Capital Repertory Theatre is dedicated to the formation of a meaningful theatre; that is, a theatre with an authentic connection to the community it serves. The plays they choose, their educational programs, intensive apprentice training for young professionals, discussion groups, and special events are each part of a comprehensive whole dedicated to enriching the lives of Capital Region residents.
Capital Repertory Theatre is a professional, not-for-profit cultural organization, and the only member of the League of Resident Theatres (LORT) within fourteen counties of the Upper Hudson-Mohawk Valley.
Capital Repertory Theatre has a rich, local history of excellent entertainment and strong community relationships. Established in 1981, it came into existence through the dedication and perseverance of a group of Albany business, community and civic leaders. Donated labor, materials and expertise transformed the Grand Cash Market, an abandoned supermarket at 111 North Pearl Street, into what was to become the home of Albany’s first professional resident theatre.
