Actor. Singer. Director
Emily decorating the sidewalk of Philadelphia
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 lives in Abingdon, VA 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, Soldier in Les Misérables, Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. One of her favorite roles was one she performed on Barter's Main Stage 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 in Stage II this spring. With the help of John Hardy, Katy Brown, and Carrie Smith, Emily is running toward the fear every day.
