Aubri O’Connor is co-founder, co-producer, and artistic director for Nu Sass Productions.

Aubri studied theater at Oberlin College (’04), where the esteemed group OMTA taught her more than she knew she would need in her professional career.
Aubri is indebted to the love and support of her family, especially her father. She would never have made it here without you all.


Emily Todd is co-founder and producing director emeritus for Nu Sass Productions.

Emily studied theater and psychology at the University of Virginia, where she helped run the largest on-campus student theater organization, in addition to working in the department. Emily believes in the power of art to inspire, connect, and transform each of us.

Nu Sass Productions strives to encourage women in all aspects of theater, especially in those roles traditionally dominated by men. Nu Sass seeks to offer women opportunities to expand the roles they take on in the theater and try new things. Nu Sass explores how putting female actors into roles originally written for men can change the overall experience for the audience. Above all, Nu Sass aims to create engaging, thought-provoking art while being a responsible local and global citizen.

Nu Sass Productions was founded by Aubri O’Connor and Emily Todd in 2009.
