The Dream Catchers is a Canada150 Signature project, featuring the TD Confederation Centre Young Company running Monday to Saturday a noon until August 19.

The show explores the dreams of young Canadians through a lens of reconciliation, inclusion, and the environment. The musical features brand new original works from Canadian artists Paper Lions, City Natives, Fred Penner, Emm Gryner, Kinnie Starr, Khodi Dill, Nikki Payne, Carmen Braden, Tiny Emperor, Daniel Maté, Riley Simpson-Fowler, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Caroline Savoie, and Twin Flames.

The musical opened on National Aboriginal Day, June 21, in the Outdoor Amphitheatre at Confederation Centre. At the exact same time, a second touring company opened The Dream Catchers at the Museum of Canadian History in Ottawa. The two companies will both spend time touring the nation and performing in Charlottetown this summer.

The original project idea is based on a concept by Yvonne Mosley.
