Regina Toon

COUNTRY Singapore


Much to her parents’ credit, Regina grew up with music, dance and literature. This naturally opened the door to theatre for her. Prior to her training in ITI, she trained at East 15 Acting School (UK), Natanakairali (India), Shanghai Theatre Academy (China) and the International Noh Institute (Japan). She also trained in classical ballet under the Royal Academy of Dance and vocally at the Lee Wei Song School of Music. Regina has also published a book of poetry titled Coordinates.

Regina was born in Singapore, but has travelled, trained and worked in multiple countries and cultures. This has acquainted her with different ways of thinking, being and living. She feels it is this exposure that has given her the sensitivity to appreciate the value of interculturalism. She is grateful that she is able to constantly rediscover herself and the world, in the work of theatre.
