Every summer we go to Port Hope at least once or twice because of the great time we have at the Capitol Theatre. The shows are excellent and the actors amazing. The building is very nice and all the staff-volunteers very pleasant..

Mama Mia was an extended smash hit; the actors were amazing; Antonio just keeps getting better and better with innovation and technology effects. I love this Theatre more and more every time I go; the atmosphere is relaxing and the setting so realistic.

While in Port Hope we decided to see live theatre and was directed here. We saw the play "The Odd Couple". The theatre is beautiful inside. It looks like your outside on a street with the ceiling sky blue with lights twinkling as stars. The play was fantastic!

The Capitol Theatre never ceases to put on top quality shows, especially over the last few years under the new direction of Antonio Sarmiento. Their shows attract top name performers from Mirvish, Broadway and the West End and it's a real treat to see such a high caliber of performances and production values in a small town on Lake Ontario....

I have seen many productions at this theatre and have fully enjoyed our families experiences. As someone who works in the performing arts industry I can say the productions are top notch and you can not beat the price for professional theatre. It is a beautiful old theatre full of charm and character in the middle of a town that... More

We attended Momma Mia twice! The production was top notch with superb acting and at an affordable price. Just as good or even better than some we have seen in the big cities. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Looking forward to seeing Snow White with the grandchildren.
