Alexander Andrews

Alexander is an emerging theatre-maker, with a deep passion for education and the arts. He believes that art is a form of teaching; it teaches us to embrace originality, to accept change, and to grow. Alexander has a range of direction and design credits, including Sunday in the Park with George (Little Triangle, 2017), Painting Seventeen, (Gala Finalist, Short+Sweet, 2017), The Women (Edgewise Productions, 2016), A Little Night Music (MUSE, 2015), and Anyone Can Whistle (MUSE, 2014). As designer (set, costume, graphic), Alexander worked on Sarah Gaul in Slumberland (Sydney Fringe, 2015) and Under Milk Wood (Tiny Horse Theatre, 2015) for which he also assistant-directed and co-adapted.

Alexander believes that teaching is a sacred profession; his life has been shaped by teachers and it was for this reason he chose to become one. Alexander graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Performance Studies, and later completed a Diploma of Teaching (Secondary) in History and Drama. Alexander is currently teaching drama at the Australian Performing Arts Grammar School, and runs excursions for young explorers with Ranger Jamie Tours. Alexander recently joined the Gondwana Choirs team, facilitating musical theatre workshops and directing a piece for their Special Project Program. 

Alexander co-founded Little Triangle in a collaborative effort to bring theatre and education to young people, offering opportunities in professional and personal growth.
