Web-extra (April 7, 2016): Around Town: A Hintonburgher hits The Gladstone stage this Month;
Spotlight on a Local Actor.

Hintonburgher Rachel Eugster joins Bear and Company in their upcoming production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? coming to The Gladstone Theatre April 6th to 16th. Rachel is playing Martha in the show.

An actor and lyric soprano, Rachel Eugster is comfortable in a wide range of musical and theatrical genres. South of the border, she originated leads in a musical comedy adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, the Arthurian drama Avalon; and Conventional Behavior, a send-up of science fiction conventions.

In Ottawa, Rachel has appeared in The Walk (Moon Dog Productions), in Momma’s Boy at the 2011 Fringe Festival, in the Gladstone’s Farndale Christmas Carol, and as soprano soloist with various choirs and orchestras. Rachel has served as music director for Salamander Shakespeare Co. and GNAG Theatre, and is an artist in residence at Parkdale United Church.

Rachel recently appeared as Putana in Bear & Co.’s ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore, where she also served as music director. Rachel was also music director for their production of As You Like It, and will return to music direct their upcoming production of The Taming Of The Shrew in April/May 2013.

Rachel trained with Wayne Conner at the Peabody Conservatory (Master of Music, Applied Voice), and with Mary Burgess at Marlboro College (Honors BA, Music and Theater). She also holds an AFTRA Conservatory Certificate.

Details on the play:
This dark, quick-witted, comedy-drama portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and ardent games. By the evening’s end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years. Edward Albee’s masterwork Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? still holds audiences spellbound, half a century after it first premiered on Broadway.
