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.

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.
