Avery Reagan. Lighting Designer.
Avery Reagan is a lighting designer currently based in the Los Angeles area.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia (a proud and enthusiastic Braves fan), Avery discovered her passion for lighting through school and community theatre productions. As she specified and matured her craft, she found how mesmerizing and impactful light can be within a production. Now she has designed and assisted from coast-to-coast with companies such as South Coast Repertory Theater, Great River Shakespeare Festival, New York City Ballet, San Francisco Opera, and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
During those rare times when she is not working, Avery enjoys snowboarding, going to the movies, savoring a glass of good wine, and spending time with her friends. Most of all, she loves the creative and collaborative process that exists within her craft, and that special magic that often results.
She received her M.F.A. from the University of California, Irvine and was the 2020-2022 Gilbert Hemsley Lighting Intern.
Some upcoming opportunities Avery is excited to be a part of are designing Cabaret this fall with UC Riverside and working as one of the two lighting designers for Festival in Motion with LADP this winter in Qatar.
