Elise is elated to be music-directing her first mainstage production, having previously music-directed numerous youth productions. A veteran of the stage, Elise's favorite past roles include Maleficent (The Descendants), Inga (Young Frankenstein), Dolly (Hello Dolly) and Rona (25th Annual...Bee.) While she loves performing, there is little so fulfilling as helping singers bring out their best voice and Elise looks forward to continuing working with singers by teaching voice this fall at Encore! Unending thanks to Ricky for this amazing opportunity; it has been an honor and a privilege, to the amazing cast and crew for their hard work and support, and to her wonderful family for always encouraging her musical passions. Thank you!!!
