In 2008, the Arts & Business Council recognized Capital Stage with the 'Arts Management Excellence' award. That same year, our Founding Artistic Director, Stephanie Gularte, was selected as one Sacramento Magazine's '40 Under 40' people to watch for 'giving a shot in the arm to local theatre.' In 2010, the Sacramento News & Review named Capital Stage "the best of the best" for "an unbroken history of picking great plays for great directors, casting them well and letting the show go on from there." With Cap Stage's rapid growth, it was only a matter of time before our small professional company with its quality productions of contemporary plays, would outgrow our home aboard the Riverboat Delta King. We are bursting with pride to presenting our ninth Cap Stage season, the third season in our new home on J Street, the historical Old Armoury repurposed as a custom-designed 125-seat theatre space. This move not only gives Cap Stage a home of our own, it puts us in the heart of the vibrant and thriving midtown Sacramento district where we will ensure our company's trademark intimacy and intensity while expanding our artistic possibilities. At Cap Stage we bring gutsy, thought-provoking plays to our community, casting the finest actors, and pursuing an artistic vision that explores the very core of what it means to be human. In our new 2215 J Street home, we keep audiences close to the action with new heights of creativity.
