Brad Reinking (He/Him) 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 starring as Lonny Barnett in Rock of Ages at The Company Theatre, reprising his award-winning performance as Frank 'N' Furter in The Rocky Horror Show at Wagon Wheel Theatre, and directing the world premiere of Jonathan at Moonbox Productions. This summer he directed and choreographed The Wizard of Oz for Riverside Theatre Works and was the Choreographer and Movement Director for Peter & the Starcatcher at Greater Boston Stage Company's Summer Festival.
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.
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 is currently based in Boston, MA where he lives with his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Belle.
