Meet The Cast of All About Anne
Alice Malakhov Alice has always loved the Anne of Green Gables books, and now she gets to play Anne! She is super excited to perform with this amazingly talented cast! Alice is a 14-year old, Grade 8 student and an award-winning triple-threat singer, dancer, and actor. Alice is trilingual, speaking English, French and Russian fluently. She has been a member of the Canadian Children’s Opera Company for the past 5 years and has performed in many CCOC productions. She has also performed as the second spirit in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” at the Canadian Opera Company, as well as a chorus member in “Hansel and Gretel”. As a professional actor, Alice has worked on stage and screen. She's appeared in film and television projects including CBC and Netflix’s “Anne with an E”, TFO’s “Zik” and Lower Ossington Theatre’s “Matlida”. Alice has also performed solo recitals and appeared in singing competitions at Carnegie Hall, Roy Thompson Hall, and Koerner Hall. Even though Alice has had experience in many performing fields, it is the world of musical theatre that she is most passionate about. Her lifelong dream is to be Fanny Brice from “Funny Girl” on Broadway. Alice thanks all her teachers and her family for their unwavering support.
