Emma Rosenthal
A proud graduate of Northwestern University and card-carrying member of Actor’s Equity who stands at a mighty 5’0” in socks, Emma made Chicago her home base in 2014. 

While in college, she had the good fortune to play a wide variety of roles, not only at Northwestern but also on regional stages in Chicago and the Berkshires. 

Since becoming a real life human adult (aka “graduating”), Emma has been seen on stages across the country, from Chicago to Washington DC to Boston to New York City. For a more comprehensive look at what she’s been up to (and what’s coming up next), check out the NEWS and RESUME pages!

When not on stage, Emma is an enthusiast of baking, arts-and-crafts, and space exploration. She has a passion for her green KitchenAid mixer, dresses with pockets, yoga pants, cheese, tea, iced coffee, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, lip balm, birds, books, attempting to bring snail mail back into fashion, songs, stories, stargazing, adventures, and good company.
