Alegra BataraMusical Theatre
Alegra Batara (she/her) is a first-gen Filipina-American artist originally from Shoreline, Washington. Though her first love is music, she finds immense joy in an ever expanding multi-hyphenate set of artistic intrigues. Graduating with her BFA in Musical Theatre, some of Alegra’s most treasured projects include The Little Prince (Dir. Gad Guterman), Miss You Like Hell (Dir. Gaby Rodriguez), and Love’s Labor’s Lost (Dir. Bryan Hunt). In addition, Alegra is a writer, director, and advocate for BIPOC artists. She’s passionate about helping to redefine theatre education to create a new culture of inclusivity, conscious conversation, and empowerment for all participants. As a biracial, queer Asian person, she finds particular interest in the reclamation of her communities’ narratives through the creation of new works, embracing TYA, reimagining classical work, etc. Alegra believes that art is a gift, and artists are fortunate to create it and are called to share it.
