The Charlottetown Festival Theatre Conference is being held this week at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
It got underway Tuesday and will feature four packed days of showcases of new Canadian works, breakout sessions, panel discussions and more. It culminates with the world premiere of the new musical, “A Misfortune,” at The Mack.
Bob Martin, who has worked as an actor and writer in theatre, film and television for over 30 years, is the keynote speaker for the conference.
The winners of the 2017 Charlottetown Festival Commission will also be revealed, as they will receive $50,000 in funding to develop new works.
