Cadence Theatre Company is pleased to announce it has received a $15,000 grant from Capital One. Cadence Theatre Company will use the funds for Stage Write, a student leadership and workforce development program.

C1 IFG V ColorLaunched in 2014, Stage Write uses performance arts training to help Richmond City High School and Middle School students develop and strengthen skills—from critical thinking to teamwork—necessary in today’s workforce. Students work with professional teaching artists to apply these skills in original curriculum, including creative writing, choreography, music, and ensemble training.

“Our goal is to give the students the confidence and life skills they need to be of greatest value to their community at-large,” said Stage Write Program Director Laine Satterfield. “Capital One volunteers have been instrumental in our continued growth and success, and we eagerly anticipate developing next year’s program.”

Through its Future Edge initiative, Capital One is investing $150 million over five years in community grants and support efforts to help more Americans get the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century. For more information, visit www.capitaloneinvestingforgood.com.

“At Capital One, we believe that that a quality education is the most important determinant of future success for children and youth. We are proud to work alongside organizations like Cadence Theatre that provide countless opportunities for students to build workplace skills and confidence, develop relationships with peers and mentors, and ultimately succeed in high school and future careers,” said Erin Dunlap, Managing Vice President of Audit and Skills Pipeline Investment Lead.
