Be An Angel

Click the Big, Red Button and Get Your Wings!!

Education, and collaboration with other Madison Arts organizations are two important steps toward making Madison a destination for the Arts. Our vision is that people will travel from down the street and from around the world to experience Capital City Theatre. Madison residents, students who attend classes, and vacationing audience members will immerse themselves in the world of Madison’s imagination.

You can make this happen.

Michele Ragusa, the incredible cast of Gypsy, and our students -- light up the stage!


The Reviews are in!

Michele Ragusa not only embodies Mama Rose in Capital City Theatre’s production, she dazzles the audience with every overbearing word, every calculating move and every desperate song. Her singing voice is reminiscent of Judy Garland in her prime.
