Get the experience of working in a one-on-one classroom setting in NYC! You will work on-camera with Instructor Emma Orelove, using a specific side she has provided. These sides will be sent in advance to the class, and you will choose one. Emma will then work with you on your prepared piece, providing feedback and adjustments, including the technicalities of putting an audition on tape. Your scene will be recorded by John Moon and emailed to you following the class! Please come with your sides audition-ready.

Emma OreloveEmma Orelove has had a crush on the theatre since age 7. Born in Richmond, she was raised through SPARC and Virginia Rep. She has over 22 years of experience and has worked professionally in a dozen of the States and in Italy. Upon moving to New York, Emma’s pursuits expanded to include screen work. She has since shot 3 films, starred in 3 music videos, filmed an industrial, started her own production company, and recently wrapped a feature film as a principal. She is currently working with one of the largest commercial agencies in NYC and working towards becoming the next Wendy’s girl. Until then, you can catch her back in Richmond in Airline Highway running at Virginia Rep through February 12th!

Teens Make Horror FIlm

No Comments 08 September 2016

Cadence Theatre Company and Richmond CenterStage worked together this summer to offer a Film Production Project Camp. Youth created “Unfortunato, “an original short horror film loosely based on Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado.” Our wonderful  students conceived of, wrote, edited, acted in and created the sound design in only two short weeks!

In addition to the film itself, they also created 30-60 second shorts and a behind-the-scenes video. This camp was led by instructors Matt Polson, John Moon, Tristan Brown and Laine Satterfield.

If you are interested in being considered for next year’s camp, please email us at

Warning! This film is not for the faint-of-heart!
