Who is this girl?

Warm, quick to laugh, and optimistic, Emma Benson is a 'class clown' who grew up in Bedford, New Hampshire, and is a New England girl at heart. She has one little sister, two supportive parents, and two equally supportive labradoodles. As a kid, Emma loved to perform so much that one time she sang 'The Sun'll Come out Tomorrow' at a wedding between two fourth graders, which she was also officiating. (Let the record show, they had NOT asked her to sing, and she severely annoyed the bride.) 


Since graduating from Shenandoah Conservatory in 2018, Emma has worked on three national tours, a number of regional contracts, workshops with the Broadway team for 'Mrs Doubtfire', and belting 80s rock with Syd Norman's Pourhouse onboard Norwegian Cruiselines.

Outside of performing, Emma is passionate about:

  • True Crime

  • Dessert

  • Fitness

  • Rent the Runway

  • Podcasts

  • Travel

  • Law and Order SVU

  • SNL

  • Italian Food

  • Theme parties
