“Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterwards.”
– Tina Fey

Alex Bondesen is a passionate and driven performer who was born into a small military family, where her uniqueness showed at every dinner table performance. Growing up across Canada, her mother had the brilliant idea to ensure stability by enrolling Alex in dance and piano lessons. Alex’s passion for performance only grew from there, as she then attended Victoria School of Performing and Visual Arts where she had her first taste of film by becoming the lead in “How Flight Works”, a documentary showcased at the Alberta Aviation Museum.

A proud graduate of St. Lawrence College, Alex was honored to have been the recipient of the Last Bow Award. In her final year, she had the exceptional opportunity to play the role of Thing 1 in “Seussical the Musical” (directed by Jan Alexandra Smith), and the leading role of Violet Newstead in “9 to 5” (directed by Craig Fair). During her time at St. Lawrence College, Alex was given the opportunity to compose and Music Direct an original children’s show “Trinkets in Time” (directed by Brian Former), which toured various elementary schools focusing on teaching the importance of history and family.

After graduating, Alex then moved to Toronto to continue her education through the prestigious Second City’s conservatory programs, both Longform Improvisation and Sketch Comedy. Alex and her sketch troupe We Are Sports! went on to debut their original sketch revue “Carpe into my DM’s” at the Toronto Fringe Festival where it sold out the Al Green Theatre, received positive reviews and won the Best of Toronto Fringe Award.

Alex is incredibly excited for what’s to come as she takes this leap into the professional world.
