The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester

Welcome to the home of NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet in Port Chester: The Capitol Theatre! Designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb, the Capitol Theatre opened in August of 1926 as a playhouse with great decorative beauty and luxurious comfort. The grand opening, which included a performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” by a ten-piece orchestra and a showing of Sea Wolf, sold out all of its seats (then 2,000), and had to turn hundreds away. People traveled from near and far to see shows at The Capitol. For decades the public enjoyed classic films like Casablanca, Gone with the Wind and The Taming of the Shrew. Patrons paid as little as 5 cents to see a double-feature Sunday matinee! After being closed for several years, in December 2011, Peter Shapiro announced that The Capitol Theatre would reopen and the venue began a third round of serious renovations. Previously the owner of the legendary Wetlands Preserve in Manhattan and currently the owner of the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Shapiro has no shortage of experience when it comes to running successful live music venues. He has breathed new life into the historical theater—with state-of-the-art light, sound and video systems, and new carpets, repainted walls and upgraded bathrooms.

Port Chester Partner Ballet Studio: The Dance Gallery

 Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full international professional cast are local Charleston children from The Dance Gallery. At The Dance Gallery, it is our mission is to offer quality dance instruction by experienced professionals who possess a passion for teaching students of all ages in a disciplined and nurturing environment.

The Dance Gallery teaches dance as an art form, emphasizing fundamental technique and diversity of styles, including classical ballet, jazz, tap, modern, musical theater and hip-hop. We offer small class sizes that allow for personalized attention and greater focus. Our students do not get lost in the shuffle and are encouraged to learn both individual technique and how to work together as part of an ensemble. We believe that proper dance instruction and the opportunity to perform builds confidence, creative expression and physical development, all of which will benefit our students for a lifetime.

The Dance Gallery is located in the Village of Tuckahoe, New York, in the Town of Eastchester, steps away from the Tuckahoe Metro-North train station and the shops on Depot Square. Our studio is in the Main Street Depot, a restored former substation built in 1908 to accommodate newly electrified rail service from Grand Central Station in New York City to Westchester County on the Harlem Line. The substation once housed the rotary converters that were used to convert alternating current to direct current for third-rail power to trains.
