This company had its beginnings in 1999 as the Delta King Theatre, a division of the Riverboat Delta King, and it continues to perform in the riverboat’s 115-seat theatre. In 2004, the company attained full Equity status; the following year, it became an independent, nonprofit organization and its name was changed to Capital Stage Company.
Cap Stage offers fully mounted productions as well as staged readings. Its programming has expanded to include a play development series called the Playwrights’ Revolution; a teen program, Capital Stage Youth Theatre; and an annual tour to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Plans for the future include the development of a new performance venue in the downtown-midtown area of Sacramento.
