The Capitol Centre is set to host an online “Streamathon” Oct. 20 featuring both live and recorded entertainment.
A media release from the Capitol Centre says the event will be streamed live on Facebook from the Betty Speers Theatre and be hosted in partnership with KiSS 100.5, 101.9 Rock and Country 600.
The organization says it has lost revenue from shows, rentals and two major annual fundraising events since being shut down by the pandemic, and is looking to recoup some of those losses.
“Like other theatres, the Capitol Centre has been hit hard financially by this pandemic,” director of programming and events Dan Misturada said.
“Losing our golf tournament and our annual Hops & Vines event really hurt because they typically account for over $35,000 of our annual fundraising revenue.”
Kevin in the Morning and KiSS 100.5 program director Kevin Oschefski says everyone at KiSS, 101.9 Rock and Country 600 are proud to do their part to help ensure the future success of the Capitol Centre.
“The show must go on. In times like these, we need the joy of entertainment now more than ever.”
The Capitol Centre will release more details in the coming weeks.
