“Awww, been filming many new projects…so looking forward to sharing them with you soon,” she wrote alongside the photo.

Deaf West Theatre was founded in Los Angeles in 1991, and their website says that they are “committed to innovation, collaboration, training and activism.”

“Deaf West is the artistic bridge between the Deaf and hearing worlds.”


Fans were super excited to see something new from the star, after waiting patiently to see what her next career move will be.

“Way to go Emma!” one fan said, while another chimed in: “Whoo!! Can’t wait!”

Others commented on how stunning she looked in the photo.

“I say it all the time, but I love your natural hair,” one said.

“Love the dress you’re wearing!” a second person added.

Emma Memma

This comes after Emma shared a first look at her Emma Memma character, which will be focused on dance, sign language and animals.

Emma is known for being an ally for the Deaf community, as well as being passionate about supporting organisations that protect Australian wildlife, so her new character ties these interests together nicely.

On Monday, the former Wiggles star posted a picture of Emma Memma on Instagram, a cartoon version of Emma painted by Australian artist Kerrie Hess. The star teased that big things were on the horizon in the caption, writing: “Emma Memma Monday. Costume coming soon…”

Fans were delighted, with one saying, “She’s so cute! I can see this character going places.”

One person called the character “gorgeous”, while another thought it was “beautiful”.
