Following the purchase of the Royalty Theatre by Ruth Eckerd Hall and the City of Clearwater, the venue has had a thorough cleaning and been officially renamed the Capitol Theatre. Its opening performance was on Saturday, April 4th — a performance from a very talented artist, William Joseph.

William is a dynamic and passionate classical pianist whose pop twist gives a fresh and youthful burst of energy to the genre. His music is emotional, dramatic and engaging. Discovered by David Foster in his native Phoenix, Arizona, he has gone on to release two remarkable albums and perform for the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. “I’m very emotion-driven,” he says of his music. “I only write from feelings that I’m having. It’s not a story, it’s raw feeling.”
