In the fall of 2017, Perry toured with Roseneath Theatre's Dora award-winning, recently published play "The Money Tree", which travelled to 15 states in the US, including a residency at The Smith Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Perry was also part of the 2016 winter tour around Ontario. Perry’s multiple award-winning solo show "Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl" (★★★★★ The Nouse UK) toured to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, where it sold out its entire run at the prestigious Gilded Balloon Teviot, and even had a celebrity attendee: Anthony Rapp of Broadway's "Rent!" and "Star Trek: Discovery". The success at Edinburgh led to a regional tour of England in 2016, and the show will tour the UK again in fall 2018. The Canadian premiere for the show was at the Rose Theatre in Brampton that same year, and since then Confessions... has toured theatres around Ontario and the Maritimes, including performances at the Sudbury Theatre Centre, the Lighthouse Festival Theatre, the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts, the Chester Playhouse in Nova Scotia, The Arden Theatre in Alberta, and the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay, Newfoundland.

Receiving critical acclaim wherever it goes, the show has been profiled on Global TV, featured in podcast & radio interviews, and can be seen on TV across the country – Bell Fibe TV Canada taped the show live in front of a studio audience for their program "On Stage On Demand". The sequel, "Adventures of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl" (★★★★★ TWISI), was invited to return to the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, continuing Perry's intercontinental success, and even leading to a performance at the Belltable Theatre in Limerick, Ireland. Adventures recently performed at The Rose Theatre, Classic Theatre Cobalt and the Lighthouse Festival Theatre, and has an upcoming show at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts, all being return trips after the success of Confessions... Awards include Best Fringe Festival Production (Play) and Fringe Festival Breakout Performance (Female), both from BroadwayWorld. Perry's most recent solo show, "From Judy to Bette: The Stars of Old Hollywood" (★★★★★ MusicalTalk), which premiered at the prestigious Next Stage Theatre Festival, sold out its entire run and garnered a feature from CBC Radio, which also aired songs from the show. It began its professional touring life in 2017, performing in Northern Ontario with Tour de Fort and the Sioux-Hudson Entertainment Series. Since then, and now a full-length show, it has toured to sixteen regional theatres across six counties of England in 2018, and also played twice in the East Coast. Following the footsteps of Perry's first two shows, it played at the Rose Theatre, Brampton just before heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a critically acclaimed and highly successful run at the Gilded Balloon's newest venue, the Patter Hoose. A larger production for residencies is due to debut for a two-week run at the Sudbury Theatre Centre in early 2020. More performances are under discussion for venues around the world. Perry was awarded a 2016 Harold Award in Toronto, celebrating both her creative and entrepreneurial spirit and her understanding of the business side of acting that has helped her successfully create and perform her three respective solo shows that she tours across the globe.
