The Princess Sheila NaGeira Theatre is a 379 seat, air conditioned and wheelchair accessible facility, set in the heart of the Baccalieu Trail Region. The theatre, which is located in the Conception Bay Regional Community Centre at 256 Water Street in Carbonear, has perhaps one of the most beautiful outdoor settings in the province.
Directly facing the Carbonear harbour, it is adjacent to the extensive George W. Earle Promenade which encircles the Ponds. Since opening in 1998, the Princess Sheila NaGeira Theatre has become the principal centre for the performing arts in Carbonear and many of the surrounding towns. The well designed and attractive theatre is a source of pride for the entire Baccalieu Trail region.
Throughout the year the Princess Sheila NaGeira Theatre hosts live theatrical performances with such popular acts from the world stage as Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers, Isla Grant , Foster & Allen, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann, and Johnny McEvoy, as well as beloved Newfoundland performers, including Rising Tide Theatre, Terry Kelly, the Irish Descendants, and Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers & Bobby Evans. In addition, we have the annual Dancewox recital.
Local aspiring artists perform during the Kiwanis Music Festival in March, School Concerts, and Musical Performances which include local dance recitals.
