Meet Rachel Dingle.

Rachel Dingle is a theatre producer, an arts and culture tour de force based in Southend-on-Sea in Essex pioneering shows and events for the local community.

In our interview I created her fantasy cultural year from her answers to 10 easy questions and we played the This or That game.

Introducing the irrepressible Rachel Dingle, the dynamo behind Show Up Productions!

While some were perfecting their banana bread recipes during the first lockdown, Rachel was busy founding Show Up! Southend, proving that creativity knows no bounds – even in the face of a pandemic.

By day, she's weaving magic in the world of theatre as a costume and wardrobe guru, and by night, she's concocting theatrical masterpieces of her own.

But Rachel's talents don't stop there – she's also a budding playwright and event producer, spreading joy and laughter wherever she goes. And boy, does she have a knack for it! ... Just ask her friends:

"Your responses can be quite withering," Jack confesses, though we suspect it's all in good fun.

"It's good to have a designer that can actually design," praises Bob, recognising Rachel's exceptional skills.

"Feminist and ex-Christian? Do you have any friends?" jokes Paul, but we all know Rachel's charm is irresistible.

"She's very gifted," exclaims Simon from Facebook, echoing what we all secretly know.

"Look at her, she looks about four," teases Imelda, but hey, age is just a number when you've got talent like Rachel's.

"Withering is a superb description of you. I doff my cap to whomsoever put their finger on as defining a characteristic as that," quips Jolyon, clearly impressed by Rachel's wit.

"You're the most chilled dresser ever," admires Phil, recognising Rachel's effortless style.

From online murder mysteries to amateur pantos, Rachel's creative endeavours are as diverse as they are delightful. Her projects, like "Christmas From Scratch" and "The Plot Thickens," have garnered thousands of views and left audiences clamouring for more.

And let's not forget her ventures beyond the stage – from running SubtlTee, her positive slogan tee business, to founding Stage Babies after a particularly hilarious incident with a fake baby onstage. Rachel's ingenuity knows no bounds!

So, if you're looking for a dose of excitement, a touch of the unexpected, and a whole lot of Rachel's signature charm, look no further than Show Up Productions.

With Rachel at the helm, you're guaranteed a theatrical experience like no other. So what are you waiting for? Come on, Show Up, and join the fun!
