Cadence Theatre Company Introduces Seven Great Young Theatre Leaders
Cadence Theatre Company in partnership with Virginia Repertory Theatre offers seasonal and summer internships for qualified college students, graduates and young professionals who are actively pursuing careers in professional theater. This year we are pleased to announce that we have selected the following highly talented individuals to join us:

Before attending Longwood, Nicholas graduated cum laude from John Tyler Community College with an A.A. in theatre. While there, he studied and worked under Kerrigan Sullivan. Though his first love is acting, Nicholas enjoys working behind the scenes, particularly in the props department. Nicholas’ first props triumph was during Hedda Gabler. Nicholas is building his props expertise as well as other backstage skills, becoming an all-around theatre asset.

He spent his high school years under the tutelage of Keri Wormald, doing everything from acting in On The Razzle to changing gels for Pride and Prejudice. He is excited to work with Cadence again!
