The Cradle Theater

Our name is representative of the two core values of our company. We began as a student company, and now as we leave this time of being students, and our company gets older, we want to hold on to what is great about student theatre: theatre that is unbridled in its imagination and energy. Additionally, we are interested in examining where we come from to know where we are going, which is why we have devoted ourselves to studying the works that come from the cradle of civilization--The Greeks, Shakespeare and his contemporaries, and later, new work inspired by folklore and mythology.

Ursula Belarouskaya is a foreign exchange student of ambiguous Eastern European extraction.  Ursula is an Olympic level gymnast, but the rest of her background is a bit of a mystery. She may or may not be catfishing Celine Dion, but no one knows for sure.

Ursula is played by Amelia Dudley. Amelia is a recent graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she majored in Acting. She studied acting, directing and design at the Playwrights Horizons Theatre School, and screen acting at Stonestreet Studios. She graduated from Carver Center for Arts and Technology in 2010, and that year she was also featured as an actor in The Cradle Theatre’s first production, Love’s Labour’s Lost (Princess of France). She also appeared in The Cradle’s summer 2011 production of Romeo and Juliet (Friar Lawrence), and our summer 2013 production of Measure for Measure (Isabella). Amelia made her directing debut with The Cradle’s summer 2012 Production of Henry V. Other performance credits include The Tempest (Ariel) at the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival’s Teen performance program in 2009, The Carver Theatre Company’s 2010 production of The Crucible (Abigail Williams), Am I Blue (Ashbe) at Playwrights Horizons Theatre School, and Primer for a Failed Superpower, a devised theatre project at Playwrights Horizons Theatre School, lead by members of The TEAM. She has also recently made her film debut with Stonestreet Studio’s Rerun (Violet), and in Shane Logue’s The Long Haul (Brianna).  Amelia is the Associate Artistic Director of thecradletheatre
