Becca Brazel is an actor from Chicago, IL. She graduated from St. Ambrose University with degrees in Theatre and Business Management.
During her time at St. Ambrose, Becca received two Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship nominations. The first was for the role of Miss Prism in The Importance of Being Earnest. During this performance, she also had the pleasure of acting alongside Broadway director, Philip Wm. McKinley (The Boy From Oz, Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark), who played Lady Bracknell. When she attended KCACTF Region 5, she also acted in a 10 minute scene directed by one of her peers, Robert Poston. The scene went on to compete in the finals where the actors got to perform in the Dowling Studio Theater at the Guthrie. The second nomination was for the role of Thea Elvsted in Hedda Gabler. When she attended the KCACTF acting competition that year, she advanced to the semi-final round.
Becca has spent the past two summers working with Mississippi Bend Players (MBP). During her time with MBP she was cast as Candy in Zombie Prom (directed by the previously mentioned Mr. McKinley), Blanche in Brighton Beach Memoirs, & Joanna Wilkes/Strange Woman in Big River. Behind the scenes, she also worked as a lighting designer and a theatre generalist intern with MBP.
