGGIE explores. From the social influences that influence the decision to immigrate, to the spectrum of emotions felt by family members leaving and the ones staying behind, many Islanders have experienced the complexities of this life-changing event.
Whether your ancestors arrived from Scotland on theAlexanderin 1772, or you have recently arrived from countries like India, Turkey or Colombia, come share your family’s stories of migration, hope and resilience. Storytelling will be followed by a tea reception with traditional Scottish treats.
Seating is limited so pre-registration is required.

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.
