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.
Current projects include staging and choreographing Matilda for The Company Theatre, directing the world premiere of Jonathan, by Mary ElizaBeth Peters, for Moonbox Productions, and directing and choreographing Les Misérables for The Young Company at Greater Boston Stage Company. Up next, he is returning to The Hanover Theatre for his fifth season as Topper in A Christmas Carol.
Brad has performed, directed and choreographed at theatres all over the country, including North Shore Music Theatre, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, The Hanover Theatre, Lyric Stage Company, Wheelock Family Theatre, Moonbox Productions, Ocean State Theatre Company, Virginia Children's Theatre, Priscilla Beach Theatre, and Reagle Music Theatre.
In the past few years, Brad has quickly become one of the Northeast's most in-demand theatre educators. He has proudly served on the education staff at North Shore Music Theatre, Greater Boston Stage Company, Riverside Theatre Works, and Wheelock Family Theatre. In addition, he teaches dance and musical theatre workshops and master classes at studios across the country. His belief that no one is too young to be treated like a professional, 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 is currently based in Boston, MA where he lives with his Partner, Andrew, and their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Belle.
