Alexander Andrews

Alexander is an emerging theatre-maker – a director, designer, performer, and teacher. He believes that art is a form of teaching; it teaches us to embrace originality, to accept change, and to grow - to adopt and adapt. Alexander has a range of direction and design credits, including 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 has worked on Sarah Gaul in Slumberland (Sydney Fringe, 2015) and Under Milk Wood (Tiny Horse Theatre, 2015) for which he also co-directed and adapted. Alexander has taken on leading roles in various independent productions, including Under Milk Wood (Tiny Horse Theatre, 2015), The Raven (Pearl and Dagger, 2015), Anything Goes (MUSE, 2014), Company (MUSE, 2013), Annie (Arcadians Theatre Group, 2012), and Into the Woods (MUSE, 2011). 

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. He now teaches drama and stage technique at the Australian Performing Arts Grammar School, drama at Cronulla High School, and works as a freelance drama teacher.

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