Showcasing Stars from the Piedmont

It's Baaaacck!


In 2014 – along with Buffalo Wild Wings and the State Theatre – local music producer & promoter Gordon Humphrey set out to build a platform for shining the spotlight on talented local performers.  Uncertain of how deep the talent pool was in our area, Culpeper Has Talent was created and the search for our most talented neighbors was on.  

It wasn’t long until we all realized that our little town & the surrounding area was home to an abundance of incredibly talented people.  With each of those first shows, support from the community grew exponentially and the rest as they say … is history.

For two exciting years Culpeper Has Talent showcased scores of amazing performers to capacity crowds.  A new music & performing arts scene had begun to take root & flourish in our area.  We believe CHT played its own small part in that exciting time. 

But hardship would befall CHT when the State Theatre closed its doors – leaving CHT’s future in serious jeopardy.  The multi-million dollar facility had been the perfect venue for our show & many others.  But with its departure, the challenge of staging a world class talent production without a state-of-the-art facility loomed. 

For a time, it appeared that CHT had staged its final show.  The reopening of the theatre did not happen and despite continued hopes for its return, the CHT stage has been dark ever since.  

But based on continued demand & an outpouring of local support, Culpeper Has Talent has been re-engineered, rejuvenated & indeed reborn.  

With a renewed spirit, a new focus on building a new, even bigger talent platform & maybe a few other surprises …
