CORE is an internationally touring independent theatre company based out of Hampton Roads, Virginia. It is currently headed by Emel Ertugrul and Edwin Castillo with artistic members Laura Agudelo and Nancy Dickerson and administrative manager Christopher Bernhardt. We are in constant development of new pieces to present locally in the Hampton Roads area and to tour stateside and internationally. We hold yearly workshops in the Suzuki Method of Actor Training and Viewpoints. We strive to create innovative, compelling ensemble works that challenge and excite the actors involved and the audiences that watch.
