A passionate performer since the age of eight, Alexis Raphael discovered that the world of musical theatre was the perfect place for her. She has studied pop, jazz and musical theatre voice at Big Voice Studios with Elaine Overholt, Chris Tsujiuchi and Louisa Burgess for the past nine years, as well as studying pop and pop/rock voice with Zack Werner for two years. She trained in classical music, as well as choral music and performed in classical, pop and jazz chamber choirs from 2013 until 2017, and at age 15, she started On - Camera Acting Training with Lewis Beaumander and Jacob Kraemer at Lewis Beaumander Acting Studio in Toronto.
Out of high school, Alexis relocated and moved from Thornhill to Brockville as she continued her journey at St. Lawrence College's Musical Theatre Performance program, where she originated a female, LGBTQ+ version of Lucas Beineke in The Addams Family, under the direction of Cameron Carver and Aaron Eyre. She also understudied the role of Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar, while playing Priest #3 and performing in the ensemble, directed by Liz Gilroy and Christopher Cennon. Other credits at St. Lawrence College include Sweet Charity (Daddy Brubeck/Fandango Dancer directed by Cameron Carver and Thomas Alderson, and with music direction by Jonathan Monro), The Little Mermaid (Princess #4/Ensemble, directed by Rob Kempson, Michele Shuster and Shari Porter), and New Faces 2018 (Featured Soloist, directed by Chad McNamara and Patrick Burwell) and Concord Floral (#8/Fox in Concord Floral, directed by Mary Ellis).
Alexis Raphael hopes to change the world for the better through musical theatre, bringing light and joy through her passion for storytelling, and making sure the world is a place of love and acceptance for all human beings.
