Dominion Energy Center

Dominion Energy Center

In 2009, Richmond Performing Arts Alliance (RPAA) celebrated the opening of Dominion Energy Center after proudly leading the campaign to renovate the Carpenter Theatre and expand the footprint of the venue to include Dorothy Pauley Square, home to three new performance and education spaces.

On the first floor, multi-purpose venue Rhythm Hall features local performing artists and an array of activities, concerts, and community gatherings.

The second floor houses Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse, a black box style theater that provides an intimate venue for local performers and audiences to experience the arts.

Genworth BrightLights Education Center, located on the third floor, includes classrooms, rehearsal space, and the Digital Arts Lab. With much activity taking place in the Education Center, the BrightLights Education Initiatives also extend into schools, libraries, community centers and homes all over the Richmond region.

The Dominion Energy Center is located in downtown Richmond, between 6th and 7th Streets, and Broad and Grace Streets. The Carpenter Theatre entrance is at the corner of 6th Street and Grace Street. Entrances to Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse and Rhythm Hall are located on Grace Street in between 6th and 7th Streets.
