Alex Drinnen headshotJunior theatre performance major Alex Drinnen was recently featured on BroadwayWorld as “one of the most accomplished and most often-cast young actors in Tennessee Theater.”

Drinnen attributes most of theatrical success to his education and experiences at Belmont. He said, “My experience at Belmont has been one of the most transformative periods in my life… I’m still blown away every day by the amount of talent that is here at our disposal as well as some of the greatest facilities I’ve ever seen in an academic setting.”

Drinnen is currently the assistant projection designer for Belmont’s production of “The Importance of Being Earnest,” as well as continuing his own personal play-writing. He says that his aspirations have shifted recently from only acting to exploring a variety of concentrations within the theater. “My favorite thing about Belmont is the vast array of opportunities one has, both in and out of the department. We can explore different areas of design, writing [and] directing… Most schools don’t have that opportunity, so that’s an amazing part of what makes Belmont special.”
