After performing in the Hays’ garage and attending a number of Theater Arts Training classes at Children’s Theatre Company (CTC), Alejandro decided he wanted to perform on the “big stage.”
In his theater debut in the Theater Latté Da/Hennepin Theater Trust production of Oliver! the St. Paul Pioneer Press described Alejandro as an “all-singing/all-dancing/all-astonishing … tiny powerhouse.” In 2015, he performed in Peter Pan the Musical and The Wizard of Oz at CTC, and at the Minnesota Fringe Festival in Damn Kids These Days.He was also honored to perform at the Ivey Awards and at CTC’s Curtain Call Ball.
In 2016, Alejandro returned to The Pantages Theater in the cast of Gypsy as part of Theater Latté Da/Hennepin Theater Trust’s Broadway Re-imagined series. In an exciting culmination of the 2015–2016 season, Alejandro appears in the Minnesota Opera’s world premiere of The Shining in the role of Danny Torrance.
