Andrew Roblyer is the Theatrical Director for Ballet Brazos, and a professional actor, director, writer, and acting coach. He is the founder of This Is Water Theatre, the first professional theatre company in Bryan/College Station, and Shakes on the Lake, the first outdoor summer Shakespeare performance in B/CS. This is his sixth year performing with Ballet Brazos, and his fourth as Uncle Drosselmeyer. He formerly studied under Mark Carlson at the International Ballet School and German and Valentina Moukhanova Zamuel at Zamuel Ballet School before a fractured vertebra shifted his artistic focus away from dance. He is grateful for Ballet Brazos giving him an opportunity to use his artistic skills to support an art form and a community near and dear to his heart.
