Theatre Art Gallery in Charlottetown affords the arts community opportunities that most large cities do not offer. Unusual structure with some hidden gems.

The Confederation Centre is a theatre gem in Eastern Canada. The musical Anne of Green Gables has placed here annually for over forty years and plays to a full house. There is not a bad production in this Arts Centre. It is worth the visit.

My daughter and I️ sure enjoyed our time at the art gallery. The lady that works there is beyond knowledgeable and friendly. A taste of history as we got to see the original transcript of Anne of Green Gables. Special temperature control.

I don't think I was in Charlottetown long enough (2 days) to enjoy all the art centre had to offer. Mostly the museum, which I found lacking.

We found parking on the street but I'd get there early to find a spot. I'm not sure about the tag.

really no bad seats. It is a very nice theater with recently updated seating. towards the middle is always preferrable and I prefer the lower level over the balcony.
