Riel Reddick-Stevens
CAEA

Riel Reddick-Stevens (She/her) grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia with a huge imagination. At age 4 she was put into various theatre, dance, music and art classes to explore her love of learning through art, where she developed a passion for performance, collective creation and multimedia storytelling. She decided to pursue this love further at Randolph College (2019) and later National Theatre School of Canada (acting / 2022). During her time at school she began exploring her love of story creation, and began working as a composer, playwright and arts educator. She now searches for ways to combine all of her creative work with her performance background.

Over the past few years Riel has had the chance to develop and perform a variety of theatrical works ranging from TYA to Classical with companies all over Canada; as well as a live digital theatrical performance at the Women’s International Theatre festival in North Carolina, and music of hers being played in Parent Plus Loan performed at Dixon Place in New York City.

This past April, Riel was nominated for a Robert Merrit award for Outstanding Lead actor in a play for her work as Sissy, in Unity 1918 at Two Planks and a Passion Theatre. She recently began dipping her toes into the world of film by participating in features and shorts shot by friends, and hopes to continue in the film world in the coming years.

Riel is passionate about creating and participating in new works and telling stories that are bold, honest, and allow all types of diverse voices to be heard. She is devoted to finding and creating artistic spaces where folks can be their whole selves and come together to learn, grow, create and tell captivating stories.
