Now a global theatrical entertainer, Emily grew up in Queenstown where she began singing at an early age. Performing in her first musical at the age of 8 years old, Emily went on to complete her Bachelor of Performing Arts at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art in Christchurch.
In 2009, Emily was honoured to be chosen to sing alongside musical theatre star and the world’s longest serving Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera, the late Rob Guest, in his Heartland Tour.
Emily has performed in a number of productions at Christchurch’s The Court Theatre including Mary Poppins and Legally Blonde the Musical and has starred in some standout roles including Eva Peron in Evita, Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins, Little Red in Into the Woods, Sophie in MAMMA MIA! and Cosette in Les Miserables.
Since 2017, she has been performing internationally on luxury cruise ships and is very much looking forward to singing alongside fellow New Zealanders in theatres all over the country. She would like to thank her parents and family for their continuous love and support.
