Director of Marketing
Alexis has spent the majority of her life on stage, but has found herself working creatively behind the scenes at VFR for the better part of the past six years. She loves being able to share her passion for theatre and enthusiasm for VFR's work with the Milwaukee area. When not staring endlessly at a computer screen, she can be found reading, cooking, thrift shopping or re-watching the same TV show for the hundredth time with her Iggy, Parker, and partner Alex.
Andy has been doing theatre since he was 6 years old and has been loving it ever since. He started VFR back in 2015 with a few friends after attending a month-long intensive at Shakespeare & Company in Lennox, Massachusetts. Andy is always thoroughly impressed by the passion and dedication of the artists that he works with, and helped start VFR to make a place for people to share that passion with the community. He hopes to return to the stage soon and encourages others to experience art whenever they can. When not thinking about Shakespeare, Andy enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons, as well as other games with his friends and portraying a citizen of Bristol at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.
