Capital Stage’s mission is to entertain, engage and challenge our audience with bold, thought-provoking theatre.


Capital Stage offers the Sacramento region award-winning, thought-provoking professional theatre, and aspires to be a regional center for theatre development, education, and community enrichment.


Capital Stage hosts several classes and workshops throughout the season through our CapStage Academy program as a part of our mission to provide our community with opportunities for skill development in the performing arts, and to expand the base of working artists in the greater Sacramento region.

Capital Stage presents: Gloria

An ambitious group of editorial assistants at a prestigious Manhattan-based literary magazine are each chasing the same dream: a life as successful writers—and to get out of their cubicles before they turn thirty. When a regular day at the office suddenly becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell the career-making story are higher than ever.

Capital Stage presents: The Chinese Lady

Inspired by the true story of the first Chinese woman to step foot in America, Lloyd Suh’s critically acclaimed play is a tale of dark poetic whimsy and a unique portrait of the United States as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese girl. In 1834, 16-year-old Afong Moy sailed into New York Harbor and was immediately put on display for a paying public who were mesmerized by her exotic ways and horrified by her tiny bound feet. As audiences follow Moy’s travels through America as a living exhibit for decades, THE CHINESE LADY shares her impressions of a young country struggling with how to define itself.
