Actor. Singer. Director
Just hugging a tree!
A passionate actor, Buddhist, and fruitarian, Emily Grove began her artistic career as Native American #2 in Lawnton Elementary School's 4th grade production of Christopher Columbus. She decided to study at Elizabethtown College in Lancaster County, PA where she majored in Theatre Performance and English Literature. There she performed some roles including Ariel in The Tempest, Elizabeth Proctor in The Crucible, and a tribe member in Hair.
Emily and her Barter Player sisters
Emily currently works in Abingdon, VA at the Barter Theatre performing as a Barter Player Encore member, after completing two years as a Barter Player. During her time at Barter, she has died a lot onstage and off: Sadako in A Thousand Cranes, Leslie in Bridge to Terebithia, Mom in Frosty!, a student in Les Misérables, Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. One of her favorite roles was Ramona in The Wind Farmer (in which she did not die!). Emily just returned from the national tour of the Barter Player Encore production of Frosty!, and is preparing to perform Hamlet (more death!) in Stage II this spring, as well as perform with the Encore Improv Troupe. She will be performing on Barter's Main Stage of their spring musical, as well as in the new play The Starving at Barter's Stage II. With the help of John Hardy, Katy Brown, and Carrie Smith, Emily is running toward the fear every day.
