ABOUT THE SHOW
A shy young girl who feels lost in the world discovers a
magical secret that reveals her true purpose in life. As Alex sets out on a quest to stand up to the evil King and bring freedom back to all the artists in the land she realizes the true power of her voice and the value of her creativity.
Alex The Artist aims to inspire and remind the younger generation that
everyone has a voice and the potential to change the world: Empathy and creativity trump hate and fear every single time.
