August already! Summer seems to be passing us by at a rapid
pace. Thankfully we have a long weekend to make the most of the summer days we
have left and that includes Summer in the Park. This Friday, August 4 you can
join us downtown by the Discovery North Bay Museum for Grooove, Michelle
Treacy, MAGIC!, and Headliner Marianas Trench. On Saturday, August 5, The
Twentiest and the Darenots will start things off followed by the Headstones and
then Headliner Amanda Marshall. Concerts start at 7:00 p.m. with headlining
acts taking the stage at 9:30 p.m. VIP passes are for sale at the Capitol
Centre Box Office. Wristbands give you access to both Friday and Saturday night
concerts and can also be purchased at the Capitol Centre Box Office – visit us
today or call 705-474-4747. Just a reminder, our Box Office will be moving
downtown to be close to the action should you want that last minute wristband –
they can be found at the main gates to the festival grounds near the museum on
Friday from 3-10 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This week wraps up Theatre Camp but next week brings in TOROS – Theatre Out-Reach On Stage! TOROS has worked all summer on their production of “Big Fish” and now is your chance to see that hard work in action. Big Fish revolves around the relationship between Edward Bloom, a travelling salesman, and his adult son Will, who looks for what is behind his father’s tall stories. Performances are taking place at the Capitol Centre starting Wednesday, August 9th
through Saturday, August 12 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by visiting
the Box Office Monday-Friday between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. or by calling

The Capitol Centre is looking for volunteers to join the
Organizing Committee for the 21st Annual Hops & Vines Gala and we want YOU! A meeting will be taking place on Wednesday, August 2 @ 5:30 at the Capitol Centre. There will be wine and cheese to ensure we are in the right mindset as we plan for another fantastic event. We hope you and any friends can join us and be a part of this highly anticipated event! Call Cindy at 705-474-1944 x250 for more information.
Also happening next week on August 2 @ 2:00 p.m., is our last free movie of the summer. In SING, Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Admission is free although we are accepting donations to the North Bay Food Bank. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Theatre Camp has one final week before we close the books on another summer here at the Capitol Centre. Next week’s theme is On Broadway and campers will spend the week prepping for a Musical Performance on Thursday evening of near-Broadway calibre! They will work on stage voices and singing workshops, costume design, and hair and makeup. Its an opportunity to really get a feel for the world of theatre in a fun-filled, educational setting!
And last but not least, be sure to look for us at this week’s Farmer’s Market on July 29. We will be in the DIA Booth with lots of information on our upcoming season, Hops & Vines Gala, BluesFest and much more! We hope you pop by to say hi!
