You found me!
I'm Rebecca Wahls, a director living just outside of Washington, DC, in Falls Church, VA. In between directing projects, I serve as co-producing Artistic Director of Who What Where Theater Collective, teach corporate improv workshops with Art Propel, and occasionally act in short films or on historic tours. I am proud to be an Artistic Associate with Acting for Young People, a non-profit children's theatre company located in Fairfax, VA, where I have played a key role in developing new programs, revitalizing the Professional Productions program, and writing adaptations of fairy tales and Shakespeare plays for the Advanced Actors' Showcase program. I also work at Studio Theatre in Washington, DC as the Executive Assistant & Artistic Associate.
Full plate? Maybe. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
I believe in the communal power of theatre: ensemble onstage and conversation offstage. I created Who What Where with Zachary Wilcox and Andrew Reid to give our generation a voice in the theatre. The stories we want to tell, the stories of us, won’t exist unless we write them. And who knows where the future of theatre lies? I think it’s a blend of traditional performance venues, quirky locations, and beyond - a place to tell your story. Make the weird relatable. That’ll be the title of my book.
