An interview with Emma Hough aged 18 (today!), ensemble

Is this your first show with Simply Theatre?
No, this is my fifth show. I’ve been in Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Little Shop of Horrors and A Streetcar Named Desire.

Did you know the show before you auditioned?
yes, I saw it and was fixed on the music and storyline.

What attracted you to the show that made you want to audition?
well, first and foremost the music. it’s so amazing.

What is your favourite part of the show and why?
I wish I was a boy in this show so I could be in my favourite song ‘Bitch of a Living’ (maybe i’ll sneak in) but my favourite part to perform is (as Steve calls it) ‘Totally Fecked’

Favourite show you’ve been in and part you played?
releasing my inner black woman as Mabel in Fame

What’s the most embarrassing costume you’ve had to wear?
a wardrobe. no joke.

Why do you think people should come to see the show?
to see some truly incredible talent from the cast, and become obsessed with the show as we all have. don’t miss out!
