No Comments 19 September 2016

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.

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 info@cadencetheatre.org.

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

If you are interested in being considered for next year’s camp, please email us at info@cadencetheatre.org.
