About Reyna Berry
An actor, writer, and playwright, Reyna Berry has loved storytelling from a very young age. She is currently a high school senior in Virginia planning to study theater and literature in college. Her play The Lioness Builds a Sand Castle was recognized at the 2023 Scholastic Writing awards, and she has work published in Reveille literary magazine, The Closed Eye Open, and ARTEMIS poetry. Arena Stage has been Reyna’s second home for the last five years, from her first Voices of Now (VON) play in 8th grade to her current work in the Mentor ensemble. VON cultivated in her a love for questioning the world. Creative movement, devised theatre, written work… whatever the medium, Reyna aims to explore expressions of empathy through art.
