TV Show filming in Halifax HOTTEST event of the year

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.

There is a bar and merchandise on site, so bring cash.  During the break , we feed our audience some sandwiches – free.
