Rachel Donahue is an actor, model, and electronic music artist based in New York City. Along with receiving her BFA in Theatre Arts from Boston University in 2016, she also graduated from the Accademia Dell’Arte in Arezzo, Italy, where she learned the foundations of Physical Theatre, Improvisation and Medieval Comedy.
Her favorite Theatrical credits include “Christina” in Red Light Winter, “The Duchess” in The Duchess of Malfi, and originating the role of “Sue McGovern” in the ArtsImpulse nominated production of The Whitmores.
Favorite film credits include All in Time, Major Arcana, and playing the lead role of Elysia in the award winning horror short Elysia , where she took home the Best Actress Award at the NJ Horror Con Film Festival.
Rachel’s training also extends across the pond and into England, where she received an Award in Sound Engineering and Electronic Music Production at the Point Blank Music School in London. She has implemented this knowledge into her 80’s inspired, synthesized music which she shares on Spotify, Apple Music, and on her instagram, @raybanshades.
And when she’s is not auditioning and producing her own music, Rachel can be found being silly at the Peoples Improv Theatre, where she takes regular Improv classes and participates in jams and performances.
Rachel continues to persevere in the arts, both in person and online, and looks forward to making many more creations in this coming year!
