Orange Theatre AU

Olivia and I after a performance at the Butterfly Club  & Members of the Orange Theatre AU

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT KINGSTON?

I both live and work in Kingston.  I’ve been here since I arrived in Australia 15 years ago. I adore the beaches and feel lucky I can walk to such amazing places.  It’s a quiet suburb great for kids.

WHAT IS YOUR CREATIVE PASSION/PRACTICE?

My creative passion is acting and really it was first ignited about 4 years ago, I should have done it long ago.  In order to make sure I always had an opportunity to act I co founded Orange Theatre AU in 2018.  I and others write and perform our own shows.

WHAT LED YOU TO YOUR CRAFT?

I just had the feeling I should give it a try as I wasn’t getting any younger...and a class I finally decided to do brought me together with Olivia Na.  After the theatre classes finished Olivia and I then had the idea of forming a theatre company and hence that is when Orange Theatre Au was born.

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE ARTIST?

My favourite artist that’s a hard one.. I love all my acting colleagues who may not be famous names but do the best they can in a very small industry. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?

I love being able to tell a story, to inhabit a character and bring fun and enjoyment to others( so far our shows have been comedic.) I love that we can provide support and help to others who love to act and write.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON DURING COVID-19?

During COVID I have taken part in a few  of zoom performances.  I am also writing in preparation for performing again,  this year Orange had planned to film a web series pilot. I have started a couple of blogs which contain stories and monologues.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO AFTER COVID-19?

I am most looking forward to returning to the stage and performing again with the members of Orange Theatre AU.
