Getting to know alex mustakas

Alex Mustakas is a Canadian actor and director. He is the Artistic Director & CEO of Drayton Entertainment, a not-for-profit professional theatre company based in Southwestern Ontario, since 1991.


Under Mustakas’ tenure, Drayton Entertainment has grown to include seven venues across the province: the original Drayton Festival Theatre in Drayton, Huron Country Playhouse and Playhouse II in Grand Bend, King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene, Schoolhouse Theatre in St. Jacobs, St. Jacobs Country Playhouse in Waterloo, and Dunfield Theatre Cambridge in Cambridge.


Mustakas emigrated from Cyprus at the age of six, and as a natural performer at heart, he was drawn to the stage. After earning a business degree in Economics from Wilfrid Laurier University, Mustakas was gainfully employed in business and corporate sectors. He then pursued a career as a professional performer, working with such directors as Alan Lund.

After a few years on the stage, Mustakas became interested in theatre administration and pursued a Masters Degree in Arts Administration at City University in London. While in England, Mustakas worked on a project for Gresham College where he was responsible for evaluating data concerning A Historical Examination of Industrial Support for the Arts in the United Kingdom.

Mustakas returned to Canada, and launched the Drayton Festival Theatre in 1991. Six more theatres would join the fold over the next two decades, resulting in a theatrical empire that is one of the most successful in Canada.

Personal life

He is married to actress Jackie Mustakas (née Hadley), and is the father of two children, Hadley and Lukas.
