LETTER: Letter of support for the State Theatre

Posted by on Dec 20, 2015

The State Theatre’s mission: Showcasing the Arts to Everyone is consistent with the Culpeper Economic Development Advisory Commission’s mission to enhance the quality of life and the standard of living in Culpeper while maintaining our rural integrity.

The State Theatre building offers a stage for local productions, out of town touring artists, gallery space for local artists and reception areas for special events.

The State Theatre provides an unparalleled setting for the arts and entertainment in Culpeper. The Theatre also supports education in the arts and provides a venue for student programs, display and production. Recently, the State Theatre’s educational field trip program has coordinated with well-known theatre companies from around Virginia to bring low-cost educational performances to the students of Culpeper County and other surrounding school systems.

The State Theater is an economic development force. It is a unique destination that adds to the excitement and diversity of downtown and stimulates new business and new investment in Culpeper.

The citizens of Culpeper have invested much to create the vibrant downtown in which we are all proud. The Theatre draws people to our community and encourages downtown shopping and dining. The State Theatre’s brilliant lights serve as a welcome sign into our community and a monument of pride for our residents.
