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.

Great venue, great music offerings

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.

The Panto is always great!
Dec 2019 • Friends
We come every year for the Panto. The theatre is gorgeous and old in style. Absolutely beautiful. The volunteers who help put have always been polite, friendly and helpful anytime we go.

More saucy than naugty Production
Nov 2019 • Couples
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.

Full of Character
Dec 2018 • Business
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.

Great little theatre
Sep 2019
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.

Just saw the production of Million Dollar Quartet at the Capitol and loved it! Would highly recommend seeing it if you’re in town! The music sounds amazing and the performances are fantastic.

Provincial Theatre ?
Aug 2019
My wife and I have seen many of the plays performed here over the past three years and this was one of the worst .
Why people would give this a standing ovation is truly beyond comprehension.
An usher actually tried to stop us leaving at the end of the show telling us there would be an encore.
We could not leave quickly enough.

Million Dollar Quartet
Aug 2019
Love the Capital theatre. We have attended 75 or 80 shows there over the years, but this one is the second worst show we have ever seen there! If you present a show like this, the Johnny Cash actor should sound at least a little similar to the real thing. Not even close! The same for Elvis and the Killer. Very, very disappointed! More like amateur hour at the Port Hope high school.
