Richmond,
VA– CenterStage
Foundation this evening announced that Dominion Resources, Inc. will donate $2
million toward renovations of CenterStage's Landmark Theater.

The announcement came on Thursday
evening, before a performance of The
Nutcracker
by the Richmond Ballet. The new stage to be built as part of the
renovations will be named the “Dominion Stage.”

Dominion CEO Thomas F. Farrell II was
joined on stage by CenterStage Executive Director Richard M. Parison, Jr. and Richmond
Mayor Dwight C. Jones. Farrell says of the donation:

“As part of our commitment to the arts and our community,
Dominion is pleased to donate $2 million to help renovate Richmond's historic Landmark Theater. Once
the renovation is complete, our region will enjoy a complement to the
state-of-the-art Carpenter Theatre and boast yet another world-class venue for
the performing arts.”

Parison expressed the theater's
appreciation of the donation: “We are fortunate to
have a partner like Dominion which understands the power of the arts and the
impact it, as a corporate citizen, can make on our community. Dominion has been
a great supporter of CenterStage and our artistic programs, and we are very grateful
for its continued commitment to supporting the performing arts at our
CenterStage venues in the City of Richmond.”

The
theater will be officially renamed the Altria Theater and the stage will be renamed
in honor of Dominion in late 2013, with the final renovations being completed
in 2014.
