The start of June means the start of the summer season at Harbourfront Theatre. The Summerside theatre has shows year-round, and for 2019, their summer season runs from June through September.

“This summer, we have East Coast talent galore,” remarks Kieran Keller, Harbourfront’s Executive Director. “We’re proud to present an array of artists with East Coast roots like Matt Andersen, Natalie MacMaster and her family, Fiddlers’ Sons & The Ellis Family Band, and more, and we’re thrilled to have Lennie Gallant returning with his hit production Searching for Abegweit.

The Harbourfront summer season begins with Newfoundland folk band Shanneyganock on June 1, followed by Chad Matthews bringing his sold out “Tribute to Stompin’ Tom Connors” show to the stage on June 8.

Dance Virtuosa returns to Harbourfront on June 15 and 16 with their students’ spring showcase entitled GIANT; and on June 19 VaughnCo Entertainment presents “The Beach Bums: The Ultimate Tribute to the Beach Boys.”

Harbourfront Theatre presents Matt Andersen & The Mellotones with guest Bobby Bazini on June 20 for Andersen’s Halfway Home Tour celebrating his latest album. The tour’s Summerside date is the only Island stop, and the Harbourfront performance is practically sold out. The theatre encourages people to contact their Box Office at 888-2500 to add their names to a waitlist for the show.
