Academic Theatre


In addition to her work with Ripe Time, Rachel directs opera, music-theatre and multidisciplinary work as a freelance director.

She is strongly committed to training the theatre artists of tomorrow and regularly directs undergraduate productions to explore ensemble work and collaborative theatre making with young artists.  She is currently on faculty at Purchase College, SUNY in the Theatre and Performance Program in the Conservatory of Theatre Arts. These are a few of the projects she's created with the student actors, designers and stage managers at Purchase in recent years. Guest artist designers Jane Shaw, Obadiah Eaves, Stowe Nelson and Hannah Wasileski joined student BFA designers on these productions.
