Due to Circumstances

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Confederation Centre of the Arts announced today that the Young Company’s production of The Rising, which was to premiere on Friday, July 9 has been cancelled. It will be replaced by a new production to be announced later this month.

“It’s really an unfortunate situation, but we are moving forward, we are working on a replacement production now and we hope to announce those details soon,” says Confederation Centre of the Arts CEO Steve Bellamy.

Guild Closes For the Day

PEI Arts Guild administration offices, box office, & gallery will be closed July 1, 202. As a community we continue to mourn with The Indigenous communities, and our country. This July 1st, The Guild will pause in solidarity & reflection. We encourage everyone to view this time as a critical point in our history, and a time to reflect — as individuals, a community, and a nation — on our past and the course we can set for a better future.

Young Company Returns

The Young Company Returns with ‘THE RISING!’

-After a 2020 hiatus, ‘YoCo’ returns with energetic and optimistic look at protest music-

There are certain hallmarks of a Charlottetown summer: Victoria Row filling up on a sunny day; running into old friends during Old Home Week; and the sights and sounds of the Young Company in the outdoor amphitheatre. After a year’s absence due to the pandemic, the ‘YoCo’ returns to Confederation Centre of the Arts.

Presented in partnership with TD Ready Commitment., the Confederation Centre Young Company is debuting an all new show this year—THE RISING! Created by Herbie Barnes, Adam Brazier, Bob Foster and Germaine Konji, this free outdoor production is an explosive and optimistic experience exploring protest music and moments in time where society stood up for civil and judicial rights.
