Cast Interview: Emma Harding

Kicking off our cast interviews, meet the lovely Emma Harding aged 17 playing Martha Bessel.


Is this your first show with Simply Theatre?
No, this is my third. I was also in ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’ and ‘Little Shop of Horrors’.

Did you know the show before you auditioned?
Yeah, I had seen it performed a couple of times.

What attracted you to the show that made you want to audition?
The Music! I would listen to half the soundtrack if it wasn’t part of a show.

What is your favourite part of the show and why?
Totally Fucked, because I think it’s just as fun to watch as it is to perform.

Favourite show you’ve been in and part you played?
Serena in ‘FAME!’ (and Martha in Spring, obviously)

What’s the most embarrassing costume you’ve had to wear?
A leaf costume… made out of leaves.

Why do you think people should come to see the show?
Because everyone is super talented and this is the most excited I have ever been about a show ever, so you should be excited to.
