Isolation Interviews: Emmie - Carpe Diem Emmie

Next up I spoke with the wonderful theatre and lifestyle blogger Emmie who runs the blog Carpe Diem Emmie. She's a fantastic human and a superb blogger. Check out her site here

Q - What was the first show that you remember seeing?
A - Oh, good question - my most vivid memory from one of my first west end productions is Kiss Me Kate. Locally I believe it was Annie.

Q - What inspired you to get into blogging about theatre?
A - I was working as a Freelance Dance Artist and I already had my blog (but it was more Lifestyle based) back in 2014. I wasn’t getting that much work and I wanted to be able to still be a part of something I was passionate about whilst moving careers. I fused blogging and theatre together and haven’t looked back since, it’s good to still have those contacts I made in a professional capacity.

Q -  Whose performances/productions have had the biggest impact on you?
A - There’s been many over the years but a few that stick with me for different reasons are Mary Poppins, Rent and Dear Evan Hansen. I have not felt the way I did during those shows with others.

Q - What is your favourite musical movie?
A - RENT - always Rent. It takes me back to my college years where I first discovered and became obsessed with it. There’s no other musical movie that can compete with it in my eyes.

Q -  What are your favourite show tunes?
A - Seasons Of Love - Rent
Defying Gravity - Wicked
You Will Be Found - Dear Evan Hansen
Times Are Hard For Dreamers - Amelie
One Day More - Les Mis

Q -  What are your favourite theatres to visit?
A - I’d have to say all of the ones in the East and West Midlands, we have fantastic theatres in our regions! Curve Theatre is my hometown theatre though.

Q -  Away from the theatre what are your other favourite hobbies?
A - I enjoy reading, I work in a school so I’m passionate about the importance of education and a child’s mental wellbeing. I also enjoy travelling and exploring the outdoors.

Q - Can you tell us something we might not know about you?
A - I guess that I used to be a Freelance Dance Artist for 2 years where I did lots of work with various dance organisations and in local schools.

I'd like to thank Emmie for her time and for taking part. Please visit her website you can follow her on Twitter
