We are sending all our love and thoughts out to all the community across PEI, and hope you are safe.
An important update:
– Our in-person/telephone box office will be closed today and tomorrow (Mon 26/Tue 27). Online booking is still operating as normal at www.harbourfronttheatre.com
– Our events this week, A tribute to Elton John & Ed Sheeran (Thu 29 Sept) & Hotel California: The Original Eagles Tribute (Sun 2 Oct) are still going ahead as planned, for now. Please keep an eye on our social feeds/website for any further updates.
Everyone here at Watermark Theatre sends our best wishes to all of those who have been affected by hurricane Fiona. It will take time to clean up, to repair the damage, in some cases repair lives, and for all of us to recover from the shock of it all. The resilience of Islanders, and seeing neighbours helping each other out, has already been inspirational, and we know this will continue in the weeks and months to come.
Our production of Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story was to begin performances on Wednesday. Like almost everyone on the Island, we do not have power and will not be able to go ahead as planned. Without knowing when power will be restored, when roads will be cleared, and when life will return back to a semblance of normalcy, we have decided to postpone the production to later this Fall.
The new dates of Beneath Springhill will be announced very soon. We are really looking forward to presenting this wonderful play about the “singing miner” who survived a disaster of his own with resilience, compassion, and through the power of music helped his fellow miners survive.
For those who had tickets booked, we will be contacting you in the next week or two about rebooking for another date. If you are unavailable at that time you may save the credit for a later production, get a refund, or we will forward the cost of your ticket as a donation to the Red Cross’s Hurricane Fiona in Canada Appeal.
If you have any questions please contact us by email at email@example.com call 902-963-3963 We realize that not everyone has power at the moment so please help us in passing the message along so that ticket holders are aware of these changes.
My best wishes to you and yours. Robert Tsonos Artistic Director Watermark Theatre
Confederation Centre of the Arts is monitoring Hurricane Fiona, which is anticipated to hit Prince Edward Island on Saturday. A decision about Saturday programming, including dance umbrella classes and performances of Tell Tale Harbour, will be made on the day.
Patrons with tickets to a Saturday performance of Tell Tale Harbour can pre-emptively move their tickets (free of charge) to tonight (Wednesday), Thursday, or Friday, or receive a credit on their account. If Saturday performances must be cancelled, patrons can receive a full refund, credit on their account, or make a donation to the Centre in the amount of their tickets.
Our box office will make direct contact with patrons who are affected by cancellations. Stay tuned, folks!
