"But her cast members at Summer Stock Stage know Emily Ristine Holloway as the stage actress who will direct them in the first locally produced performance of Rent July 23-26 at Park Tudor School."

The feature points out that, while best known for her tire commercials, Holloway is the founder of a youth theatre company, Summer Stock Stage. She says, "I love working with Tire Barn, but that's basically one day every two years. The whole process of theatre is exciting for me. And I love working with students because they come so much farther in the process than adults. They take more risks and experience more growth."
