Raechel has been a passionate actor and arts educator for over ten years. She began acting at a young age which eventually progressed to her earning a BFA in the York University Acting Conservatory program. After graduation, she launched into her first professional performance in Canadian Stage’s Shakespeare in High Park in their productions of Hamlet (directed by Birgit Schreyer Duarte) and All’s Well That End’s Well (directed by Ted Witzel). Since then, she has done several short films, Fringe productions (Montreal, London, Toronto), musicals and commercials. Most recently, Raechel had just finished a production of Oh What A Lovely War at Hart House Theatre and was just about to begin rehearsals on her first opera with Mightier Productions. Alongside her acting work, Raechel feeds her love for arts education by directing, writing and choreographing a variety of children’s theatre in the GTA for a variety of ages. She also extends her passion to chaperoning young actors’ onset and in theatre. Raechel looks forward to getting back to work and adjusting to the new challenges coming our way! She hopes that through her classes, she can provide a space where young actors can find their strength and engage with their sense of play—even if that means falling on their faces a few times! She feels so excited and lucky to be able to join such an incredibly driven group of actors at Milne’s Studio.
