A singer, actress, dancer and bassist, Emma is pretty amazing and her talent shines in everything she does.  She began dance lessons at just 3 years old with singing and acting lessons soon after. Emma’s early training prepared her for theatre opportunities.

Emma’s first show was at Brooklyn’s award-winning Gallery Players Theater where she played the role of ‘Baby Louise’ in the musical ‘Gypsy’ – launching their 50th anniversary. Soon after, Emma Grace returned to the Gallery Players Theater to play the role of the ‘Little Girl’ in ‘RAGTIME – In pursuit of the American Dream’ and in 2017 was cast in the lead role of the musical ‘Annie.’ Emma also starred in the title role in Spotlight Repertory Theatre’s production of ‘Matilda’ in 2019.

Emma went on to play Susan Waverly in two consecutive seasons of the Broadway National Tour of Irving Berlin’s ‘White Christmas’ which was a dream come true for Emma. She has also booked regional commercials.

Emma recently participated in ‘Christmas with Arwen’ performing with a few of the brightest young stars of Broadway's biggest stage musicals singing Christmas contemporary classics virtually raising awareness for youth-oriented organizations ‘No Kids Hungry’ and ‘Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child.’ These two nationally-recognized 501(c)(3) charity organizations were carefully chosen by the stars' parents for their commitment to helping children at the community-level, through locally-delivered meals, toys and gifts.

Now 12, Emma continues to hone her craft as an actress and musician. Emma is quite the bassist. She enjoys being an active member of the Broadway Youth Ensemble (BYE), Kids of the Arts (KOTA) and the NYC Tap Crew.
