About Brad Reinking
Brad Reinking is an award winning Theatre Maker. His work has been seen on some of the finest regional stages and concert venues in the country, and has been singled out as “magnetic”, “captivating”, and “electrifying”. Brad has spent the better part of a decade creating a unique and eclectic career that has seamlessly merged from onstage to the director’s chair to the classroom. Brad strives to lead with empathy, compassion, and respect in every department. He is a strong advocate and champion for diverse and inclusive theatre.
Brad studied acting at Idyllwild Arts Academy and attended two summer intensives at the prestigious Broadway Theatre Project before graduating with a BFA in Musical Theatre from The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. While there, he became an active member of the Boston professional theatre scene, appearing in workshops, readings and professional productions before graduating.

As an Educator, Brad has proudly served on the education staff at North Shore Music Theatre, Greater Boston Stage Company, and Riverside Theatre Works. His belief that no one is too young to be treated like a professional has made him an in-demand teacher, and his encyclopedic knowledge of college musical theatre programs has led him to teach his workshop “16 Bars or Bust!” to high school juniors and seniors all over the country. Brad is a passionate advocate for Theatre for Young Audiences and Family Theatre.
Brad splits his time between Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA. He is the proud partner to Andrew Sullivan and proud dog daddy to a beautiful 3 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Belle.
