Rachel Womble is a New York City based singer and actress, originally from a little town called Sherman, Texas. She is a proud alumna of Interlochen Arts Academy, Rice University, and New York University Steinhardt. Her time at NYU was especially well spent, earning her first New York City credits. These included Alaura in City of Angels, Kim in Beguiled Again: The Songs of Rodgers and Hart, and her favorite, Julie Jordan in Carousel.
Professionally, Rachel has been fortunate to continue taking her career to new heights…literally! She just wrapped up a year playing Glinda in the national tour of The Wizard of Oz, flying into cities all across North America. Rachel’s portrayal of the good witch received much critical acclaim including this statement from The Boston Globe, “Rachel Womble’s Glinda is a gas, about as far from Billie Burke’s queenly imperiousness as you can get. Saucy and snarky, blending elements of Kristin Chenoweth’s Galinda from “Wicked’’ with traces of Elizabeth Banks’s Avery Jessup from “30 Rock,’’ Womble’s Glinda appears to be vying for a name change to Glinda the Bad Witch, or at least the Naughty Witch.” Broadway World also said, “Rachel Womble proved to be a fantastic singer, and gave a performance that’s quite perfect for the picture-perfect goodie-goodie Glinda.”
Favorite regional roles include Philia in Forum, Audrey Williams in Hank Williams: Lost Highway under the direction of Tony-nominated Randal Myler, and Martha in 1776. You can also see her network television debut on Law and Order SVU!
