Spotlight Series

The Fredericton Playhouse Spotlight Series features professional performances in music, theatre, and dance from a wide range of different genres. Consisting of 24 world-class performers, the 2017-2018 season features some of the most exciting artists touring today, including East Coast favourites, internationally acclaimed ensembles, up-and-coming musicians, innovative dance and circus shows, hilarious comedy performances, inspiring theatre pieces and much more.

In addition to the Spotlight Series, the Playhouse will present a special Canada 150 Performance Series in the fall of 2017. This multidisciplinary series will celebrate the 150th anniversary of confederation, providing audiences the opportunity to connect with our country’s past, celebrate who we are today, and work toward building a legacy for tomorrow. All tickets in the series will cost $18.67, to mark the year of confederation.

The Fredericton Playhouse Spotlight Series includes a special Spotlight Membership program, which is designed to give patrons easier access to the shows they want to see at a discounted price. Member benefits include early access to the best seats in the house, special pricing on all Spotlight Series and all Spotlight Partner performances (Kidstage Series, Theatre New Brunswick, New Brunswick Country Showcase, Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada and Symphony NB).
