Daughter of a glass blower and a mural painter, Allegra Monk was raised to appreciate artistry as a life-long practice. Growing up in a studio in Sydney, and walking up King Street each morning attending Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, she became an avid listener to the world around her from a young age. A love for storytelling led her to London in 2015 to participate in workshops with RADA (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts), Frantic Assembly and The Globe Theatre.
Allegra was cast as Nellie Forbush in the school’s Major production of South Pacific in her graduating year. At seventeen, alongside ushering at the Sydney Theatre Company, Allegra was accepted into the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts where last year she played Ophelia in Hamlet, directed by Sean O’Shea. At her final showcasing performance at WAAPA, Allegra was awarded the annual Lesley Anderson Award for Best Actor.
