Emily Helton is a freshman Theatre major at UT. She started off the year as “Edna Krabapple”/Chorus in the Lab Theatre’s production of Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play, and has had a difficult time leaving the theatre ever since. Emily hopes that her education at UT will prepare her for a graduate degree in theatre so that she can frame it on the wall and stare at it while she eats leftovers and emails theatre companies about that job they said they would get back to her about. Emily would like to thank her parents for supporting her and her sister for becoming a doctor so they have at least one child to talk about. Particularly warm shout outs to Casey Sams, Carol Mayo Jenkins, and Maranda DeBusk for being true educators and strong women. Emily is thrilled to close out her freshman year with such an amazing production!
