In the final years of Drama School one does numerous full-blown shows in preparation for the professional scene. Some large scale, some small. In the case of my WAAPA class, we did about seven musicals and plays. But how much does a show at a Drama School emulate that of one in the real world? I chatted… Read more.
I’m a Queenslander. Please, don’t hold it against me but it’s true. And I’m proud of it. When I moved from Stanthorpe to Perth, WA, it was the first time I’d left the nest. No more of Mum’s Sunday roasts, no more of Dad’s pizza oven antics. Three years on, I am happy to say… Read more.
Monday off Tuesday Straight into technical rehearsal and the time is ticking, we are teching the children as we go which means some scenes are repeated 4 times.

Day 1 Monday I’m feeling ready for another week. My body feels great after a full day of rest and I also took myself to the chiropractor this morning for some maintenance. Today we are learning the final dance number…yippeeee. I cannot wait until all of the choreography has been learnt. Everyone is on stage… Read more.
Day 1 After a day off I’m feeling refreshed and ready to get back into it. My body and mind are starting to build stamina now and I’m getting up easier and adjusting to routine. (I’m not much of a morning person). We have finished two major dance numbers and I’m hoping to cement some… Read more.
