Hi there! I'm Becki.
the quick & dirty:
East Coast & Southwest based • EMC • Performer & Improvisor
the less abridged:
I grew up in the suburbs of Philly and am a self-proclaimed middle child (I've got an older sister and a one-minute-younger twin brother, so technically I am!).
Since graduating from Temple University, I've worked all over the country and the globe. Notably, I was the ASM for the International Centennial Tour of West Side Story. During the 16-month tour, we performed in 26 cities in 18 countries across Europe, Asia, and even New Zealand - from Dublin to Tokyo and everywhere in between!
Recent performing credits include Indecent (Halina), As You Like It (Rosalind), The Importance of Being Earnest (Miss Prism) and The Winter's Tale (Paulina) with Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, Look Up: Tales of the Sky (Stella) & The Bremen Town Musicians (Harriet the Hound Dog) with The REV on Tour - fun fact, I've actually been to Bremen, Germany! - and Once Upon A Flame (Fairytale Characters) with The National Theatre for Children.
Recent stage management credits include The Polar Express (on a moving train!) w/ Rail Events Productions & Warner Bros. Inc, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, Bigfork Summer Playhouse, Creede Repertory Theatre, and Asolo Repertory Theatre.
You can usually find me practicing aerial (I'm learning trapeze and pole!), wandering around a local farmers market, or lost in a really good cup of coffee.
Thanks for stopping by!
Tune in every third Sunday of the month to listen to the Untamed Shrews: Women Talk Theatre podcast.
"Just listened to 'Showmances' and boy howdy do I look at a box of donuts differently!"
"I particularly like the balance between discussions about more serious and ore fun stories to interlude."
Catch me as Rosalind in Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival's video game adaptation of As You Like It, directed by James Cougar Canfield.
"Zaritsky’s deft navigation of Rosalind’s amorous love of Orlando and platonic love of Celia situates her as perhaps the best Rosalind I’ve seen."
- Cason Murphy in Shakespeare Bulletin
"You've never seen Shakespeare like this... Equipped with 16-bit animation and avatars... a nostalgic video game score... this film is sure to delight!"
Spreading (holiday) cheer as Mrs. Cratchit and Fan in Hank Curry's audio adaptation of A Christmas Carol, raising awareness for:
