Imagine if you could: Win the lottery; Travel to your perfect place in the blink of an eye; Own your dream car; Turn back the hands of time; Reunite with a lost loved one. It all becomes a reality. Every night. True to its title, “Grand Illusion” is the logical evolution of this conjurer’s art.

Meet the Mentor
by Nina Linton

In the bowels of the old Charlottetown YMCA, six staggered figures stalk the lacquered floor, their bare feet loosely dragging across its wooden planks.

Anne and Diana form off-stage friendship

Amy Wallis and Alanna Chisholm play two of PEI’s most famous friends on stage at The Charlottetown Festival, but few people recognize them on the street.

Tuesdays with Morrie

An old man. A young man. And life’s greatest lesson. These words aptly describe the play, Tuesdays with Morrie. Written for the stage by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, and based on Albom’s best selling book of the same name, Tuesdays With Morrie is a life-affirming feast for the heart and soul.
