A BIT ABOUT RICK
Rick Rea is a prolific musical theatre artist with nearly a decade of experience coaching actors, singers and instrumentalists. Along with being a composer/lyricist in the prestigious, Tony-Award-winning BMI Musical Theatre Writing Workshop, Rick has directed and/or music directed nearly fifty musicals. With his expertise on both sides of the casting table, he is uniquely equipped to help his students meet the demands of their auditions, performances and personal goals.
Rick's students can be seen on Broadway, Disney and major regional theatre stages nationwide. However, just as importantly to him, he coaches students who are starting out or in the early stages of their career. You'd be hard pressed to find a coach more patient and personally dedicated to his students' success.
When not coaching his students, he spends his time writing musical theatre songs, composing music for film and TV, and (not so) secretly aspiring to be a magician.
