The Capitol Centre has launched its 2021 Fall Season of entertainment, and there are 15 performances scheduled between October and December in the Betty Speers Theatre, along with six exhibitions and events at the WKP Kennedy Gallery

Last year the Capitol Centre managed to schedule a handful of small shows in time for Christmas before the third wave of COVID-19 forced a long winter lockdown. Therefore this new 2021 Fall Season is the first season of shows to be introduced since before the pandemic.

“It’s so good to be in a position now where we can open to the public and safely offer live performances.” says Dan Misturada, Interim Executive Director. “We’ve heard from the public often about how much they miss live performances as part of their norm. Our fall season features a really cool variety of smaller shows that best accommodate our current capacity restrictions.”

The season kicks off with the comedy of Canada’s own Sean Cullen, improv master and accomplished impressionist. Musical performances range from Susan Aglukark and Steven Page to David Wilcox, newcomer AHI, The Guess Who’s former lead singer Carl Dixon, and the Hogtown Brass. Theatrical productions range from comedies to historic storytelling and a Christmas Carol. The Ballet, Rocky Horror, 22 Wing Band and the Capitol Centre’s Annual Charity Gala featuring Jim Witter balance out the season.

The Capitol Centre has extensive COVID-19 protocols in place for staff, volunteers, patrons and performers. You will also need proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry to events for all patrons 12 and older. Current protocols require a printed or digital copy of second vaccination receipts to gain entry to events. You will also need to show a valid ID along with your proof of vaccination.

Mask-wearing is required when patrons are not in their seats.
