She also has a recurring role on the Netflix show Ponysitters Club(airing in the US & South America).

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.

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….

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 customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’… hilarity ensues! Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a 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.

 

“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

WINNER – Fringe Festival Breakout Performance – BroadwayWorld.com Awards 2016
WINNER – Best Fringe Festival Production – BroadwayWorld.com Awards 2016

 

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 chimps! Adventures… follows on from the internationally successful Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl, and is perfect as a story in itself. Rebecca Perry’s spot-on comedic timing lends itself to a second story filled with relatable situations and over 20 characters in the Tanzanian jungle, all performed by Perry herself!

 

“A masterclass in solo performance. Delightfully quirky and magnificently clever.” – ★★★★ – Broadway Baby

“Bursting with talent and charm.” – The Scotsman

From Judy To Bette: The Stars of Hollywood

NOMINATED – Best Independent Production – BroadwayWorld.com Awards

 

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

 

“Perry has a gorgeous jazz voice, capable of Cole Porter-esque perkiness and soulful richness” 
– Broadway Baby

 

“[Perry] does not impersonate; she encapsulates… A smart, sharp portrait of four women who changed Hollywood performed by a smart, sharp performer…who sets the standard for such shows.” – The Slotkin Letter

 

 


 

Entertaining the Troops

 

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 “There are Fairies at the Bottom of My Garden”, the waltzy and comedic “The Yodelling Goldfish”, and the toe-tapping “Mad About the Boy”. With her jazzy voice and perfect 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.

 

“A lovely crooner, Perry can serenade like nobody’s business.” – Life With More Cowbell, Toronto
