Freelance Technical Director / Production Manager
Alexis attended production programs at the Humber School of Creative and Performing Arts and the National Theatre School of Canada. Upon graduation, she worked as a freelance technician and technical director in the Montreal area, enjoying stints with the Centaur Theatre, the Saidye Bronfman Centre and the Just for Laughs comedy festival. In 2005, she moved to London, Ontario to be the first, full-time “Apprentice Technical Director” at the Grand Theatre. She spent an incredibly formative year apprenticing under the unsinkable Andrea Surich. Following her time at the Grand, Alexis spent two glorious summers as PM of the Blyth Festival before accepting a position as Production Manager with York University’s Department of Theatre. Returning to her passion for technical direction, Alexis accepted the position as Technical Director with Young People’s Theatre. Now in her 6th year as TD there, she is very proud to have helped them with their 50th Anniversary Season.
