Julianne Schaub is a Philadelphia based theatre artist and is thrilled to be working with ERP once again. Her first production with them was their 2017 Philly Fringe piece Suicide Stories, she fell in love with the herd and all that they do. She has also performed regionally at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, Hedgerow Theatre and at the Please Touch Museum Playhouse- all of which have deepened her love for story-telling, which is what drew her to the piece she is directing for The Fifth Vital Sign.

“I believe that when you see a piece of theatre, you are seeing the world from a new perspective. You are understanding the world of another person outside yourself and are able to experience what they are going through, their feelings. Theatre creates empathy-the ability to feel for another person- and I think that’s necessary.”
