Several Shenandoah Conservatory acting and musical theatre students (now alumni) and faculty are featured in Shenandoah University’s next movie, “GetAWAY.” A number of students also helped run sound and lighting and assisted with camera, script supervision and directing.
The film stars Emma Norville ’19 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting), Danielle Carrozza ’19 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting), Kyle Mangold ’19 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre), Franchesca Contreras ’19 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting), Michael Recchia ’19 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre) and Joshua Cody ’20 ( Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre).
This release is exciting, especially as Blayne is set to begin filming the third SU feature film with our 2020 Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting graduates as soon as conditions permit. At a time when the industry is difficult for everyone, and especially for entry-level young actors, this film release and its exposure will prove particularly meaningful for our 2019 graduates and their careers. Likewise, it is meaningful for both the conservatory and film department. The two have worked together to provide opportunities for student filmmakers and actors to apply their crafts and create cinematic art.”
– Martha Wollner, M.F.A. | Visiting Associate Professor of Theatre
The film is written and directed by Instructor in Theatre and Director-in-Residence Blayne Weaver, B.A., and produced by Distinguished Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music Production & Recording Technology and Director of the Film Studio at Shenandoah Paul DiFranco.
