The Capitol Theatre is one of the most successful and best managed theatres in all of Canada. We produce and stage a wide spectrum of programming from TIFF films, live theatre original productions, music/variety, children’s programming and a host of special events.
We raise approximately 55% of our annual operating budget from our box office receipts which is one of the highest in Canada. However, we rely on our donors to help accomplish everything we do. Please donate to the Capitol — every dollar helps us bring you more of our innovative programs, offer more shows and bigger acts. You also help make theatre more financially accessible for school and community groups.
Just as importantly, when you help us thrive, you are helping Port Hope and the region. Our success helps boost the local economy — specifically local businesses such as restaurants, shops and accommodation providers. In turn, those businesses employ people in the area and inject more money into the community. If you love Port Hope, we invite you to be part of its success.
We are a Registered Charitable Non-Profit Organization which means your gift qualifies for a tax credit. A charitable tax receipt will be sent to you promptly upon completion of your donation.
As a patron of the Capitol, you will be rewarded with a range of membership benefits which is simply our way of saying thank you for your gift.
