Culpeper, VA, June 7, 2016 — The State Theatre of Culpeper (the Premier Venue of the Virginia Piedmont) announces it has been voted by The Culpeper Times newsgroup and the community, as The Best of the Best Theatre in Culpeper for 2016! The Culpeper Times is a weekly Thursday newspaper distributed to more than 10,500 residents of Culpeper County, and is delivered to high traffic locations throughout Madison, Orange and Fauquier Counties. The State Theatre is passionate about supporting its local community and reaching beyond Culpeper to connect with the Piedmont Region.

The entire list of winners may be viewed in the digital issue of the June 2nd Culpeper Times Best of the Best issue: http://culpepertimes.com/pdf/culpeper/2016/0602bestof/mobile/index.html#p=1

Tom Spargur, Group Sales Director at The Culpeper Times is the director of the awards program, and says, “”I have been involved with several Best of sections in Culpeper for six years; four years at another paper and now the second year at The Culpeper Times. This year was the largest amount of voting from the community that I’ve experienced in those six years. We had over 4,000 plus votes cast! Most of the voting was online, as we expected, but the number of written-in ballots still amazes me. Several businesses won for the second year in a row, but many took the honor for the first time.”

The State Theatre’s Executive Director, Steven Barker, says “We have the honor of working in this amazing building, which is centrally located in the heart of the Culpeper community along Main Street. We are very pleased that our community has recognized The State Theatre with a The Best of The Best Award, which shows that our efforts to bring the Arts to everyone are seen and heard. We remain committed to the people of Culpeper and hope to see everyone in our facility this year.”

In addition, The State Theatre will host a booth at the CulpeperFest event this Friday evening. Raffles, prizes, the opportunity to win tickets to an upcoming concert event, the ability to purchase tickets to The State Theatre events from the booth, and fun giveaways will be offered at The State Theatre booth. In addition, memberships and name bricks and stars to be printed and permanently fixed to the walkway on Main Street, may also be ordered. The State Theatre staff and volunteers will host the booth to answer questions about upcoming shows and events, the summer events calendar, and membership and involvement within the non-profit organization.
