Hi! I'm Retta! I am an actress and singer currently finishing my BFA in Acting at Baldwin Wallace University, 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. I especially love taking classic ingenue roles and finding deeper meaning and humanness in them, as well as crafting roles in new works. After I graduate in May, I'm moving to NYC to continue my career onstage and onscreen.
Besides acting, I love growing plants, sewing, messing around on photoshop, and spending time with my friends and family.
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.
