Emily Padgett, currently starring as the good-girl Sandy in the touring production of Grease, sat down for a chat. (Yes, she wears wigs on stage.) She gave us the scoop on opening night in Orange County, what it's like to work with Taylor Hicks who plays Teen Angel and more.
Originally from Lewisville, North Carolina, Emily has always had a big-time love for performing. She grew up listening to Broadway cast albums her parents played around the house and since then, she's been hooked on theater. After studying dance and working in community theater, she moved to New York City to live the Broadway dream. And she IS living it. Emily has toured with the 25th anniversary production of CATS and also appeared in Legally Blonde as well as in Grease on Broadway.
We wish you all the best Emily!
