I have attended many, many wonderful shows at the Capitol Centre over the years, and I sometimes brought my children as well. My stand-out memories are when K.D. Lang performed in 2012 and I remember hoping and praying that she would sing Halleluja by Leonard Cohen… and she did! It was amazing. Also seeing Tommy Hunter was special because I loved him from his TV show when I was growing up. Every single ballet I’ve ever seen at the Capitol Centre was also spectacular! So I don’t have just one favorite memory, I have many, and I know there’ll be more!
I’ve been to many great shows at the Capitol Centre. I’ll always remember Barenaked Ladies - the first show I was responsible for after joining the Capitol Centre team! I love attending TOROS and Dreamcoat productions. However, my first memory of the Capitol Centre is from January 15, 1999 when I saw the Snow Queen. I can vividly recall the costumes and stage props – including the Snow Queen’s carriage moving across the stage! My daughter is one and has already been to 3 Capitol Centre shows, her first being the Banff Film Festival last January – she was 2 weeks old!
I have to say, my favourite time at the Capitol Centre was seeing TartanTerrors. We put a lot of trust into going to a show we knew nothing about and we weren't disappointed one bit! It had everything! Dancing, singing, comedy skits, music numbers...we spent months afterwards mentioning it to each other and it created inside jokes in our family that we still use. CMEDBDI’s? 10/10 best memory at the Capital Centre.
Men of the Deep was one of our most memorable shows at the Capitol Centre. They were fantastic singers and great storytellers from down east! We were fortunate to meet some of the performers after the show - one of whom turned out to be a distant relative!
