"Wayside Theatre                        200,000     0".

(This amendment provides $200,000 the first year from the general fund to the Wayside Theatre. The Wayside Theatre, with the assistance of the Front Royal EDA has now decided to enlarge its reach into the Northern Shenandoah Valley community by maintaining both the Front Royal performance venue and its historic home in Middletown. This expansion will allow the Theatre to expand its cultural, economic, and educational impact by creating a dual venue destination that caters to tourism as well as the local community. The requested funds would be used for two capital projects: $100,000 for capital expenses to assist in the renovation of the Middletown home of Wayside Theatre and $100,000 for additional staff for marketing Wayside Theatre’s dual venue operation, and for additional staff for expanding the educational activities to both communities.)
