#GREATStories

September 5, 2019

When she’s not spending time participating in GREAT camps and productions, Emalyn enjoys soccer, baking, painting, and math. She was in her first play when she was 5 years old, and is 11 now.

“I’ve been in 6 plays, and auditioned for 12. I first tried it because I saw my sister in a summer camp and I heard about how much fun she had. Then when I was in my first play – The Wizard of Oz – it was with my sister AND my brother, which was cool.

My favorite part about all of this is my theatre friends that I’ve been in shows with. I meet new people and then also reconnect with old ones when we’re in shows together. Whenever someone is thinking about joining a show, I tell them JUST GO FOR IT! It’s fun – and even if you don’t get a part, it’s OK because there’s always another show for you to try out again.”

Make new theatre friends, connect with old ones, and audition for a show this season!
