About
The Cameco Capitol Arts Centre is a professional regional theatre located 1-hour east of Downtown Toronto where you will experience top quality productions and concerts in the historic and picturesque small town of Port Hope. Since 2013, under Artistic Director & General Manager Antonio Sarmiento the Capitol has won awards and recognition for embracing its historical status AND using innovative technologies in visual effects to create an enhanced live experience. Recent critically acclaimed stage productions utilizing these technologies include productions of “Disney’s Mary Poppins” and “Singin’ In The Rain”, “SNARL’D! The Rapunzel Panto” and our highly anticipated productions of “On Golden Pond”, “Crazy For You” and the global sensation “Mamma Mia!”.

We have been to this theatre many times and its always delightful. The venue is charming and although they don't have a live orchestra the music is so good you forget that its electronic. We are always amazed at how the actors provide a wonderful musical under the circumstances.

Lovely theatre right in downtown Port Hope. Parking is a little tricky, but there is parking near their municipal offices further south. Great atmospheric theatre with good amenities such as lounge area for snacks and clean washroom facilities. We have seen two productions so far - a Patsy Cline tribute and a comedy, Stag and Doe. We enjoyed the comedy more (stronger actors), but definitely an enjoyable outing both times!

The Capitol Theatre is a gem of a theatre. Have been attending productions of the summer season for many years, and have never been disappointed. The actors are consummate professionals. The volunteers work tirelessly and never fail to be courteous and friendly. The theatre is so pretty and very comfortable. Refreshments are available for purchase. Popcorn and a drink, anyone? Book your tickets now, you will be hooked!

We saw Simply Queen, a couple of months after seeing The Million Dollar Quartet. Not a bad seat in the house! Acoustics are good. Prices are reasonable. Share in the 50-50 to support this local theatre.

Since we found this theatre we have kept comming back to catch at least two different performance yearly. We have attended the past 2 production of their Panto productions, Robin Hood and King Arthur. This time we came to see Cinderella the Naughty and we learned that the previous Art Director had resigned. This production barring one scene in the second act we found that teenagers would have been quite comfortable watching this performance. More sweet than naughty compared to the past two years. The actors all had
tremendous voices and once again this theatre is worth the visit. Just wished the previous Artistic Directors was still here as we have seen some excellent shows, Singing in the Rain (outstanding) Fiddler on the Roof and Steel Magnolias to mention just a few.

We went as a work group and saw the naughty king Arthur play and we had a blast. The theatre itself is quaint and cute and full of character. The play was also VERY funny! The concession stand was even selling adult beverages and that was a plus. Worth a visit.

We were there to see Million Dollar Quartet. The show was not what we were expecting but a pleasant surprise. More of a story than a concert but packed full of interesting bits of information.
The seats in theatre are pretty comfortable, interesting little bar. Would be nice if there were more snack options.
