Rita Baxter has always had performing in her blood. She started in choir in elementary school but, really caught the acting bug in high school, taking drama classes and performing in school plays. After school she took a hiatus from the stage to find her way in life, eventually landing in the telecommunications industry. Looking to develop and grow, Rita chose to pursue further education attending the University of Phoenix. While working full time she was able to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and a Master’s Degree in Management. Thankfully she was able to make her way back to the stage several years ago ultimately joining the Edmonds Driftwood Players family. She feels very blessed and honored to be a part of this theater group and looks forward to many years to come.
