"Hunchback of Notre Dame" Named in Best of 2018 by Isthmus

Gwendolyn Rice of Isthmus Magazine shares her “idosynchratic list” of “onstage delights.” Capital City Theatre is honored to be included. Here’s the quote about our production of Hunchback of Notre Dame:



Biggest performance by a cast of thousands: Hunchback of Notre Dame, Capital City Theatre

Overture’s Capitol Theater is an imposing venue with a lot of seats to fill. But Capital City Theatre succeeded not only in packing the house during the three-day run of The Hunchback of Notre Dame; they practically stacked performers atop one another on every inch of the stage. The enormous musical with a giant heart received a spectacular production with out-of-town talent augmented by some of the best singers and musicians in Dane County.”
