I worked with Alan at Carowinds in the '80s, and will always remember his humor and warm smile. RIP...you will be sorely missed!

The older I get the less I understand this part in which I find myself acting in. Hearing that often the good die young, I try always to play an older character. Alan without you how will I ever find THAT right part and an actor is only as good as his last part. And here in Charlotte an actor decides every second to leave the BIZ but Alan you could have just sprouted those hidden wings and flew away as an eagle to heaven.
I'm not religious, but I like God and he likes me.

Charlotte will miss the creativity of this good and talented man. His dedication to The Children's Theatre of Charlotte helped to build ImaginOn into what to is today.
Thank you, Alan

Alan was an incredible artist. The guy remained dedicated to the integrity of strong expression and teaching the art of theatre to his contemporaries and his students. We were not close as friends but I did have several opportunities to work with him, and I always respected his talents and his ability to honestly portray his visions as an actor and a director. It is sad when some one of his abilities, and his dedication to further a communities understanding of a fine art, dies. In many ways it is a tragedy. I wonder how many of Charlotte's citizenry really know what an asset he was in the community. The theatre scene grew exponintially due to Alan's personal efforts and the work of his close colleagues. Believe me he would never guess that I would write anything in his honor, but I feel more than compelled to give a last applause to such an accomplished artist.

Alan will be missed. His great talent and passion was contagious and transforming. My children were delighted by his on stage presence as he was a remarkable actor. His work as artistic director raised the bar for children's theater to a truly professional level. Rest in Peace knowing you had a very positive impact on many children and their parents from Morehead St to ImaginOn.

I was stunned to learn this morning of Alan's passing.....it had been over 20 years since I last saw him strolling the halls of the Rowe Arts Building at UNC Charlotte, but I remember him well. Rest in peace.

He was at his best working with young people - from the crazed Bill Sykes in "Oliver" to the crazy old woman in "Christmas Story." Out of the stage character, a very sweet man, who was incredibly caring for my son when he started at CT at age 6. Rest easy, Alan.

You are a memorable man, Alan Poindexter, with visions and accomplishments of amazing value. You will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of this loss. The Charlotte Arts Community has lost a wonderful person and advocate of/for theater. I remember when the Children's Theater was at the small cramped space on Morehead. Regardless, wonderful productions were presented. When I went to see "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (at ImaginOn) I was totally transported to the magical land of Narnia thanks to Mr. Poindexter's artistic genius. RIP Mr. Poindexter, the arts community has truly lost a visionary, an advocate, and a wonderful person.
