Becky Beth Benedict grew up as a farmer’s daughter but always knew that her tribe was in the theater.  She studied theater at the Unversity of North Dakota, where she graduated magna cum laude. Known to her students and colleagues as “Ms. B3”, Becky Beth Benedict has worked as an actor, a director, a radio announcer, improvisational artist, and a voiceover artist in the entertainment and media industries. In addition to teaching theater at MacDuffie, she directs and produces Fall Play, Winter Musical, and Spring Play.  Some of her favorite musicals and plays include Rent, Metamorphoses, Cabaret, Hairspray, Hamilton, The Addams Family, and Mamma Mia. When not at school, she relishes attending Broadway shows in New York City, cosplaying at Renaissance Faires, and tinkering outdoors in her garden.
