Rachel Drake


Rachel Drake appears in the role of Miss Honey in Fort Myers Theatre’s production of Matilda the Musical.

Rachel’s prior stage credits include LeFou in Beauty and the Beast, Maria in The Sound of Music and the Sad Bride “Dancestor” in The Addams Family Musical, which was Rachel’s first production since high school “if you don’t count the daily shows I put on in my living room with my four kiddos.”

While at Fort Myers’ Evangelical Christian School, Rachel appeared as Chava in Fiddler on the Roof, Leisl in The Sound of Music, Cinderella in Cinderella and Billie in Babes in Arms.

Drake, whose family is rooted in music, was introduced to Fort Myers Theatre a couple of years ago when her girls saw a production and wanted to give it a try themselves. Since then, they have been in many productions, and theater has become a huge part of Rachel’s life once more.

Off the stage, Rachel and husband, Chris, have four children, ranging from ages 2 to 8. Rachel is also a birth doula, lactation counselor and substitute teacher. She was a Pre-K special needs and Kindergarten teacher prior to working from home.
