Emily Helton 18is a senior in the undergraduate Theatre program and is thrilled to be returning to the mainstage for her second production of A Christmas Carol! She can say with utmost confidence that this is her absolute favorite story of all time, and she is honored to contribute to its retelling in any way she can. When not in rehearsals or frantically emailing professors for deadline extensions, Emily can be found at Knoxville Children’s Theatre teaching and playing with Knoxville’s youth. Because of this, she would like to give a particularly warm shout out to all her little Cratchits, who never failed to remind her what Christmas is all about. Also, thanks to her Mr. Cratchit, Collin, for his warmth, patience, and weird jokes. To Mamaw, Papaw, Mom, Dad, Erin, Tanner, and Duncan, she gives her all her love and would like to say, of course, “Good beer matters!” MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS.
