Visiting theatre company brings Capreol history to life Oct. 24-25

‘Live History’ will lead interactive walking tour of Capreol’s downtown

The Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre (NORMHC) welcomes the Governor General’s Award nominated theatre company, Live History, to Capreol this month. 

Live History is a theatre company that specializes in bringing local history to life through customized interactive presentations incorporating elements of live theatre, questing and escape room experience. 

The presentation will take place throughout downtown Capreol on Saturday, Oct. 24 and Sunday, Oct. 25 from 12-5 p.m. starting at the museum house at 26 Bloor St.

Live History has performed throughout Canada and has toured international venues in Australia, New Zealand, Bermuda, England, Wales and Ireland. 

“We are ecstatic to welcome such a world-class theatrical production to the museum,” said Stu Thomas, president of the NORMHC board of directors. 

“Bringing the town’s history to life through a theatrical experience creates a new dimension to the visitor experience for the museum.”

The presentation, entitled In Time Unlimited: The Fires, promises to engage participants as they work alongside actors to explore the town and solve mysteries to complete their quest. 

Each character has a unique list of tasks to complete, so be sure to carefully consider which characters you’ll want to help or hinder. 

Characters and their stories appear in real time as they go about their day. For a full experience, be sure to spend as much time as possible with each one. Participants are usually given one hour to complete their quest.

To comply with the NORMHC’s Covid-19 procedures, timed tickets can be purchased from the museum’s website at For more information, please email NORMHC at or call 705-858-5050 or visit Live History’s website at
