Rachel Bland has been in love with theatre all of her life. New to Kansas City, Rachel is excited to join the talented team at Coterie Theatre while serving as the graduate assistant at the University of Central Missouri where she is earning her MA in theatre. Before making her way to Missouri, Rachel taught high school theatre, served as a teaching artist for various children's theatres, and acted her way across Arkansas for six years. She is a proud Texan native and holds a BFA in theatre performance from Ouachita Baptist University. In her free time she likes to read, watch movies with her husband, eat tacos, and cuddle with her cat Princess Buttercup.
