Grant Reynolds

Actor/Singer
Class of 2021
(He/Him/His)


Born and raised in the small village of Oak Park Chicago, Grant has spent the majority of his life trying to find something to cultivate his larger than life personality. The product of a healthcare professional and an architect, Grant has always had an inherent love for learning and research, but it wasn’t until one day when a late pick up from school turned into an audition for the sixth grade musical “Pirates of Penzance.” The rest is history.

A very strong actor, singer and dancer, Grant is most attracted to work that provokes thought, action, and ignites change. He enjoys working on pieces that challenge the traditional paradigm of theatre by centering it around universal issues such as social justice and civil rights. When Grant isn’t performing he’s bird watching, gardening, songwriting and cooking for his friends and family.
