Emma Fondell is so elated to be a part of such a hardworking, loving, and welcoming cast and crew. She studied theatre at Hope College and the Gaiety School of Acting - The National Theatre School of Ireland. Her favorite credits include THE SPARROW (Joyce McGuckin), END DAYS (Sylvia), MISS JULIE (Christine), AS YOU LIKE IT (Audrey), and SWEENEY TODD (Ensemble). She would like to thank her ukulele and parents for their constant love and support for her dreams.
Get to know Emma! :
TCTP: The characters that live after the incident spend a lot of time looking over their shoulders. What is one of your biggest fears?
EF: One of my biggest fears are bees
TCTP: To deal with what happened that night, some characters turn to certain means of escape. What is your biggest vice?
EF: My biggest vice is to escape to my room where I can be alone and play my ukulele and sing for hours.
TCTP: Tattoos/Body Alterations (best way we could say it with no spoilers) are are a recurring image in the play. Do you have any tattoos/piercings, etc?
EF: I have one tattoo on my left shoulder blade. It is a lotus with a meaningful stem.
TCTP: The incident started from a group of teenagers having a night of dumb, reckless, fun. What’s a dumb thing you did when you were young?
EF: Something dumb I did when I was young is jump on the couch, then proceed to fall over onto a coffee table and now I have a permanent scar on my lip.
TCTP: The majority of the characters are coupled up at the beginning of the play. Who was your first young love? Bonus question: Are you still together?
EF: My first young love was a guy from my grade school. He was an 8th grader (I was in 7th grade). I would dream about the day he would finally talk to me, but then he started dating another 8th grader.
