    We are using a single column template called Capricorn and would like to add widgets. Since this template does not have any sidebars is this possible?

    Thank you in advance.

    Of course, you can.
    Put this into your functions.php

    if (function_exists('register_sidebar') )
    register_sidebars(6 (or any other number), array(

    ));

    and in your template files wherever you want this

    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) : ?> <?php endif; ?>
    and this
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(2) ) : ?> <?php endif; ?>
    and so on.
