Owner description: 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!”. The Capitol has become a “must-see” Ontario destination that has partnerships with local restaurants, cafes, merchants, accommodations and more to offer a complete “experience” to our guests.

We went to see a Christmas panto and it was our first time at the Capitol Theatre. While Port Hope has many wonderful attractions this must be the jewel. Beautifully restored and not a bad seat in the house.

The theatre has some fantastic shows there! It's a little quaint theatre! You must visit the town of Port Hope. It's a beautiful historical area on the ganaraska river!

We have been to four musicals over the last years and every one of them was fantastic! It's an historic theatre, and the ambiance is wonderful. The singing was top notch, the choreography truly professional and the staging excellent.
I would highly recommend this theatre and for any musical production, they match any big city performance!

We went to see the "Naughty "Panto Snow White in December. We were a group of 7 between 23 and 57 years of age. We all loved this show. This is the third Panto we have been to at the Capital Theatre and we have loved them all.
There is not a bad seat in the house.
It is nice that you can get a beverage either alcoholic or not before the show and also during intermission.
One thing I will suggest is if you know you want a drink during intermission buy the tickets before the show as then you only have ever to get into 1 line during intermission

It's a great little theatre, one of the few remaining 'atmospheric' theaters in North America. Good sized stage, very good sound system and projection effects. We go every year for the Christmas pantomime. This year we saw the adult or 'naughty' version Snow White panto, it was excellent, very funny and entertaining.
