Have you met (new) Emma yet?
Introducing Emma Hanley, the newest addition to our theatre family! With a smile that could outshine Broadway lights, Emma is your go-to gal for all things ticket-related and community projects. She may be a twenty-something (not for much longer....), but her enthusiasm and positivism are straight out of a feel-good coming-of-age film.
Emma's background in movie production brings a dash of Hollywood glamour to our box office. She's a pro at making sure you get the best seat in the house and that your theatre experience is nothing short of blockbuster quality. If she could, she'd probably hand you your ticket with a dramatic "And the Oscar goes to... you!" every time.
But don't let her film expertise fool you—Emma has a deep love for Italian Renaissance art. If you catch her gazing at a poster of the latest production, she's probably pondering the deeper meaning, like she's about to drop some profound wisdom about chiaroscuro lighting.
Now, here's the twist: Emma's got the mind of an elderly man trapped in a young woman's body. She's always got a hilarious anecdote from days of old or a hard boiled sweet, maybe even the odd cashew nut to share. You'll find her dispensing advice like, "Back in my day, we had to wait in line for tickets without the internet!"
Oh, and her secret passion? Caesar salad. She eats them like they're going out of style. You might even catch her behind the bar, convincing patrons to swap their popcorn for some croutons and romaine.
In order to know here better we asked her a few questions, eventually, she answered:
