A message from Alex:

Hi there and thanks for checking out my website! I am a 17 year old British / Aussie actor, singer, film maker, composer and designer (anything creative really) and have been working professionally as an actor for the last 6 years or so. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in some pretty amazing productions including playing 'Michael Banks' in the Sydney season of 'Mary Poppins' at the Capitol Theatre, 'Under Milk Wood' with the Sydney Theatre Company, 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' with the Belvoir Street Theatre Company, 'Intersection' with ATYP, 3 seasons with Opera Australia and 3 seasons of pantomime at the King Street Theatre, Newtown, along with a number of film and television appearances. I am also a classically trained baritone singer (AMusA Dist.) and give regular vocal recitals around Sydney where I am currently based, although I am hoping to work overseas in the future. Hope you enjoy my website!

9th September - concert

I was lucky enough to be asked to perform with the Inner West Community Band last weekend. I sang "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and "You Raise Me Up". It was hard singing with a band and keeping together but a great experience. Thanks for letting me sing with you all!
