REBECCA JOY FLETCHER is a theater-maker, actor, singer, Jewish educator, and public speaking/leadership presence coach for a wide range of organizations and private clients. Originally ordained as a cantor, Rebecca now spends all her time touring, performing, and teaching.

Theater-maker highlights include her show Kleynkunst!, produced off Broadway by the National Yiddish Theater-Folksbiene; her Metropolis which premiered at La Vieille Grille in Paris; her Cities of Light, which has been presented at theaters around the world; and Ringing True, which premiered at the Miami Theater Center.

Rebecca’s grants and awards include a Theatre Communications Group-ITI grant for research and performances in Warsaw and a European Association for Jewish Culture grant for work in Paris.

Today, Rebecca also feels driven to create theater addressing the climate emergency…from a Jewish perspective.
