This is Emily’s 12th season with Mac-Haydn! However, this will be her first season as Props Designer. Emily has been in almost every aspect of the performing arts, from stage managing to acting, and even choreography! Regional credits: LITTLE WOMEN (Marmee), SOMETHING ROTTEN! (Choreographer), LES MISERABLES (Ensemble/Crew), SWEENEY TODD (Ensemble), CABARET (Frau. Kost/ Music Capt./ASM), GREATER TUNA (Assistant Director/SM), HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL (Martha/ Heathers U/S.) Emily would like to thank her sister Robyn for all the emotional support throughout the pandemic and her father Skip for always being the best practical joker. This season for her is dedicated to her Mom, Joan Spateholts, the longtime gardener of the Mac, who we lost in November 2020.
