First time at this small theatre but it won't be the last..... thoroughly enjoyed the play. very professional...staff are very helpful and courteous. Has a confectionary counter with very good prices....... really enjoyed ourselves.... it actually rained on the stage. Free parking and the price for a front row seat was 35.00 ..... goodbye Toronto theatre.

Went last night to see singing in the rain. What a wonderful production! Small town Port Hope and the performers were excellent. It literally rained in the production. Music, dancing and performers sure made for a delightful evening.

Went to Capitol Theatre today to sea Singing In The Rain, what an excellent way to spend the afternoon! The performances were all wonderful, very professional, and the atmosphere of the theatre amplified the setting of the times when movies went from from silent to talking...well worth seeing!!

It was raining in the Capitol Theatre; literally !!!! The vocals were extrordinary, tap dancing spot on, and numerous costumes a visual delight. Outstanding in every way!

The venue is awesome to attend. Seats are comfortable and the acoustic lives up the the billing. Was center stage row two and the sound was amazing. Jimmy Bowskill opened and put on a pure blues music show. If you have never seen or heard this musician put it on your bucket list. Jimmy gave us some perfect south Texas... More
