Extremely proud to have been offered a role in 'Woman in Black', David is pleased to be returning to Reduxion Theatre, home of his very first show in Oklahoma City - 'Much Ado About Nothing' in 2012. Since then he is now become a veteran of five consecutive seasons with Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park, and many shows with Carpenter Square Theatre, OCTC, Stage Door Yukon, and The Pollard Theatre in Guthrie, David has also composed and performed original music for many theatre productions, and has worked as a dialect coach throughout the OKC area. Favorite roles recently include the title role in 'Julius Caesar' (Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park, 2015), 'Jeeves' (Carpenter Square, 2015), and Bob Ewell ('To Kill a Mockingbird' - Pollard Theatre, 2013). This is David's first show with Reduxion since his work in 'Henry V' in 2014. He is also seen in many commercials and training videos, and heard in extensive voice-over performances. Recent screen work includes 'Man in the arena' and 'Emerald, TX'. 
David is also the lead guitarist in two noted OKC bands - 'High Speed Boom' and 'By Design'.
As always, many thanks to Zaneen Hotchkiss for her eternal patience and support!

Tonia Sina

Internationally respected movement teacher, director, actress, playwright, model, and rare disease patient advocate. She is currently the Artistic Director of Reduxion Theatre, and she is happy to be directing her second show with Reduxion, after the wide success of In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) last season. Originally from Chicago, she received her BFA from Niagara University, and her MFA in Movement Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University. As a movement teacher, she has specialized in Intimacy for the Stage for over ten years, and wrote the article, Safe Sex: A Look at the Intimacy Choreographer, published in the Fight Master Magazine. Her most recent Intimacy For the Stage credits include teaching workshops with various theatre companies in Dallas, Toronto, and New York. Locally she has coached intimacy for Les Liaison Dangereuses, Macbeth, Henry V, August: Osage County, Sleepwalkers (Orlando Fringe Festival), The Odyssey, Dog Sees God, Beauty Queen of Leenane, and Dracula. Along with directing shows for Reduxion Theatre, Oklahoma City University and The University of Oklahoma, Tonia has written, directed and devised three original plays: Between the Lines, Dancing in the Storm, and For Bianca. Dancing in the Storm performed in Chicago in 2013 at Redtwist Theatre in conjunction with Adapt Theatre Productions.

Assistant Director

Jeana Forman Gering

Studying vocal performance at Oklahoma City University when she discovered her affinity for directing. She quickly declared it her minor and took on student led productions, from opera to contemporary plays. Since graduation, she has worked in New York City, Florida, and is recently now back in Oklahoma. Her work spans full productions, educational musical theatre camps, master classes, and private voice lessons. She is especially thrilled to be working under such a knowledgeable, dedicated director and with such accomplished and talented actors in this production of Woman In Black.

Artistic Director Welcome

Welcome to Reduxion Theatre Company’s ninth season, Evolution! It is my honor to be representing this company as the new Artistic Director. As an Oklahoma transplant for the past ten years, I have watched the arts scene change drastically since I first arrived in this city, and I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the next phase of development in the theatre community. As I learn the complicated ropes as the new Artistic Director, I hope to bring my years of experience and training from outside the Midwest to influence the new aesthetic of our company while continuing the legacy of pushing boundaries and bringing theatre education to Oklahomans. I have observed as budding artists are encouraged to leave the state to ensure a career in the fields of design and performance. I hope to provide one more reason for artists to stay here so that we all can benefit from the immense talent coming from the community and amazing training programs in the area. Performers, designers, and other production team members need not be outsourced when there is so much untapped talent right here in Oklahoma, and it is my goal to make Reduxion Theatre Company a source of professional quality work while offering a safe, creative home for artists.

This transitional season has been selected specifically to bring a variety of styles and genres to Reduxion’s audience. Each show varies greatly from the next, so there is truly something for everyone.

Thank you for helping us keep theatre alive in Oklahoma City!
