A Message to our Community
July 10th, 2020
The Capitol Theatre continues to place the highest priority on the health and safety of our cherished Capitol family – artists, volunteers, staff, and patrons.
The past couple of months has been a trying time for many affected by the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus. At the Capitol Theatre, the management, staff, and dedicated board of directors have been working tirelessly to navigate the unknowns and to formulate plans ensuring the theatre’s survival through these unprecedented times.
With so many questions still left unanswered, it is with great sadness that we announce a further suspension of live mainstage theatre and concert performances through the 2020 calendar year.
Every effort is being made to reschedule the affected performances and we remain very optimistic in our plans to announce programming and scheduling for the 2021 season in the coming months. At this time, future dates have not yet been confirmed.
As the impacts of COVID-19 on the theatre become clearer, we ask ticket holders to consider supporting the theatre’s sustainability and await the results of our efforts to re-schedule performances. Please visit the performance update page of our website for specifics on performances and alternative options to a refund.
We thank you in advance for your consideration and support as we shift our focus on what’s next, in our immediate future.
Our future is ultimately live performance and we assure you that as soon it is safe, we will be back on stage. Unfortunately, current circumstances are making that challenging so we are creating alternate ways to stay connected with inspiring online and virtual content in celebration of our creative community with Capitol Connects.
Next Up, we are partnering with talented actors and musicians to create innovative ways to invite youth and adults in through educational workshops and classes.
AND….On August 15, 1930, the Capitol Theatre opened its doors for the first time. That’s right, next month the Capitol turns 90! We are busy planning how we can celebrate this landmark anniversary. Stay tuned.
Although timelines for reopening our doors is still uncertain, rest assured, the Capitol Theatre will be back with great entertainment and our programming will be stronger than ever!
We remain grateful to those who have taken the time to reach out offering genuine words of encouragement and support during these unprecedented times including those who have placed a special message on the Capitol Theatre’s iconic marquee through the Your Name In Lights campaign, those who have joined the Capitol Theatre’s Membership and to those who have generously provided a much-needed Donation in support of the future Capitol Experience!
The Capitol Theatre family realizes that we are all affected by the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus and we want to offer our best wishes for the continued good health of you and your family.
We look forward to returning to the stage, after this now extended intermission.
Stay Safe & Healthy
Susan & Erin
