When you think about CAPA, what is the first thing that comes to mind? There is a good chance it is our theatres—iconic buildings that are Columbus landmarks and the home of unforgettable performances and precious memories.

We are incredibly proud to serve as the steward of Columbus’ performing arts spaces. But CAPA is more than just our theatres; beyond the physical structures, we build community. We bring people together to enjoy performances, celebrate important moments, and expand horizons through art that challenges and inspires us. CAPA’s presentations, education and outreach programs, and collaborations enrich Columbus and central Ohio, building and supporting a vibrant cultural environment that is at the heart of our dynamic, growing community.

In this report we hope you will see the many ways that CAPA builds community through our activities. The 2021–22 season brought a full-scale return of activity, including the triumphant return of Broadway shows, the debut of Cinema Columbus Film Festival, the CAPA Marquee Awards, and a diverse array of artists and events presented in our theatres. The year was filled with excitement and emotion as artists returned to our stages to captivate audiences with music, comedy, drama, dance, and so much more.

Throughout the season we were moved by the many attendees who expressed how important CAPA is to them, and how happy they were to come back to our theatres. It was just as heartfelt for us to see audiences return in force. Everyone at CAPA is deeply committed to bringing unforgettable arts experiences to Columbus, and we are grateful to be able to get back to doing what we love.

On behalf of everyone at CAPA, we thank you for your support, and we look forward to working together to expand the reach of arts & culture in our community.

Mary Beth & Luke McCormick are great friends to CAPA. You will find them at nearly any CAPA show and now you will find them in the audience with their children and grandchildren! We sat down and asked them about CAPA, the theatres and why they give.

Q: How long have you subscribed to Broadway In Columbus?
A: Decades, literally. I used to attend with my mom, who died in 2003. I have wonderful memories of going to dinner and a show with her, and marveling at the costumes, sets, and talent.

Q: Why do you continue to subscribe?
A: My life is better with the arts in it, and I’ve always been a fan of the theatre. Without the Broadway series to look forward to, my life would be less.

Q: Why do you donate?
A: We both believe the arts are critically important for everyone. We like the interactive nature of theatre and performing arts. Our children have been involved in music and theatre throughout their lives, and we’d like other children to have the same opportunity.

Q: What is your favorite show?
A: Pippin

Q: What do these historic Theatres mean to your family?
A: Columbus is so lucky to have these wonderful theatres. I remember seeing Around the World in 80 Days at the Ohio when I was a child. It blew me away. Years later, when our youngest was four, we saw High Noon at the Ohio and he was hooked. Our oldest loved seeing the Jazz Arts Group at the Southern when he was in high school, and it led to a career in music. Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention my great aunt Margaret who performed at the Palace when she was in vaudeville. These amazing venues are in our DNA at this point.

Q: Most surprising show you have seen?
A: My biggest surprise was watching my mom do the hokey pokey when Mandy Patinkin was here in the fall of 2001. He had the whole audience get up and do it, but I never thought she would. He managed to give us hope again, and to make us laugh.

Q: What do you wish people knew about CAPA?
A: There is something for everyone.

Passport to Learning Series

CAPA marked its 11th season presenting matinee performances for students in grades Pre-K-12—a return to live performance, even with social distancing requirements. This year, CAPA awarded a total of $4,435 in scholarship and transportation assistance for our four in-person productions.

After the phenomenal reach of virtual arts engagements last year, it was exciting to offer virtual programs again this season. 36,953 students were registered to experience Hip Hop Body Rock With Paige Hernandez and GRIMMZ Fairy Tales. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors, these programs were offered free-of charge.

Social Justice Series

As part of CAPA’s commitment to fight systemic racism in our community, the Social Justice Series was launched. This series explores the issues facing our community and nation, through the perspectives of a range of outstanding artists of color. Titles were intentionally selected to provide age-appropriate student matinee offerings spanning kindergarten through high school, so educators could select the right production for their students.

CAPA’s education programs served more than 43,000 students in 119 schools from 19 school districts in 9 counties providing free and low-cost educational and artistic experiences.

Broadway for Kids Applause Program

This year with the return of Broadway in Columbus, the Broadway for Kids Applause Program was relaunched. Thanks to the generosity of our Broadway subscribers, over $35,000 in subsidies were awarded and 755 students and teachers in five counties had the opportunity to attend Hadestown, Come From Away, and Wicked.

Community Outreach

On April 26, CAPA held a free community performance by nationally recognized spoken word virtuosos, The Mayhem Poets. Before the performance, youth poets aged 13–22 were invited to display their talents and share their work as the opening act. Each youth poet signed up for the open mic event sponsored by The Huntington National Bank and presented a two-minute poem.

The Mayhem Poets also attended the open mic and worked with the youth poets to create a collective poem on “imagining a world without injustice,” which they were invited onstage to perform during the show.

The 2021–22 season kicked off by welcoming back volunteers to the historic Ohio Theatre with a special Summer Movie Series screening of North by Northwest. Volunteers who actively volunteered since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic received special ApART Together pins to commemorate their service. As the season quickly ramped up in the fall, more than 70 new volunteers joined CAPA and donated their time to ensure every patron’s experience is memorable. In our busiest time of the year our volunteers always shine. More than 1,300 shifts were filled and over 6,200 hours of service were donated in December 2021. Our incredibly dedicated volunteers make CAPA’s work possible.

Broadway is Back!

CAPA celebrated Broadway in Columbus’ return with a sold-out run of the Tony Award-winning Hadestown to open the 2021–22 season. After one year, eight months, and five days since the last Broadway show at the Ohio Theatre, all patrons were thanked for their loyalty and patience with a flower and a note of appreciation.

To add to the excitement, a special “Broadway’s Back” video was created with new lyrics sung to popular Broadway songs, referencing the pandemic shutdown and triumphant return. The video starred Broadway in Columbus’ Lisa Minken and featured many CAPA staffers, including a cameo by CAPA CEO Chad Whittington.

Bonobos to Broadway

To highlight the connection between Come From Away and Columbus, Broadway in Columbus and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium presented “Bonobos to Broadway,” a special event at the Columbus Zoo’s Africa Event Center. It featured a panel discussion with Bonnie Harris, manager of the Gander and Area Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Newfoundland); Audra Meinelt, curator of the Columbus Zoo’s Congo Expedition region; Petrina Bromley, who originated the role of Bonnie Harris on Broadway; and Sue Frost, producer of Come From Away. During the discussion, they chatted about Come From Away, Unga (the bonobo talked about in the show who lived at the Columbus Zoo), and the incredible five days she spent in Gander. The ticketed event raised more than $9,000, with proceeds split between bonobo conservation and the Lewisporte Area Flight 15 Scholarship Fund, a scholarship that benefits high school seniors in Gander, started by Dublin resident Shirley Brooks-Jones.

Maroon Arts Group — Inside the Riot

In March 2022, CAPA and Maroon Arts Group shared newly recorded performances of selections from Maroon Arts Group’s original production Inside the Riot (2018), enacted in the Southern Theatre by nine Columbus-based powerful creatives from Maroon Arts Group’s Write the Power residency program. (The program was also offered virtually.) After three short video excerpts, the audience was invited to the Lincoln Theatre to participate in a moderated artist talkback with the work’s writers and performers to discuss their reflections and creative process.

“Coming Together for Ukraine” Benefit Concert

CAPA partnered with Eric Gnezda, creator of the PBS series “Songs at the Center,” for a benefit concert that was held in the Jo Ann Davidson Theatre on May 4, 2022 and headlined by Ukrainian virtuoso violinist Arkadiy Gips. Concert performers also included members of The Columbus International Children’s Choir, Ukrainian guitarist Alex Gordez, the Tony Hagood Quartet, flutist Cheri Papier, filmmaker and composer Max Platitsyn, the Ukrainian Folk Ensemble, and blues singer Shaun Booker. All donations from the concert went to the Ukraine War Relief Fund administered by the Grace Evangelical Church, Grove City, which is working with churches in Europe to provide transportation, shelter, food, and medical supplies for displaced Ukrainians both in Europe and Ukraine.

Shared Service Agreements

CAPA offers customized back office services to local arts organizations, allowing the organizations to focus on quality programming for their audiences. Service agreements can include marketing, ticketing, finance, human resources, IT, management, operations, and development. Partners include:

CBUSArts Ticketing

CBUSArts, a ticketing service powered by CAPA, serves the sales needs of resident groups and other presenters in CAPA venues, in addition to other select venues. CBUSArts provides enhanced customer relationship management tools specifically designed for arts organizations. Launched in 2019, CBUSArts is 100 percent local and fees support CAPA’s mission-driven initiatives designed to make Columbus a national destination for the performing arts.

CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF FESTIVAL LATINO

During the pandemic, CAPA kept the spirit of Festival Latino going with an all-virtual presentation in 2020 and a hybrid virtual/live concert event in 2021.

So it was time to truly celebrate the 25th anniversary when Festival Latino came roaring back to Genoa Park in August 2022 with massive crowds, busy vendors, outstanding food, and top-notch musical talent. The free, two-day, family friendly festival is the largest of its kind in Ohio.

A free opening night dance party kicked off the 25th anniversary weekend at Lower.com Field, home of the Columbus Crew.

New branding was created by Jeremy Rosario Maldonado, a Columbus-based creative director, fine artist, and visual communicator. Born in Puerto Rico, Jeremy says the new logo was inspired by a Saludo or “celebratory greeting.”

Festival Latino provides an “opportunity to truly get to know the Latino community. Our food, our music, our people, and our culture,” said Ramona Reyes, Festival Latino steering committee chair and CAPA board member, in a Columbus Dispatch interview. “What better way than with music, food, and fun.”

CAPA would like to thank our generous festival sponsors and give special thanks to the Festival Latino Steering Committee members for their dedication and support of the Festival’s extraordinary 25th anniversary celebration.

Touted as “big names at no charge,” the series welcomed a stellar lineup, with concerts by The Beach Boys and Sheryl Crow, featuring special guest Keb’ Mo’.

“These events showcase the vibrancy of the arts in Downtown Columbus and collectively remind us that music can be a great connector,” said Amy Taylor, CDDC President. “We’ve worked together to take away the barrier of a ticket price to allow our community to celebrate, sing along, dance and find joy. We are grateful to CAPA for being both a financial partner and thought leader with this wonderful concert series.”

It was a magical evening at the Palace Theatre on May 14 for the 2022 CAPA Celebration Gala. The evening was in honor of Donna & Larry James for their extraordinary leadership, commitment, and contributions to the arts community in central Ohio. Broadway legend Norm Lewis entertained the sold-out crowd, and filled the Palace stage with music. Special thanks to Benita and Lewis Smoot, Jr., our Gala Co-Chairs, and to all of our generous sponsors for helping to raise over $240,000 for CAPA and more than $70,000 for our Education Endowment.

To celebrate the Southern Theatre’s 125th birthday, thousands attended CAPA’s free open house on September 26. Proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Southern Theatre opened in 1896 as a “modern,” jewel box-style opera house, offering performances from some of the greatest names of the theatrical world and a new genre called Broadway. Restored and re-opened by CAPA in 1998, the 920-seat Southern Theatre is Columbus’ oldest existing theatre and the only remaining double-balcony theatre. The self-guided tours included access to the stage and rarely seen backstage areas such as the dressing rooms, orchestra pit, and fly loft.
