Many awesome Television series are filmed in Halifax every year.  But most are closed sets, not open for the public to partake and understandably so. The Candy Show is a National Television series that does not go by the standard rules. In fact, filming a large portion of the hit National TV series is done in front of a live studio audience. This variety TV show is just that, a Variety TV show.  Hosted by Creator/ Writer/ Comedian Candy Palmater each episode begins with Comedy monologue plus a Music Guest and a Performing Artist.

The day time filming is a closed set, however, in the evening we open the doors to those who are 19+ and invite you into the house.  Door time is 6:10 – 6:50 pm so you MUST be in the door to the studio during this time to ensure you get a spot in the audience.  FOR TICKETS CLICK HERE.  We film 2 episodes each night except for Wednesday April 30th where we film only one.  13 episodes, 26 guests, 7 nights of taping.  Ticket price is ONE non-perishable food item for Feed NS bins that are on site.  Bring the food with you please.
