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 National Biscuit Co., a two-story-and-basement industrial building, constructed in 1888, located at 251 North Pearl Street, into what was to become the home of Albany’s first professional resident theatre.
Outreach was made to The League of Theatre Artists, a group of diverse actors, directors and playwrights, who spent summers at Art Awareness in Lexington. Working together, these artists, community leaders and an army of volunteers founded Capital Repertory Company. This initial investment of time and resources created the highly acclaimed, award-winning Capital Repertory Theatre with an annual operating budget of $2.3 million, and a history of producing more than 5,000 performances, employing more than 1,500 professional artists.
In all programs and services, theREP serves its mission by embracing the community as a source of inspiration. We embrace cast, crew and audiences from every background to expand the horizons of thought and understanding of the human condition through the power of theatre.
