About Alessandra

She has studied with the Globe Education Program in London, has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and has worked with industry professionals such as Barbara Houseman and Marcela Lorca. She considers herself an artist in many capacities and spends her time not just as a performer but as a director, writer, deviser, and producer as well.

A proud Colorado native with roots in the east coast and currently based in Minneapolis, Alessandra is a bit of a nomad at heart. She graduated last May from the University of Minnesota/ Guthrie Theatre program with a BFA in Acting- a program based in classic works, but one that allowed her to explore her own passion for singing, physical theatre, and devised work.

Alessandra is also an activist, passionate about the intersections of social justice and representation within theatre. She loves engaging with classic works critically with an emphasis on inclusivity and accessibility, in the hopes of creating pieces and spaces where folks from all walks of life feel seen. When not working on (and off) stage, you can usually find her cooking, baking, enjoying the outdoors (especially the dogs), and practicing photography.

She is represented by Moore Creative Talent and Wehmann Models & Talent in Minneapolis.
