The Capitol Theatre’s calendar is full of community music, dance and theatre as well as Canadian and international touring performances. The restored theatre is an experience in itself, recapturing the atmosphere of its earliest days as a silent movie house.
The Capitol Theatre Society rents the facility to community groups for dance, theatre, music and film events, presents great touring performances, produces Summer Youth Theatre, a wine-tasting festival and an annual Christmas pantomime, and houses a large costume collection.
The Capitol’s Box office does far more than sell event ticket reservations – it is a gold mine for community arts resources, with friendly staff who go more than the distance to assist folks with their entertainment choices. The Capitol Costume shop may be messaged by calling 354-1510 for fantasy dress-up and show needs.
