Alexa MacKenzie first came on board with YPT’s summer program this year, and is thrilled to be back with the company for the fall production of Robin Hood. After completing her BFA in Visual Art Studio (Honours) at York University, Alexa pursued her passion for building through a sculpture residency at Salem Art Works, followed by several years practicing carpentry. Alexa's thirst for working with a broad range of materials and techniques lead to her building props at Stratford Festival. She recently moved back to her hometown of Niagara Falls and is now working with Shaw Festival. Alexa has since contributed to numerous productions such as the life sized Hound of the Baskervilles’ puppets, working alongside one of Canada's best puppeteers.
