Meet Audrey Alford & A Real Boy

Name: Audrey Alford

What is your current project? A Real Boy by Stephen Kaplan

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

59E59 is the perfect fit for this intimate piece. We have turned Theatre C into a Kindergarten classroom with the audience up close and personal in alley seating. Watching it from different angles really does change the way you understand a character, as well as the puppets.

What’s next for you?

I’m a member of the SDC Observership Class so hopefully I will be working under an established director very soon. Otherwise, I’ll continue to keep my eye out for projects that fit with my personal mission.

What is the name of the last show you saw?


Any advice for your peers?

Create a space where everyone is able to fail. Some of the best moments come from someone in the room trying something zany.
