Reginald Andre Jackson has spent the last two decades in Seattle as a professional actor, playwright, and instructor. Apart from touring in four of Mr. Shakespeare’s works with Freehold’s Engaged Theatre Program, he has taken roles in eleven of his plays at Seattle Shakespeare Company, and undertaken the role of Othello for the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Company, among others. His work in the local theatre scene includes, but is not limited to, the Seattle Repertory Theatre, Intiman, ACT, Book-it, Seattle Children's Theatre, and Wooden O.
As a playwright, Mr. Jackson is the proud recipient of the American Alliance of Theatre and Education’s 2010 Distinguished Play Award, in the category of adaptation, for his Book-it style take on Christopher Paul Curtis’ wonderful novel, Bud, Not Buddy. His adaptation of Mr. Curtis’ first novel, The Watsons Go To Birmingham-1963, is due to be published in 2011.
Work in educational outreach includes Intiman Theatre’s award winning Living History program, Book-It Repertory Theatre’s Book-It All Over, and the Drama School at Seattle Children’s Theatre.
