MAY 2016

Writers were in the Spotlight this month as we partnered with Gibson’s Bookstore and NH Public Radio to host evenings with acclaimed novelists Richard Russo and Sarah Maas. Meanwhile our role in the lives of our youngest performers was poignantly emphasized when the community gathered to remember the life of a young dancer taken too soon. The entire theater was filled with memories and tributes to a talented girl in the place she loved best.

“I’d brought Molly [to the Capitol Center] for one of her many rehearsals in the last year ... and [she said], ‘Mom, I love this place. I love it backstage, I love the dressing rooms, I love performing, I love watching. I just love it here.’ ” - Barb Higgins JUNE 2016

Change was afoot for the beginning of summer! We went onsale with the 2016-2017 Season with a brand new mobile-friendly ticketing system and a colorful new marquee on the walkway. The roar of jackhammers and the clang of excavators signaled that it was our time to see what the bold reconstruction of Concord’s Main Street had in store for our part of town. Meanwhile, a series of small gatherings were held with our closest friends and supporters to talk about some exciting changes coming as part of “Act III: Scene 1, Creating our Future,” a bold new vision for the Capitol Center!

JULY 2016

Some famous characters were seen around the CCA over the summer including Buddy the Elf, Willy Wonka, and James and his very giant peach – all embodied by the talented young men and women of RB Productions – back for its fifth summer in residence at the Capitol Center. Their singing in the hallways, tapping in the lunch room, and laughter in the elevator always makes the summer more lively! We closed out the 2016-2017 Season with a packed house for the first CCA appearance of British headliner Eddie Izzard.

2016 ANNUAL REPORT


It was a year that celebrated twenty years of “Experiencing It Live” at the Capitol Center for the Arts! The 2015-2106 Season brought audience members of all ages and from all walks of life together for performances that ranged from cutting-edge artistry to some of today’s most popular musical artists. Here are some highlights:

SEPTEMBER 2015

The young (and young-at-heart) sang along to classics like “Fruit Salad” when the popular children’s group The Wiggles paid us a visit! Later that month, our week-long 20th Anniversary Festival kicked off with groundbreaking artistry from The Bridgeman|Packer dance duo, who performed “Truck” entirely in a 17 foot truck parked on the CCA walkway! 24 hours later, a sold-out crowd in jeans and cowboy hats rocked out to country superstar Martina McBride.

OCTOBER 2015

Our 20th Anniversary Festival continued into the first weekend of October and concluded with a nostalgia-filled performance of some of Glenn Miller’s greatest hits by the Capital Jazz Orchestra and a post-show “canteen” complete with streamers, twinkle lights and swing dance. We also welcomed Celtic songstress Loreena McKennitt for her first concert in the United States in seven years. At month’s end, those in the know stayed in their seats so they wouldn’t miss the “megamix” dance party that ended each of the back-to-back performances of “Mamma Mia!”

NOVEMBER 2015

“Something wicked this way comes….” This famous warning of Shakespeare’s three witches heralded the arrival of award-winning local theater company, Theatre KAPOW, which dazzled student and mainstage audiences with their innovative, three-actor production of “the Scottish Play.” To clear the theater of the ghost of Banquo, we ushered in performances by accomplished singer-songwriters Brandi Carlile and Colin Hay (of Men at Work fame).

DECEMBER 2015

We are proud of our role as a center of community life, especially during the holiday season. We opened the doors of our beautifully-decorated facilities for a host of community events, including holiday concerts by the talented musicians at Concord High School, a truly epic local holiday pageant, and our own community tradition, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” (featuring the dancers of Eastern Ballet Institute and the young singers of the Concord Community Music School). Perennial favorite Kenny Rogers brought holiday favorites with a country twist to our stage.

What could be more magical than a New Year’s Eve wedding? One at the Capitol Center! While all the weddings at the CCA are lovely, this was one of the most special. January also brought an abundance of formal finery, musical numbers and tearful acceptance speeches when the 14th annual New Hampshire Theatre Awards moved to the Capitol Center. And just in time for Martin Luther King Day, the touring company of “Ragtime” reminded us of how much has changed (and how much has not) with its soaringly beautiful depiction of life at the turn of the century.

Intimate performances were on the calendar in both the Spotlight Café and in our newer Salon Series space on the second floor of the Kimball House. “Rhapsody in Black,” a searing one-actor autobiographical piece about what it means to be African-American in this day and age left audiences thinking and talking, while artist and illustrator Adelaide Tyrol gave our Salon audience a glimpse into her creative process. Meanwhile the best and brightest Granite State spellers battled for their chance to spell c-h-a-m-p-i-o-n at the annual Union Leader Spelling Bee.

“I advocate a kind of spiritual origami, looking inward to address your own prejudices and then seeking to learn about those of your fellow men…. We can afford to have a conversation.” - Leland Gantt, “Rhapsody in Black” MARCH 2016

ACT III , SCENE I

Kids were on stage and in the audience this month! Students from all over the state poured out of their yellow buses in front of the Capitol Center to see shows such as “Lily’s Crossing,” “Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy,” and the classic “Frindle,” all made possible by the Lincoln Financial Foundation’s support of our School Series. Onstage, dancers from New Hampshire and beyond leaped and twirled their way through no less than three enormous dance competitions.

With spring finally in the air, audiences were in the mood to laugh, dance, and sing, and they got their chance with outstanding performances from New England comedian Juston McKinney who brought his “Live Freeze or Die” tour to the CCA; fan favorite Bela Fleck, who brought along Chick Corea for his first appearance on our stage; and country superstar Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland), who introduced us to a new generation of superstars with the “Next Women of Country” Tour.
