Hi! I'm Retta! (she/her) I am an NYC based actor and singer. I recently graduated from Baldwin Wallace University with my BFA in Acting, as part of the class of 2022. My roots started in musical theatre, and I have since gained a special affinity for both classical theatre and newer plays, as well as on camera work. I especially love taking classic ingenue roles and finding deeper meaning and humanness in them, as well as crafting roles in new works.
Besides acting, I love upcycling clothes, growing my indoor garden, and watching old movies with my mom.
As artists, the world looks to us not only for entertainment, but for knowledge, community, and representation. Because of this, we hold an incredible responsibility to use our artistic platform and voices to create positive change, and represent the characters we portray with truth and dignity. And so, I approach acting with a combination of careful research and textual study, and with an open heart. I hope to create experiences for audiences that open their minds, and bring them to a place of empathy and understanding.
