"She longs for excitement in a caged and isolated life."
'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' runs this coming Thursday until Saturday at the Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking - The evening shows will probably sell out so book now at our box office whilst you still can!
Your Name: Emma Hough
Character Name: Johanna
Tell us about your character: She is Sweeney’s lost daughter who has now been entrapped by Judge Turpin as his ward. She longs for excitement in a caged and isolated life.
Your favourite lyric your character has: ‘I'm a silly little ninny noddle’ - I think Anthony and Johanna are generally played as ‘wet fish’. I hope that we have brought more life and character into the roles. No wet fish here!
What’s your favourite song in the show and why? My favourite song is Epiphany, if you aren't terrified after Darren sings this you are very brave.
What other shows have you done? Les Miserables, Little Shop of Horrors, Into the Woods, Footloose, Fame, The Pajama Game, Half a Sixpence, Spring Awakening, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Grease.
Has anything ever happened to you, on-stage, that wasn’t in the script? I sneezed mid-sing once….
What musical moment first made you think, “I want to do that!”? There was no particular moment, I was born doing jazz hands.
What are you enjoying most about being part of Simply Theatre? Putting on a top notch standard production with a talented group of people who constantly keep me laughing.
What else do you do besides singing, dancing & acting? Absolutely nothing else – I even chose to do a degree in it.
