Rachel Lockett is an actor, singer, and potato-lover, specifically fries. She is based in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area. She started singing at the age of 6 and she hasn’t stopped since, much to her parents’ horror and sleep schedule!
Rachel currently holds a B.A in Music from Goucher College and a Masters in Musical Theatre Studies from Temple University.
Rachel is no stranger to the stage. While she loves every story and role she has had the opportunity to play, some of her favorites are Sally Brown in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, Woman 2 in Songs for a New World, Gianetta in L’Elisir D’Amore (The Elixir of Love), and voice acting Senator Fipp and Soupy Sue in Urinetown.
As a performing artist, her ultimate goal is to make you, an audience member, experience something that you never felt before, to hear a story, to take you on an adventure, and to see the character go through their journeys.
Another goal she has is to play/be a princess because she believes that princesses come in all shapes and colors. Her being a black princess means that other girls can have that representation and feel included.
It's more than just wearing a pretty dress, though that is one of the biggest perks!
Outside of theatre, Rachel loves eating, hanging out with her friends, shopping, listening to K-pop, reading cheesy romance stories, and obsessing over the colour pink.
