The strategic plan for the Capri calls for a commitment to youth development with a heavy emphasis on youth engagement woven into every aspect of Capri operations and programming.

Please note: The renovated, expanded Capri will open and youth programming will resume as soon as we’re able, in accordance with required COVID guidelines.

The Capri Theater’s vibrant youth arts and education programming currently includes the programs listed below. When the new Capri opens additional classrooms and activities will be available to scholars in PCYC’s Bright Futures K-5 After School Enrichment program, PYC Arts & Technology High School, and young people and families throughout the community.

We look forward to the day when we can all Be @ the Capri together again. For regular programming updates visit the Capri’s Facebook page and sign up to receive our emails.

The Capri is owned and operated by PCYC.
