Rachel has been a member of Cosmopolitan Players since 2011 when she played German spy Annabella Schmidt in The 39 Steps, and found the society to be really welcoming and supportive. Although this was the start of a series of roles which all involved her character dying! Her favourite role was playing the lovely, but ditsy, Alice in the Vicar of Dibley – a nice change from her professional role in human resources.
She also really enjoyed playing twins in the John Godber play, Muddy Cows, which earned her a well-deserved guild award. Rachel has also performed with Leeds Arts Centre and Leeds Children’s Theatre and took her first role as Stage Manager in 2018 for the Cos production of Blackadder II.
Rachel is always keen to encourage new members to get involved, whatever their experience, and promote the benefits of community involvement and joining a theatre family
