Hi there, I'm Emma, 24 from Wilmslow, Cheshire and I've appeared in public in Amateur Theatre since I was 14, also performing in School Productions, as well as local Musical Festivals and Choirs. I love films, seeing friends, and obviously singing and acting! I love meeting new people which is why I love acting so much. Nothing gives me more joy than being thrown into a cast of strangers who gradually become family over the next few weeks and forging lifeling friendships.
Experience & Qualifications
I have grade 5 singing from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and recently came 2nd at the Alderley Edge Festival Vocal Recital Class for Over 18s.
I am passionate about Theatre and am a member of Alderley and Wilmslow Amateur Operatic Society, The Wilmslow Green Room Society, First Stage Theatre Company, The East Cheshires Musical Theatre Company, All Saints Productions, Heald Green Theatre Company and Salford Musical Theatre Company in primarily musicals including:-
