The arts are essential to the health and vitality of neighborhoods, cities, states and our nation. They enhance community development, create jobs, spur urban renewal, attract new businesses, draw tourism dollars, and create an environment that attracts skilled and educated workers.

Nationally, the nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $135.2 billion in economic activity every year—$61.1 billion in spending by organizations and an additional $74.1 billion in event-related spending by their audiences. Restaurants and other retailers reap the benefits as well!

-Partnering with Virginia Musical Theatre can help you get your message across to a wonderfully diverse demographic from all across the region, including Northeast North Carolina –
