George Capaccio

George’s performing career includes working as a professional storyteller for audiences of all ages. For many years, he has brought his love of stories and of performing to public schools in and around Boston where he worked as an artist educator for grades K-8. In recognition of his teaching skills, he was selected as a Master Artist Teacher by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

For several years, he acted with the Museum of Science’s Science Theater, where he performed in the Planetarium as Galileo and in the Theater of Electricity as Nikola Tesla, in addition to acting in a play celebrating the scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci. His original, one-person shows include a performance based on the letters of a 19th century English immigrant in Lowell, MA and a fictional monologue drawing from actual events during the first Gulf War in 1991.

George has performed in many of Boston’s theaters, including the American Repertory Theater (ART). As a member of the cast in ART’s Alcestis, written and directed by Robert Wilson, George traveled to Paris to perform in the annual Festival d’Automne. He is also a writer and award-winning poet. His published works include both fiction and nonfiction titles for educational publishers. He is particularly proud of the books he wrote for a science series. His most recent writing accomplishment is a series of hardcover books exploring aspects of colonial New England.
