10th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, September 6, 2019 - RPAA's 10th Anniversary Celebration presented by Altria.  Join us in September when RPAA and the Resident Companies of Dominion Energy Center for the Performing Arts celebrate the tenth anniversary of the completion of the downtown performing arts center which opened as Richmond CenterStage in 2009 and is now known as Dominion Energy Center for the Performing Arts
