Welcome to our forever home

The new facility by the numbers

Capital Repertory Theatre opened its doors for the first time on March 24, 2021, for a press conference to show off this renovated former commercial bakery at 251 N. Pearl St. in Albany. Our organization was previously a tenant in a former grocery store – for nearly four decades – just a half mile away on the same street. Here are some quick facts about our new home:

  • The seating capacity is 302                
  • The square footage is 28,000.
  • 24 feet is the furthest distance from any seat to the stage
  • The renovation cost was $14 million and was completed over two years.
