(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year and $300,000 the second year from the general fund to the Virginia Stage Company to support its education and outreach programs and expand the number of students served by these programs each year. Currently, the organization serves over 40,000 area students each year. The Virginia Stage Company is southeastern Virginia's only fully professional, resident theater company. The funding will support Virginia Stage Company and its Speaking For The Nation series of stage production that the Company is developing and staging at the historic Wells Theatre in Norfolk for the general public and area students. Additionally, this budget request will help fund the production facility upgrades to assist with the mounting of these productions.)
