Emily Baker is a well-known face to the Ashtabula Arts Center, working both on stage and behind the table for almost 10 years. Emily is currently a candidate for a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Music Theater with a Directing Emphasis at The Boston Conservatory. Recent work at the AAC includes West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat this summer. Emily uses this experience on stage and behind the table to her advantage when working with kids, teens, and adults alike. Emily specializes in audition prep, scene study, and monologue coaching, using variations of Meisner, Viewpoints, and Linklater acting methods to help students connect with their work and create a cathartic and honest experience for both the actor and the audience.
