Ali Pritchard – Founder & Artistic Director
Ali has a BA Honours in Drama & Scriptwriting from Northumbria University and a Higher Diploma in Contemporary Vocals from The Academy of Contemporary Music. At the age of 23, Ali founded Alphabetti Theatre making him one the UK's youngest Artistic Directors. Ali is a visiting lecturer at a number of higher educational organisations and in 2013, following a year long gradutate fellowship at Northumbria University, he won "The Best Postgraduate Lecturer" award.
Ali is the only full-time member of staff at Alphabetti, as he programmes the entire theatre programme, writes, directs and produces. Due to how small a team we are he also has to muck in with managing the bar, running the get-ins, operating tech, sorting the rota and volunteers, doing the banking, fixing the building and responding to lots of your lovely enquiries!
In his very rare spare time he sings, cooks, reads and builds things! Sometimes he does all at once!
Sir Rexalot – Theatre Pooch
Life has never been quite the same since adorable Rex came on the scene! Ali's little bruiser has definitely been adopted as part of the Alphabetti team and you will often see him plodding about the basement. He even has his own little bed built into the bar. His bark sounds a bit scary but he is completely harmless, he just wants to be your friend!
