Emma Stanley Still Playing “Superstar” 14 Years Later
Emma Stanley graduated from MDI High School in 2005. During her time at the school, she played trumpet in the band. As a member of the band, she played "Jesus Christ Superstar" when the basketball teams ran out onto the court. 14 years later she's still playing "Superstar", this time touring the country.
According to an article in the Portland Press Herald, Stanley is on tour with the 50th anniversary production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical “Jesus Christ Superstar,” playing trumpet and keys in the show’s 11-person orchestra.
Stanley graduated from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore in 2009, where she studied classical trumpet. She worked for a year playing in the production orchestra for the Royal Caribbean Cruise line. She then toured the country with productions of “Spamalot,” in two stints for a total of more than three years and some 650 shows, and “Annie,” for a year before joining the orchestra of Jesus Christ Superstar, which runs through August 2020.
