Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown is expected to make an announcement in the new year involving changes to the seating configuration of the Homburg Theatre.
The changes are expected to include the creation of a centre aisle. The current configuration utilizes only two aisles, one on each side.
Word of the changes came Tuesday night during a concert by The Barra MacNeils.
A member of the popular Cape Breton Celtic act said it was an historic night because their show was to be the last show before the seating configuration changed.
Centre officials contacted Wednesday declined to comment in any great detail on just what the changes would entail.
A spokesman for the centre said the changes were subject to the approval of government funding. He said centre officials would not comment further.
