It's never too early to start thinking about
Alex was sponsored by Geneva Theatre Guild. President Hugh Mater states, “I find Alex to be an enthusiastic and inventive young actor who enlivens his characters with a palate of skillful touches.” Mr. Mater went on to state that Alex is particularly good with creating accents.
Along with theatre, Alex is an accomplished clarinet player and pianist. He has participated in community soccer and was a 4 year Varsity Tennis team member.
Alex will attend SUNY Fredonia, studying to attain a BA in Theatre Arts. His goal is to become an actor but he is also interesting in all aspects of theatre – from set design, to script writing. Alex plans to continue his involvement in community theatre and believes “Community Theatre brings entertainment and culture to our towns, villages and cities, and creates a more vibrant feeling of community through the arts.”
