Reed Theatre Alumni


Reed faculty join recent Reed graduates
in Manhattan, June 2018.

Reed Theatre graduates use their liberal arts theatre training in a variety of ways. After graduation, students who have gone on to robust careers in emergency medicine, law, library science, college admissions, fashion, and social services have expressed that they have used their theatre training on a daily basis in these professions and in other parts of their lives. Many Reed Theatre graduates have gone on to use their training to become teachers of everything from mathematics to English to theatre history; there are Reed Theatre graduates in North America teaching every level of student from preschoolers to graduate students at research universities.

Many Reed Theatre graduates also choose to pursue Theatre as a profession. Graduates have apprenticed and interned with Seattle Children's Theatre, Portland Stage, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Studio Theatre, Lookingglass Theatre, Berkeley Rep, McCarter Theatre, Wingspace Theatrical Design, Juilliard, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, the Public Theater, and SoHo Rep., among other institutions. Reed Theatre graduates have pursued MFA and doctoral degrees at Juilliard, N.Y.U., the Yale School of Drama, Northwestern University, the University of Washington, California Institute of the Arts, and Carnegie-Mellon University. Students have done post-graduate training with Bread and Puppet Theater, New England Center for Circus Arts, Pig Iron, and Dell'Arte International School of Theatre. Students have pursued study and professions in dramaturgy, playwriting, acting, directing, design, production management, and stage management. We are proud to have a robust alumni network of Reed Theatre students living and working in theatre around the country.
