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.

Have you ever had one of those moments when you think, “Whoa now, wait a sec, this is an amazing story!”? Yeah. Me too. In fact, I have them everyday. Always have. And I’ve always felt the need to share them, which is why I went to journalism school, specialized in magazines and then expanded my career to include digital media, marketing and content creation. For over two decades I’ve worked in every facet of the communications industry and in that time I’ve come to appreciate there are fascinating tales in everything we do. Although I tend to be drawn to the more adventurous side of life, whether it’s rock climbing in Oman or BASE jumping in Idaho, I also realize that good story telling transforms everything from press releases and advertising campaigns to website content and social media posts. There’s a reason my company is called Wonow, aka “Whoa now!” So what’s your story?
