Meet Emily

Emily Holland, daughter of Wendy and Brian, was born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin alongside her brother Sam. Emily grew up in a musically inclined family, and by the age of six, she had joined the Performers Workshop in DePere, WI where she participated in her first show, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat as part of the color chorus. Her love for theatre continued to grow as she entered middle school and was cast in her first role as Laurey in Oklahoma Jr. at the age of 13. Since then, she has taken every chance that has come her way to be up on the stage.

In high school, Emily participated in Next Stage, an all-star high school musical program where she not only furthered her study of acting, singing, and dancing, but also received experience with set building, props, costumes, and more. Emily was one of two student actors that was cast in Next Stage for each of its first four annual productions.

At the age of 17, Emily was accepted into the BFA Musical Theatre and Dance Minor program at the University of Wisconsin -Stevens Point, where her theatre training continues as she enters her junior year. 

Emily was cast in her first professional theatre gig at the age of 18 in Baileys Harbor, WI, as part of the Door Shakespeare acting troupe. Here, she was also an intern and learned every side of the theatre, including lighting, advertising, and yes, even laundry. The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry V played for three months, which also marks this experience as her first long-running gig.

Emily most recently played Katherine in Play-By-Play Theatre's Taming of the Shrew

When Emily is between theatre gigs, she enjoys learning (and adores her theatre program), reading, songwriting, and experiencing life. She hopes to one day travel the world with those she loves. Emily is releasing her first ever solo album, healed, on November 10, 2020.
