about me

Born and raised in the volcanic lands of Guatemala, Alexandra’s passion and love for performing began with dance at the age of 13. Alexandra quickly became a prominent dancer, eventually teaching dance three years later to afford paying for her training while also attending high school.  She was introduced to theatre at the age of 15 by her high school teacher who asked her to join the drama club after Alexandra’s attempt to make humanity less boring by giving a social sciences class presentation dressed up as a Spice Girl trying to speak Spanish in a British accent. Soon after joining the drama club for one year and having played Jemima in Cats (that’s the young cat no one remembers that sings the first verse of Memory), Alexandra was then asked to perform in most of her high school’s events, having never had any training or much experience singing in public. In 2009, Alexandra was asked to play the supporting role of Alejandra in the Guatemalan movie “Un Día de Sol”. A year later, Alexandra moved on her own to Canada to pursue, for the first time in her life, training in musical theatre after being accepted through a video submission to the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, BC.

GRACIAS
"I dedicate the heart and the hard work I put in my career to those who have supported me throughout my journey in Guatemala and Canada. Gracias to those who spent time helping me build my craft, to those who believed in me, to those friends who became family in a country I had never been to before, and especially to my family in Guatemala who know the sacrifices of what it is to be far away and have to miss the treasured moments. My deepest gratitude goes to my mama, Ana, a single mother of two, who against all odds, remained strong, optimistic and always full of life.”

After completing the musical theatre program in 2012, Alexandra then moved to Vancouver to attend the renowned classical theatre training program Studio 58, where upon graduation in 2015 she was awarded the acclaimed Sydney J. Risk and Studio 58 acting award. All of Alexandra’s training in Canada was made possible thanks to the help and support of many people coming together in fundraisers, donations, scholarships and bursaries. In 2017 she was awarded The Jessie Richardson Award for Best Performance in a Lead Role for her work in Green Lake with Solo Collective Theatre and was nominated for an Ovation Award for her portrayal of Anita in West Side Story with Theatre Under The Stars.

Later that same year, Alexandra moved to Stratford, Ontario to attend the Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre at the Stratford Festival. A job Alexandra booked after crashing the auditions in Vancouver. Since 2018 Alexandra has been a member of the acting company at The Stratford Festival of Canada, where in 2019 she was nominated by her peers for a Tanya Moiseiwitsch Award. In 2020, Alexandra portrayed the role of Carolita in Carmen Aguirre’s highly acclaimed world premiere “Anywhere But Here," the first time in Canadian history that a Latinx work premieres on a major stage in Canada. Alexandra is also a proud co-founder and member of The Canadian Latinx Theatre Artist Coalition based in Vancouver and the founder of “The Glorian MacDewellis Award” which is the only bursary given to an International Student attending the acting program at Studio 58. An award named after the five people who immensely supported and encouraged Alexandra to believe in her dreams as a young immigrant in Canada.
