Emilee Clapp is a Manhattan-based actor, dancer, singer, and Very Loud but Very Short Person hailing from Tewksbury, MA. For as long as she can remember, Emilee has possessed an outstanding amount of kinetic energy that even medical professionals can’t explain. After a few years of life, her mother finally decided it was time for dance class. The rest is history (briefly described below).
Emilee was lucky enough to grow up in a theatre-rich area where, beginning at age 10, she performed in numerous community theatre and professional productions and trained at the Greater Boston Stage Company. During this time, she developed a sweet tooth for Kit Kat frozen yogurt and a desire to tell stories that inspire audiences and create change on any level.
Her love and passion for theatre brought her to Marymount Manhattan College, where she has spent the past four years in the BFA in Acting program with a minor in Musical Theatre. In her time at Marymount, she was lucky enough to have performed in numerous musicals and plays ranging from the works of Cole Porter to Shakespeare to Jason Robert Brown.
When not performing, you can find Emilee watching Desperate Housewives, pretending she’s a good cook (she’s not), obsessing over Lady Gaga while spilling tea with her pals, or arguing over whether it’s appropriate to wear socks to sleep (it is). She is also a summer camp counselor for young theatre lovers at her favorite place in the world, Camp Meraki!
This coming May, she’ll be graduating at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall and cannot wait to discover what lies beyond the hallowed halls of East 71st Street. She hopes you enjoy poking around her site because she had just as fun making it!
