The first show Alex lit for Red Earth Theatre was Cinderella’s Sisters in 2008.
She sat in the rehearsal room surrounded by the company speaking, signing and creating theatre using both these languages and thought it was great!

Alex has since designed the lighting for Five, Emil and the Detectives, Hansel & GretelThe Remarkable Tale of Oliver Twist Mirror Mirror. She thinks it’s wonderful to work on shows that her children love to watch too!
