Andrea Emmes is a has been a voice over actor for 12 years, performer for over 20!
SAG - AFTRA
Andrea’s performing career goes back 20 years as she got her start in musical theatre, a member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA since the 90’s. She released her award winning, debut album, “I’m On My Way”, in 2008 and she headlined as a vocalist on the Vegas Strip for 19 months.
Transitioning to Voice Overs and Audiobooks just made sense. Andrea’s many character voices have been an asset in cartoons, commercials, video games and most recently in narrating Audiobooks. With 4 audiobooks under her belt (and 6+ more in the wings), Andrea is able to take her love of reading and creating new voices and carve out a nice niche for herself as a Young Adult Narrator.
When not performing, Andrea loves to play video games and has every gaming system out there!

Tonight we will hear about the upcoming play The Tower from special guests Maya Rook (Dramaturg) and Adam Scott Mazer (Playwright).
The Tower is a psychedelic journey into the history and mythology of the Donner Party, a group of snowbound pioneers who notoriously resorted to cannibalism to survive the brutal winter of 1846-47. Historical narrative collides with hallucinatory imagery to create a shifting landscape filled with the whispers of the past and the roar of the future. A vision of adolescent America: frostbitten, bloodstained, ravenous. Find out more at www.antimattercollective.org
