Photos by Chris Jackson/The Register-HeraldRebekah New, a Theatre West Virginia regular, considers her role as Mary Poppins to be one of her most challenging yet.

Rebekah says she is thrilled to be performing in her 11th show at Theatre West Virginia for her seventh season there.

She has previously performed in TWV shows such as Willy Wonka, Rocket Boys, and Annie Get Your Gun. Recently, Rebekah played Mary Poppins in Woodrow Wilson High School’s production of Mary Poppins.

In April, Rebekah performed at Carnegie Hall for the New York Pops Gala honoring Cyndi Lauper, where she performed with Cyndi Lauper, as well as various other Broadway stars and pop singers. This summer, she’ll be attending Camp YATC in California. Besides theatre, Rebekah enjoys music, dance, painting, and being outdoors.

“I’m so excited to be performing in Hatfields and McCoys this year,” Rebekah said. “This will be my fourth time being in the show, and the second time I’ll be playing Allifair McCoy. She is definitely one of my favorite roles to play and I’m sure this will be a great seventh season for me!”
