Capitol Theatre to temporarily open for show
WINDSOR, ONTARIO, CANADA — Theatre Intrigue has apparently reached a deal with the bankruptcy trustee of the closed Capitol Theatre to temporarily reopen the theatre so the theatre group could stage a student production of Les Miserables there from September 21 to October 6.
The theatre group needs to pay for liability insurance and sign waivers to protect theatre assets from damage. Theatre Intrigue could not find another venue in the Windsor area to stage the production and wanted to use the closed Capitol Theatre. Trustee Stephen Funtig expressed unexpected support to allow for the use of the theatre which gave the Windsor arts community hope that the theatre can return to full use as an arts facility.
