Booking and Rental Information

FSPH4The Florence Simmons Performance Hall, located in the Charlottetown Centre on Holland College’s Prince of Wales Campus, is the newest, and yet one of the most historical, venues in Prince Edward Island.

Once the hub of activity for the Prince of Wales College and the community, the performance hall has been extensively renovated and updated.  Honoring the integrity of the building’s 1932 art deco beginnings while incorporating state-of-the-art technology, the hall provides audiences with the ultimate, intimate performance experience. In addition to being the ideal location for soft-seaters, the hall provides a perfect venue for speaking engagements and business presentations.

The performance hall features a large lobby and box office. The lobby is the ideal place to host a reception prior to a performance.

A 2,100 sq.-ft. lounge inside the theatre is suitable for entertaining up to 150 people prior to a performance.

The 303-seat performance space features an 850 sq.-ft. stage. The room offers access to the seating from the top and bottom of the room and is wheelchair accessible.

The overall depth of the stage is 28 feet from the front of the stage to the back wall. The stage is 35 ft. wide, with a proscenium opening of 30 ft. 6 in. The performance hall also has a sprung dance floor and, coming in the fall of 2017, a black Rosco Adagio dance floor which can be installed free of charge.

To book the performance hall, or for more information, email onstage@hollandcollege.com or call  (902) 894 6885.
