“Port Hope’s Capitol Theatre is one of Canada’s last remaining atmospheric theatres. The historically protected building is styled to feel like the courtyard of a Nordic castle complete with twinkling “stars” overhead. The heritage designation means the theatre has had to become innovative with their technical strategies in order to produce large-scale musicals. Technologies such as digital projection allow them to produce shows such as “Singin’ in the Rain!” and “Mamma Mia!”.”
“Singin’ In The Rain”
