Carpenter Theatre

Fully renovated and restored, the historic Carpenter Theatre is the cornerstone of the Dominion Energy Center. It features state-of-the-art lighting and world-class acoustics while still preserving its Old World feel. Its large stage, great acoustics, and 20 dressing rooms make it a performer’s dream venue.

Carpenter Theatre’s main lobby includes two refreshment bars, concierge station, and a gift shop, with two additional refreshment bars upstairs. Four large mosaic tile murals of parrots serve as the backdrop to the four refreshment bars and are a tribute to the handmade parrot that has been perched in the lobby since the theater first opened in 1928. Upon entering the refurbished Carpenter Theatre - with nearly 1,800 seats - audiences 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.
