We are thrilled to introduce you to our resident, all knowing, music playing fool, Emmaline Riley - whom we lovingly call Emmy. Emmy plays does double duty in Twelfth Night as both Feste, and the "notable pirate, salt water theif" Antonio.
Q. Where are your originally from and what do you love most about your hometown?
EMMY: Danbury, CT. I love the long winding roads and driving for hours on them through the ever changing seasons of the north east.
Q. In Twelfth Night, twins Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked on a strange island. What three things would you want to have with you if you were stranded on a desert island?
EMMY: My brother, my Birkenstocks, and my sense of adventure.
Q, Many of the characters in Twelfth Night talk about their clothes and style of dress0 - how do you define your personal style? Describe it for us.
EMMY: SWAG. Is she a lumber jack...or a fashion designer?
Q. You, the actors, will constantly be changing roles and genders within the show - what do you think you'd be like as the opposite gender?
EMMY: I've got it in the bag. I've been sporting the short hair for so many years now that I've gotten used to being confused for a male, even with my loving thighs. I'll take it as a compliment!
Q. Twelfth Night features lots of music - who is your favorite band or singer? What is your favorite song by them?
EMMY: Father John Misty, Alabama Shakes, always the Beatles....but for some reason I've been really into the Dixie Chicks lately. Wide Open Spaces has been on repeat as I walk down Broadway the past couple weeks.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
