Every show we have seen has been dynamic and fantastic. I've gone to things I never thought would be so good and Had the best time. I love this theatre.

I have been to the Capitol Center many times, but most often for a Nut Cracker ballet performance put on by the St. Paul's school during Christmas time. Although it has become a tradition, the talent of course relies on the crop of students. If you were going to to to the Capitol Center then I would highly recommend one... More

The stage can be viewed basically from everywhere. It's a smaller venue, but decent. There is always something going on here. If you haven't been here before, and your looking for something different to do, then this would be worth a visit.

Great venue in downtown Concord for many types of performing arts, from visiting musical acts, dance, Metropolitan Opera video productions, to locally produced shows.

The seating view is good from almost everywhere as it is a small theatre. It is wheelchair accessible. The architecture is interesting and when they were renovating they left small areas of the original work for the audience to compare. Wish the seating was a tad more spacious and comfortable, but it is ok.

This is a nice, old theater and every seat has a good view. The seats are old, and it gets a little crowded if there are larger folks next to you. This is a great place to see a stand up routine or a play, or music.

Went here to see the touring Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast. I was very impressed with the architecture, layout, and acoustics of this theater. Also very impressed with the caliber of shows they are able to attract to such a small theater. We really enjoyed this venue, and we hope to return.

I attended the Governor's Council on Tourism this April and part of the conference included a tour and "taste of Concord" event at the Capitol Center for the Arts. The auditorium has been lovingly restored by volunteers who hand-painted every embellishment and decoration. The best modern accommodations possible have been added so there is excellent handicap access. I was amazed... More

We have seen Mary Chapin Carpenter at the CCA twice. It is a lovely old historic theater that has been lovingly restored. It is conveniently located in Downtown Concord. Parking is an issue - it is on-street or down the hill at the mall. Arrive early to get a good parking spot.

No parking which is a huge issue - you either park on the street or drive around and try to find a parking lot! Nice, clean theater.
