Excitable, tomboyish, 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 three 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.) 

 

In 2018, Emma graduated from Shenandoah Conservatory with her BFA in Musical Theatre. Immediately after graduating, Emma toured the country and South Korea in the ensemble of the 2nd National Tour of 'Something Rotten', all while honing her standup act. This first tour launched a series of other gigs, both touring and regionally, where she has made lifelong friends. Outside of performing, Emma is passionate about:

  • True Crime

  • Dessert

  • 305 Fitness

  • Rent the Runway

  • Exploring NYC

  • Travel

  • Law and Order SVU

  • SNL

  • Italian Food

  • Theme parties
