The Centre for All Canadians

Each summer, the Centre presents The Charlottetown Festival – the largest musical theatre festival in Atlantic Canada since 1965. The Festival is dedicated to creating new Canadian works and bolstering our nation’s vibrant musical theatre scene. Featuring the finest performers, designers, writers, and musicians, the professional theatre celebrates Canadian stories by exploring our origins, ideals, and ongoing evolution. The Festival has created more than 80 original musicals in its history, including celebrated works like Evangeline, Emily, A Misfortune, Stories from the Red-Dirt Road, Come-All-Ye, Searching for Abegweit: The Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant, Les Feux Follets, Kronborg 1582, and of course, Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™. ANNE™ has been presented every summer since 1965, holding the Guinness Record for longest-running annual musical in the world.

Sing! Gasp! Shout! Laugh! Feel it all at the 2023 Charlottetown Festival. This year’s Festival is full of stories of resilience, inspiration, empowerment, and lots of laughter, with a new Canadian musical, a hilarious whodunit, iconic songs from legendary women and country music’s legendary pair, and high energy family shows. Confederation Centre presents the playbill for The 2022 Charlottetown Festival.

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.
