Allison
Anne
Menzimer

was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After eighteen years of reading everything that couldn't crawl away, she migrated south to attend UC Santa Barbara, where she earned her BFA in Acting from their excellent conservatory-style program. After working with Santa Barbara's Boxtales Theater Company, Allie turned her toes north to spend three years earning her MFA at the Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre in rural Blue Lake, CA. Upon graduation in 2014, she continued north to Portland, OR to join the next generation of Pacific Northwestern theatermakers.

Allie has performed with Oregon Children's Theater, and has appeared in original work around the city. She solves murders and wears mustaches with the Portland troupe of the interative Murder Mystery Company. A member of the international all-female physical theater company, Glitter Gizzard, Allie has toured across Canada and to New York City as co-creator and performer of the absurd comedy "The Seminar with Madge and Taffy."

Allie's day-to-day interests include road tripping, handstands, knitting, folk songs, campfires, historical costume dramas, craft beers, the San Francisco Giants, and googly eyes.
