Carpenter Theatre

Richmond

Dominion Arts Center

Dominion Arts CenterFully renovated and restored, the historic Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center is open and alive with performing arts! State-of-the-art lighting and world-class acoustics will attract both audiences and entertainers from around the corner, and around the world, filling the stage with opera, dancing, singing, symphonies, concerts, plays and even Broadway shows. Upon entering the refurbished Carpenter Theatre – complete with nearly 1800 seats – audiences will enjoy newly installed fiber optic stars twinkling overhead in the repainted midnight sky ceiling, one of the many preserved and enhanced elements of John Eberson’s original theater design. The Carpenter Theatre celebrated its 80th birthday last year and what better way to commemorate this milestone than to welcome audiences back to this fun-filled, enchanting Downtown Richmond landmark.
