I am impressed with Capital Stage. They are a young theatre company but one that has mastered its product-providing quality theatre. They are professional yet personal. They believe in providing edgy and bold works but also promoting new works with their annual playwright's festival. They embrace theatre and embrace it with their audience members by providing an opportunity to go with them to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This is just another example of their high level of "community". They periodically give "talk back" sessions after shows that promote this too. I've had the opportunity to introduce a coworker of mine to the theatre experience recently and took her to Capital Stage. Her first play with Capital Stage won't be her last. So looking forward to seeing more productions with Capital Stage and introducing them to more people in the future.

Capital Stage is my favorite professional theatre in Sacramento and I’m never disappointed with the productions. Always interesting, thought provoking, and intelligent. The acting and directing is top notch. Being involved with theatre myself; I’m also interested in the sets and lighting. They do an excellent job in that category. I am amazed what they do with that stage! The management staff treats everyone with kindness and respect. It’s that personal touch the staff gives that I think is the best.

Wow! Capital Stage is my favorite professional theatre in Sacramento. I always expect to see great productions there and I always do! They continue to shock me with their talent, creativity, boldness, and professionalism. Also, I was a student in their Youth Theatre Program and was satisfied with the training I received. In the program, I was challenged as an actor and grew a lot as a result. Our instructor gave each student individual attention, tailored to their unique needs. Capital Stage is a gem in Sacramento!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their Youth Theatre Training. I was challenged artistically and pushed to dig deeper into my character. The students were taught about numerous aspects of theatre including acting, sets/lights, and script analysis. Capital Stage is fabulous!

I have been on the Board for about 4 years and have found it very rewarding and a great way to advance the arts in Sacramento. Capital Stage consistently delivers intelligent, thought-provoking, entertaining and edgy professional theater. Plan on going out for drinks after a performance you and your friends will want to dissect what you have seen.

The Great!

Getting my fix for great theater -- I can't get to New York as often as I would like for theater and Capital Stage fills the void with smart, superbly acted plays.

Capitol Stage is a unique, extraordinary theatre company that brings Sacramento something we don't get enough of...edgy contemporary theatre. Their work is consistently strong and always interesting. An added bonus, is that the management team is not only made up of working actors, but the nicest, most welcoming group you could imagine. It's a terrific company, growing by leaps and bounds because everyone who sees something there, wants to come back, subscribe, get involved. Bravo to Capitol Stage! I hope they're around for a long, long time.

This is a gem of a company, stowed away within the touristy glitz of Old Sacramento. As a Sacramento native, I never would have believed that one of my favorite places to perform and collaborate would emerge out of Old Sac. Capital Stage maintains an unflinching level of artistry that makes artists clamor to be there, and their audience is growing. Fearless play selection, commitment to strong local talent and an enormously talented and committed staff have made my experiences with Capital Stage some of the most rewarding of my career.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the collaborative nature of their artistic structure.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

vastly committed and, almost certainly, overworked, as most artistic non-profit staffs are!

This is a phenomenal little theatre company that hugely enriches the Sacramento performing arts scene. I've been coming to plays at Capital Stage for five years now, and I've never seen a bad production. The play selection, acting, direction, sets, music - everything is excellent. As good as you could find anywhere in the Bay Area or LA, or anywhere else for that matter. There's an intelligence that pervades every aspect of every production. Customer service is fantastic and the atmosphere is welcoming. I just worry about staff burnout - everyone is doing so much all the time and they simply will not let quality suffer no matter how many hours they have to put in. Another drawback is their current location, which offers no hint that there is in fact a theatre located on board the Delta King riverboat.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching plays that are thoughtfully selected, thought provoking, and produced with total commitment to quality.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise the money to bring in a full-time development director.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

feeling like part of the team that puts together such outstanding work.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

intelligent, dedicated friendly, risk-taking, caring, humorous, and unbelievably talented.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

show the world what regional theatre is meant to be like; put together an incredible theatre arts education program; develop local playwrights and other theatrical talent; tour to other parts of the Central Valley that don't have anything this amazing.

Ways to make it better...

I knew that there was a broad and deep enough donor base to support the staff properly.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out to theatre lovers and arts supporters that Capital Stage (a) is out there and (b) needs their support through contributions as well as ticket purchases.

One thing I'd also say is that...

we need additional board members - folks who love the arts and who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and help out with a range of tasks.

There's really not enough stars to rate this company properly. Everything is done extremely well, and the people genuinely care for, and appreciate not only their subscribers, but their volunteers. Helping out at Capital Stage feels more like hanging out with friends than work. There's always a sense of acomplishment, and you always feel appreciated.

MOVE TO A BETTER SPACE!

Ways to make it better...

It wasn't in Old Town.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

location, location, location! The Delta King Riverboat is charming for about five minutes, but this company will never truly spread it's wings until it is in a proper space.

One thing I'd also say is that...

parking is expensive and sometimes a problem, and I HATE getting stuck behind those damned buggies!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

their location.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This small professional theatre company has completely shaken up the performing arts scene in Sacramento. Performing in a relatively small venue, Capital Stage provides breathtakingly intimate and skillful characterizations alongside provocative themes. Their audience continues to grow as lovers of great theatre find them and become loyal to their consistency. This company is solidly run and growing. I am consistently moved by the so-called "magic of theatre" from this company. I am a subscriber and have enjoyed most of the productions I have seen there (nothing's perfect!). The staff has always been exceedingly curteous and accomodating. Perhaps this company needs a larger venue to spread the word --- but the intimacy is what makes their work so magical. I also miss the days when finances didn't so strictly dictate the cast size of a production. But oh well! That has meant only more time to explore characterization, which is what they do best anyway.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

intense, moving, transformative characterizations.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The great collaborative and appreciative spirit of the ensemble.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make our community a leader in the performing arts. They would surely expand and offer their usual top quality professional theatre, but with an expanded reach and richer production values. That would be awesome.
