Regent University's Communication & Performing Arts Center has quickly earned the respect of industry professionals, artists, and patrons throughout the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Built in 2002, this $35 million, 140,000-square-foot building attracts world-class performers, public speakers, political leaders, corporations, educators and others who require technical and aesthetic excellence.
