Cast & Creatives

Emma Riches

Emma graduated from Drama Studio London in July 2016. In her graduation performance she played Little Mermaid in Mermaid by Polly Teale, directed by Lea Anderson MBE. Since then she has been involved with several short films. Recently she played Marcella in The Feigned Courtesans (The Rose Playhouse) in a festival celebrating Female Restoration Playwrights.

Her credits whilst training include Wendla Bergmann in Spring Awakening, Lady Windermere in Lady Windermere’s Fan, Princess Rosamunde in The White Cat (Pantomime), Costard in Love’s Labour’s Lost and Nina in The Seagull.

This is Emma’s first UK Tour and she is thrilled to be playing Ben Elf. She has always had a love for children’s theatre and storytelling and until very recently worked as a Fairy Godmother in Training for Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Harrods. Although Emma is more used to performing in period gowns with lots of petticoats; she is thrilled that her height and ability to imitate children’s voices is finally being put to proper use.
