The Capitol Theatre wishes to thank all of
our generous sponsors who make the Festival
of Lights & Trees possible year after year.

We are thrilled to announce that the Capitol Theatre has partnered with Port Hope’s favourite roastery, Happenstance, to bring you CAPITOL CAFE! The Cafe will be serving delicious drinks, scrumptious snacks and grab and go gifts during The Festival of Lights and Trees. But that’s not all! Capitol Cafe will have items for purchase for our Panto audiences at the concession stand.

The Capitol Cafe will be open during the Festival of Lights and Trees viewing times.

Taking the next step towards an evergreen future

In 2021, the Capitol Theatre began a journey towards a greener future by partnering with Carbonzero, a North American industry leader in greenhouse gas measurement, reduction, and offsetting solutions to calculate the carbon footprint of the Festival of Lights and Trees.

As a result, we have decided to extend the life of the trees and lessen the festival’s overall impact on our environment by storing and reusing the artificial trees after the festival. This means that, moving forward, the lucky tree winners will take home all of the beautiful decorations displayed on the trees.

We thank you in advance for supporting this progression and assisting in the Capitol’s efforts to live a more evergreen existence.


All raffle winners will receive a 2023 Summer Stage Subscription -$160 Value!

Each subscription includes 1 (one) ticket to each of the 4 (four) performances; Shirley Valentine, The Ballad of Stompin’ Tom, Prairie Nurse, and Little Shop of Horrors.
