4th December - Doctor Who and panto fun!

Wow - so much happening right now! Rehearsals for Mother Goose are in full swing (see poster to the right) and school is nearly over for another year. I was extremely honoured to win another academic excellence award at presentation night and come top in several subjects. I also recently achieved an A (honours) for my AMEB grade 8 singing - now that was a tough one but I made it - yay!

A definite highlight of last month was the Doctor Who exhibition in Sydney where I got to meet 12th doctor Peter Capaldi and 7th doctor Sylvestor McCoy and find out a little about what goes into making this amazing show. I WILL play the Doctor one day - I have the crazy hair for a start! Hope you like this pic of me with a Dalek.

Off to see Hamlet with Bell Shakespeare tonight and watching the brilliant Divas on Demand on Saturday (and hoping to join them one day!). Love theatre, love opera, love LOVE DOCTOR WHO!

20th August - plays and videos

Went to see the Bell Shakespeare prodcution of The Tempest last night. Just awesome - loved it, loved it, loved it! Really hope I get the opportunity to work with Bell Shakespeare one day.

Working hard at school right now - lots of assignments and showcase coming up, but here are some videos of my Sydney Eisteddfod comp winners - hope you like them. Love character acting!

Master of the House (Les Mis)

When I was a lad  (HMS Pinafore)

Lord Foppington (The Relapse)

23rd July - holidays over!

Back at school now after a successful holidays, where I won a couple more first places at Sydney Eisteddfod for the monologue in character 15yrs (as Lord Foppington from the Relapse - see pic below) and in the Gilbert and Sullivan song 16/under section (as Sir Joseph Porter from HMS Pinafore) as well as several seconds and thirds. Then at Ryde Eisteddfod I was very proud to be awarded 2 firsts in singing for the character and folk songs. I don't always win (sometimes I don't even place at all!) but these competitions are a great way to get experience and feedback from professionals and they keep me practising when I don't have any work (like now!). Hope you like the pics.

A topical film....

Congratulations America on making same-sex marriage a constitutional right! Here is a link to a must-see and very topical short film I was in a few years back made by the amazing Brendon McDonall. Even the kids get the message...

THE LAW

3rd June - long time no see!

I've just realised how long it is since I last posted so sorry about that but I've just been really busy. Mostly with school work, but I also recently took my AMEB grade 6 drama and performance exam and got an A+, which was great! Yesterday I also won first place in the Sydney Eisteddfod Shakespeare Event for 14-16 years, with an amazing 100/100 score, which was fantastic but a real surprise too as there were lots of other really talented competitors. Here is a picture of me with my medal.

20th Feb

Back at school now for year 9 but it's not all about homework - I have some film work in the pipeline that I'm really looking forward to, although I can't say too much at the moment. I also took part in a really cool Opera Boot Camp in the holidays, which was great fun. In the mean time here is one of my new headshots. Bye for now!

 

23rd Dec - Last day of Mother Goose

Today was the last day of Mother Goose at the King Street Theatre in Newtown. Sad to be finishing but we had a great final show and I hope I get to work with the cast and crew again - I LOVE PANTO!!! Only 2 days until CHRISTMAS!!!!!

9th Dec - Sydney Eisteddfod Interview

Mother Goose has now opened at the Kings Street Theatre, Newtown so get along and have a laugh - it's great for kids of all ages, but especially preschoolers and K-2 children as it's full of nursery rhymes!

Also here is a recent interview I did for the Sydney Eisteddfod
