Cabaret Theatre
  • The Cabaret Theatre, home to The Capital University Theatre, is a modified black box space located in the basement of the Harry C. Moores Campus Center. With flexible seating and staging (thrust, arena, proscenium, and environmental), the theater is capable of seating up to 120 a performance. The theater is equipped with a scene shop, a control booth, and a production design office. These facilities combine to provide students, faculty, and the Capital community the opportunity to collaborate on a variety of theatrical productions including musicals, Shakespeare, contemporary drama, and premieres of original works. Auditions and participation in theatre activities at Capital are open to the entire university community. We produce four main stage shows a season in the Cabaret Theatre.

    Any student involved in our production program can earn academic credit (TH 100/300) through the pre-professional activity program. Work study positions (for those who qualify) are also available for students involved in the technical and managerial aspects of our season.
