Melissa Bair-  Melissa has been a part of the Columbus theatre scene for many years as an actor, director, Producing Director and sitting on the Board of Directors for MadLab Theatre. She and Michelle have worked together for many years and eMBer was born out of a mutual desire to feature the kind of works that weren't readily being featured by other companies...a desire to be a landing place for amazing female artists who want their own story told on stage...and a place all audiences can come to appreciate the female experience.

Michelle Batt - Michelle has been in Columbus Theatre for many years and has done pretty much every role from Board Member to Stage Hand. Most of this time was spent alongside Melissa helping to cultivate the legacy of MadLab Theatre before leaving in 2016. Michelle is currently working as a Company member at Actors Theatre, Columbus. eMBer came to fruition through a desire to provide a place for work that features strong women characters that represent every woman. eMBer wants to reach the community of artists ready to create compelling work that is not always produced and gives a profound message.
