About

Rebecca Perry is an actor, singer and writer based in Toronto. She has worked with a variety of companies across North America in theatre, film, television and voiceover. Recently she played lead roles in the feature films Forest Fairies alongside Simon Callow (now available on Amazon Prime UK & US) and Best Friend From Heaven, alongside Kris Kristofferson (Amazon Prime UK). Perry also has a recurring role on the TV show Ponysitters Club (airing in the US & South America). This year, she starred in the web-series A Gay Victorian Affair, which releases this spring.

Perry has provided voices for the multiple characters in the animated feature films Duck and Donk and Fast and Furriest. She also voiced two characters in the forthcoming cartoon series Emojiville.

At the end of 2017, Perry toured with Roseneath Theatre's Dora award-winning, and recently published play The Money Tree, which travelled to 15 states in the US in fall of 2017, including a residency at The Smith Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Perry was also part of the 2016 winter tour around Ontario.

Perry’s multiple award-winning solo show Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl (★★★★★ The Nouse UK) toured to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, where it sold out its entire run at the prestigious Gilded Balloon, and even had a celebrity attendee: Anthony Rapp of Broadway's Rent! The success at Edinburgh led to a regional tour of England in 2016, and the show will tour the UK again in fall 2018. The Canadian premiere for the show was at the Rose Theatre in Brampton that same year, and since then Confessions… has toured theatres around Ontario and the Maritimes, including performances at the Sudbury Theatre Centre, the Lighthouse Festival Theatre, the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, and the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. The show goes back on the road, touring again to the East Coast this spring, travelling around Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Awards include both Outstanding Performer & Outstanding Production from NOW Magazine, and Best Fringe Festival Production (Play) from BroadwayWorld. Receiving critical acclaim wherever it goes, the show has been profiled on Global TV, featured in podcast & radio interviews, and can be seen on TV across the country – Bell Fibe TV Canada taped the show live in front of a studio audience for their program On Stage On Demand.

The sequel, Adventures of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl (★★★★★ TWISI), was invited to return to the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, continuing Perry's intercontinental success, and even leading to a performance at the Belltable Theatre in Limerick, Ireland. Adventures recently performed at The Rose Theatre, Classic Theatre Cobalt and the Lighthouse Festival Theatre, all being return trips after the success of Confessions.... Awards include Best Fringe Festival Production (Play) and Fringe Festival Breakout Performance (Female), both from BroadwayWorld.

Perry's most recent solo show, From Judy to Bette: The Stars of Old Hollywood, which premiered at the prestigious Next Stage Theatre Festival, sold out its entire run, garnering a feature from CBC Radio, who also aired songs from the show. It began its professional touring life in 2017, performing in Northern Ontario with Tour de Fort and the Sioux-Hudson Entertainment Series. The show has a regional tour of England in April 2018, travelling to five theatres, and then is heading to Nova Scotia in May, before returning to the UK for another tour of multiple theatres in the fall.

Perry was awarded a 2016 Harold Award, celebrating both her creative and entrepreneurial spirit and her understanding of the business side of acting that has helped her successfully create and perform her three respective solo shows that she tours across the globe.

Show synopsis

Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, and Betty Hutton: trailblazers who refused to be “just another ingenue” during the golden age of cinema. An evening of scandalous headlines and marvelous melodies. Critically-acclaimed Toronto performer Rebecca Perry takes to the stage to look at the lives of the ladies who broke convention and started something bigger, perhaps, than even they knew. With this affecting show, Perry shows that she not only creates her own marvelous characters, but beautifully inhabits those characters – perhaps even larger still than her own – that inspire her.

Press quotes

“Perry has a gorgeous jazz voice, capable of Cole Porter-esque perkiness and soulful richness” - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby
“Perry doesn't do impersonations … she channels the women” - Mooney on Theatre

Show synopsis

Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the eccentric customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’. Hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, life lessons and even a bit of romance. Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a comedic storm that you won’t want to miss! Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl is the internationally successful show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

Press quotes

“Impeccable comic timing and faultless delivery. Perry is an animated and engaging performer.” - ★★★★★ - The Nouse UK
“Clever, amusing and wonderfully executed… I would highly recommend you see it.” - Arts Award Voice
“Her comedic timing is spot on, her acting is superb as she slips in and out of characters, and her singing is pitch perfect. The description for the show says that it’s suitable for ages 9-99 and I think that’s true.” - Mooney on Theatre
“Loved every minute of Rebecca Perry’s “Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl.” What a talented, generous artist. And, what pipes! Even bought the CD.” - NNNN - Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
“This is solo show performance at its best, with Perry rolling out a cast of characters in Joanie’s world like a wild kingdom field guide. I dare you not to fall in love with Joanie Little – and, by extension, Rebecca Perry.” - Life With More Cowbell
Sold out in more than 20 cities internationally!

Out of the coffee shop and into the jungle! Joanie Little proceeds to follow her anthropologist dreams with a job at The Jane Goodall Institute in Tanzania! This new, standalone story continues the saga of the “Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl”, bringing yet more caffeinated fun – this time with danger, romance and chimps! Adventures… follows on from the internationally successful Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl, and is perfect as a story in itself.

Entertaining the Troops Logo

Show synopsis

A brand new one-woman musical set in 1942 London while WW2 rages on. Tony Award-winning Canadian performer Beatrice Lillie tours the world providing entertainment to the troops through her songs, sketches, parodies and risqué lyrics! Watch out fellas, she sings like Vera Lynn and is funnier than Bob Hope! Let her enthrall you with such numbers as the witty "Fairies at the Bottom of My Garden", the comedic "Yodelling Goldfish", and the toe-tapping "Mad About the Boy". With her jazzy voice and comic timing, Perry brings to life the forgotten legacy of one of Canada's legendary wartime entertainers. Let the romance of the era wash over you.
