Time Out says
The Capital casts a grand shadow across Bendigo. Built in 1873, the building was originally used as a Masonic Hall, although these days it's theatre lovers who enter through its towering Corinthian columns.
The Capital's theatre can seat nearly 500 people, and it also has two heritage chambers that show off the ornate plasterwork, stained-glass windows and high ceilings of yesteryear (while also having all the modern wiring and audiovisual equipment for conferences and events).
This July the Capital will host several standout shows, including Point of No Return. The play takes place in colonial Australia, at Point Puer Boys' Prison next to Port Arthur, Tasmania. A group of boys recently transported to the prison from England must learn how to survive and grow while in the prison's brutal custody. See Point of No Return on Tuesday, July 18.
Looking for something to entertain the rugrats? The Capital is also hosting Splash Test Dummies this July, a rip-roaringly fun circus and acrobatics show for all ages. See it at the Capital on Sunday Juy 15.
