DAVID ALLEN , III
Director and Acting/Audition Coach
David Allen III is a singer/actor/writer/director born and raised right here in Houston, TX. He was bitten by the acting bug in 1999 at 14 when a friend dragged him to an audition. He realized he love it and, since then, has taken every opportunity to hone his craft. He has acted on stages all over Houston and has a strong passion for teaching.
His favorite credits include: Seussical the Musical (Horton the Elephant), You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown (Schroeder), Godspell (John the Baptist), and Big River (Jim), Civil War (Benjamin), Guys and Dolls (Nicely Nicely Johnson).
His writing/directing credits include: Cindi (writer/director), The True Story of the Princess and the Pea (Co-writer/Director), The Words We Live By (Writer/Director), Alice in Wonderland (Director), Seussical, Jr. (Director), Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Co-director), Annie, Jr. (Co-director), The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Director), Sideways Stories from Wayside School (Director), The Little Mermaid (Director), and several others. He has also taught at several theatres in the area and currently delights in the awesome privilege of being one of the founders of Iconotheatrix (ITX). He also offers private lessons in acting and audition preparation. He strives to provide an exciting and interactive environment for children of all ages to learn and grow in their love for theatre.
As a product of Houston educational theatre himself, his passion for education combined with his love for the stage has brought him full circle. He became a founding member of Iconotheatrix in October 2014 and can’t wait for what this new adventure will bring.
