Capitol Center for the Arts is a nonprofit organization that owns and operates two historic theatres in downtown Concord, NH.  The first is the 1,304 seat Chubb Theatre, first opened in 1927, as the Capitol Theatre, it fell into disrepair and closed in 1989.  Shortly after, the Capitol Center for the Arts was formed and through a significant capital campaign, the theatre was purchased and renovated, reopening in November of 1995.  The Chubb Theatre is host to over 150 events and shows each year.

In 2019, the former Concord Theatre, was purchased and renovated into a multi-function venue with flexible seating accommodating up to 424 people.  Renamed as the Bank of New Hampshire Stage, this unique, second venue quickly became part of the music scene in Concord and hosted over 120 shows in the 8 months it was open prior to the pandemic. Our 2021-2022 season is now on sale and we anticipate being back at full capacity at the beginning of August.

We offer a great opportunity to work at beautiful facilities with top-notch entertainment, with competitive pay and comprehensive benefits: flexible schedules, paid time off, health and life insurance, and Simple IRA with company match. We appreciate your interest.
