About Florida Repertory Theatre
is thrilled to be reprising her favorite role and making her Florida Repertory debut with this production. Rebbekah has performed at theatres across America from Boston (A Civil War Christmas/Huntington) to Seattle (Maria/West Side Story/5th Avenue). A YoungArts award-winning writer, she graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor’s in English and Theatre. In addition to performing, Rebbekah is a tarot reader, producer, and author, whose poetry has been published in The Quaranzine Zine and Sixfold. She produced the forthcoming short films The Appraiser, and The Question, which she also wrote and stars in. With many thanks to her blood and chosen family, she dedicates this performance to the memories of her tía, Caridad Vega, a renowned rumba dancer, whose stories inspired Rebbekah to follow in her footsteps, and her Granny, Leila Alson, who gave her a love of musical theatre. Rebbekah hopes her work will inspire other mixed-race girls to realize that “there’s a place for us.” Connect with her on the web at www.RebbekahVegaRomero.com or on social media @RebbekahVR.
