An actress is to return to her hometown and perform for the first time in her career.

Rebecca Fenwick, 36, grew up in Bridlington and is now an established actress doing a range of productions including Heartbeat, Emmerdale and Prime Suspect.

She has been nominated for Best Fringe Performance at the Manchester Theatre Awards 2013 and was also a nominee for the Best Actress at Buxton Festival Fringe 2013.

Rebecca, now based in Manchester, has been performing the Spoonface Steinberg for more than two years now and has been longing to return home and perform.

She has nowbeen given the chance to perform the play at St Peter’s Catholic Church Hall in January.

She said: “I’m really looking forward to coming back to perform in Bridlington.

“It means a lot to perform in front of my family and friends. It is something I have been wanting to do for a long time though I’ve not had the opportunity to do so before now.”

The 36-year-old has played a variety of roles since she burst onto the scene and that is the way she likes it.

Rebecca has recently appeared on Channel 5 in Fred and Rose: House of Horrors and is currently filming a new gritty and moving documentary about Annabelle Forest, who she plays.

She said: “I love playing different roles to give me a test. I believe it would be boring having to play a similar role. I have yet to play a villain which I am eager to do, I am always the victim!”

Rebecca feels she wants to now test her abilities to a new level by playing voiceover roles in productions. She is in the process of tweaking her accents and a production company has shown interest in her already.

She has just finished touring a comedy double bill with Freerange Theatre Company; ‘The Wake’, a fast paced comedy set at a wake (surprisingly), and ‘Philippa and Will are in a Relationship’ which is based on Facebook.

She was also work with a children’s theatre company called 2 Boards & a Passion, appearing in their theatre show of ‘Winter Song’ which is about a little girl who embarks on a woodland adventure to find the winter song.

The Spoonface Steinberg production is scheduled to take place on January 17 2015 at Our Lady and St Peter’s Catholic Church Hall at 3pm. Tickets are available at
