REBECCA SPAFFORD is indebted to Oberon, King of the Fairies, for introducing her to Colorado theatre over 20 years ago; it’s a story that continues to unfold. Rebecca has worked with David Bowie, Mickey Mouse, Big Bird, and Cirque du Soleil, and has also toured with Yo Gabba Gabba and SuperWhy. OpenStage is her creative home. Some of her favorite acting roles are Agnes in Bug, Karen in August: Osage County, Tanya Shepke in The North Plan and Jo/Mae West in Dirty Blonde. She thinks picking her favorite design credits is like picking her favorite children, but she can’t wait to get her hands on Hedwig And The Angry Inch! Rebecca is honored to have received the Colorado Theatre Guild’s Henry Award for Outstanding Costume Design (Tier 2) for Dangerous Liaisons, The Crucible, and Murder on the Orient Express, all with OpenStage. Her favorite recognition is receiving the OpenStage Founders' Award, which is awarded for outstanding long-term contributions to the Company.
