About Us

Our Mission

CAPA enriches lives by cultivating and nurturing the arts, spreading an appreciation that can be felt in hearts, minds and the economy of our communities.

Our Vision: Columbus is a national destination for living, breathing art.

The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) was formed in 1969 to save the historic Ohio Theatre (Columbus) from the wrecking ball. After the theatre was saved, CAPA renovated the magnificent 1928 movie palace to its original glory. It was then that CAPA became the leaders in theatre rehabilitation and downtown redevelopment. Since then, CAPA has adopted Columbus' Palace Theatre and Southern Theatre, and manages the Riffe Center Theatres, the Shubert Theatre in New Haven, CT, and the Lincoln Theatre.

One unique aspect of CAPA is its shared service business model, offering personalized back-office services to local arts organizations. While each agreement is tailored to fit each organization's needs, some of these services include marketing, ticketing, management, operations, finance, publicity, human resources, IT, and development. CAPA's shared services partners include: American Public Gardens Association (APGA), Contemporary American Theatre Company (CATCO), Columbus Cultural Leadership Consortium (CCLC), the Columbus Symphony Orchestra (CSO), the Drexel Theatre, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Leadership Columbus, the Lincoln Theatre, Opera Columbus, the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts and Hinson Amphitheater, the Shubert Theatre, and the Short North Stage.

Since its inception in 1969, CAPA has achieved international recognition for the diversity of the performing arts and entertainment programming it presents, the dramatic restoration of historic theatres, excellence in facility management, and positive contributions to the quality of life in downtown Columbus.
