DIRECTING

Photography by Curtis and Cort

Emma believes directing is about service; to serve your collaborators, to serve the audience, and most importantly - to serve the story. 

Emma is director who builds everything up from the story. She is not someone who believes in always having a "concept" - but rather taking strong ideas and building blocks from the text and music, and showcasing what is already there. She will NOT overcomplicate; she tells the story. Emma believes in the creativity, beauty, and joy in the simplicity of strong telling and listening to the work.

 

As a director, Emma specializes in musical theatre. She is drawn in by the collaborative nature of bringing together song, movement, storytelling, and visual design. Emma is passionate about presenting theatrically in a way that still feels intimate and important. 

 

Emma believes musical theatre should be allowed to get a little messy, and because of this she specifically enjoys doing rock musicals. Thematically, Emma is attracted to female centric stories, shows that focus on community, coming of age stories, and she is a sucker for an underdog. 

Everything must and always will go back to the story when working with Emma.
