In 2024, we’re celebrating community at the Capitol. Each of our offerings onstage celebrate that wonderful spark that can happen when people come together to make something better. And that exact spark is what we love about making theatre – creating opportunities for the folks in our community (and beyond) to have a shared artistic experience.

Behind the Scenes

Throughout the season, we'll be offering backstage tours, artist talks, design presentations, and other events to get you behind the scenes at the Capitol. These events are free for subscribers but available for everyone! If you've ever wanted to learn more about professional theatre, we're creating opportunities for you in 2024.

Pay-What-You-Can Previews

We're offering PWYC pricing for our preview performances to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to attend live, professional theatre in their community. Audiences on Preview Nights get the first look at each production and help the artists learn about audience reactions. And with the PWYC option, there's no reason to miss a show at the Capitol – no matter your budget!

Talk Back Thursdays

If you want to hear from the actors themselves, we're hosting Talk Backs after every Thursday night performance. Stick around after the show for a free Q&A with the artists involved and find out more about the process of making live theatre.

New Show Times

All evening performances start at 7:30pm to make things more accessible for those who don't love a late night out. So whether you're feeling like a post-show drink or an early bedtime, the Capitol has you covered.


A Year with Frog and Toad

The beloved book series comes to life on stage – and it's fun for the whole family!

Based on Arnold Lobel’s beloved books, this whimsical show chronicles the story of two friends – the very chipper Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through four fun-filled seasons. Alongside the other animals of the forest, they plant gardens, go swimming, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. It’s a show for both the young and the young at heart!

Part vaudeville, part make-believe, and all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures through the seasons.

Poster for "Bed & Breakfast" at the Capitol Theatre

Bed & Breakfast

A small-town comedy about finding a place to call home.

Brett and Drew want to move out of their tiny downtown condo and into a house, but they just lost their seventh bidding war in Toronto. When Brett’s beloved Aunt Maggie dies in a nearby small town, the couple decides to make the move and start up a B&B out of her historic home. But when they face friction in their new community, the two discover that the simple life is more complicated than they thought.

With dozens of characters all portrayed by two actors, Bed & Breakfast is a theatrical tour-de-force and a riotously funny comedy that will leave you laughing all the way home.

The Full Monty

A raucous, pop-rock-musical that takes it all off!

While spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo come up with a bold (and unclothed) way to make some quick cash. In preparing for the show, they find themselves extremely exposed, both physically and emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness, and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to let it all go.

Based on the cult hit film, The Full Monty is filled with razor-sharp humour, toe-tapping pizzazz, and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show!

Poster for "Christmastown" at the Capitol Theatre


A world premiere farce about making magic all year long

Kringle, Ontario is in a rut. When the well-meaning Town Reeve devises a tourism development plan to celebrate Christmas all year round, the town thinks it’s a great idea. But two weeks and a heat wave later, they’re having second thoughts. Nora, whose convenience store (and gas station) is the centre of cultural activity, is suddenly desperate for a much-needed vacation. Throw in an anxious restauranteur, a sassy teenager, and a wide-eyed new resident, and you’ve got a recipe for a veritable blizzard of hilarity!

This world premiere Canadian comedy chronicles the holiday magic of small-town living – all while sweating in Santa suits in August!

Rapunzel - A Merry (Hairy) Holiday Panto

A twisted take on the story of some very very long hair

Rapunzel is bored and lonely, with her lengthy braid as her only potential for escape. When a dim-witted prince accidentally discovers her plight, it sets in motion a string of events that will unravel the original story in surprising and wonderful ways. In this wildly funny reimagining of the traditional tale, Rapunzel comes to discover the power within – all set to a score of popular songs and beloved panto traditions.

Written by Second City Creative Director, Carly Heffernan, this world premiere panto will take our celebrated holiday tradition to new heights!
