There’s entertainment for all ages this holiday season at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Hope. Each December, the Capitol opens its doors to the community for live theatre, music, and a decades-old and beloved tradition: the Festival of Lights and Trees.

JACK – A BEANSTALK PANTO

THEATRE FOR THE NAUGHTY… & NICE! Until December 23.

Each year the Capitol Theatre commissions an annual holiday panto, and this year it’s Jack – A Beanstalk Panto (currently playing to rave reviews) with both naughty and nice versions. Written and directed by award-winning star of stage and screen, Rebecca Northan, it’s magic, murder, and mayhem with a hearty dash of holiday cheer.  Jack – A Beanstalk Panto stars Christy Bruce, Paul Constable, Robbie Fenton, Madison Hayes-Crook, Clea McCaffrey, Zoë O’Connor, Hal Wesley Rogers and Steve Ross. It’s a can’t-miss holiday theatre offering. 

“Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, The Capitol Theatre in Port Hope has just the Panto for you! Truly is fun for the whole family.” – A View from the Box

“A fantastic show with so many laughs.” – Ontario Visited
