Seventh Annual Bardathon Presented by RPAA and Quill Theatre

Since 2010, Richmond Performing Arts Alliance has been pleased to partner with Quill Theatre to present Bardathon, the region’s only non-competitive theater festival. Each year, high school theater teams from throughout Central Virginia come together to perform scenes from a work of the Bard, putting their individual (school) interpretation to their assigned scenes. The result is an incredibly diverse presentation of a complete work. Here’s a scene from the 2016 production, Twelfth Night.

Each year, Richmond Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to host Richmond Public Schools’ All-City Jazz Honors Band. Students represent some of the best of Richmond Public Schools’ music education programs. Area high school students spend the day at our Dominion Energy Center, working with local professional jazz artists (and their teachers). Each event culminates with a free public concert by the students, which is streamed by students from RPAA’s Video Production Course, live from our Rhythm Hall.
