The Capitol Theatre is led by Artistic Director Susan Ferley and is utilizing innovative cinematic approaches to live entertainment.  It is one of Canada’s only remaining “atmospheric theatres” and now a nationally designated historical landmark.  Due to limited space backstage, the Capitol uses cutting edge technologies in digital projection to enhance live theatre productions to great success.  The Capitol is also known for it’s proximity to Toronto and the beautiful and historic community.  Coupled with a “Can Do” and positive approach to the process of creating quality shows in a limited space, the Capitol is drawing top talent to its productions both on and off stage.
