Romney Stanton has been really flexing her muscles with each production of The Bard espescially playing strong male characters! She was great as Pisanio in Cymbeline and now she is tackling Aeneas in Troilus and Cressida. Another interesting character which demands strength in delivery. Play opens at The Depot in Marrickville on Friday 11 May.
Elliott Falzon has been extremely busy. Just finished playing Sonny in the feature film "The Exchange" directed by Jerome Kattampallil, then various characters in a production of Hamlet directed by George Lazaris. Moved straight into Alison's House directed by Julie Baz playing the journalist Richard knowles and right now working as a 1st AD on a series that is being pitched to network TV called Made For This directed by Aaron Warwick
Janine Penfold constantly on TV
Janine Penfold always seems to be in the thick of it. This week she has been performing in the Mountain Voices Project for the Weatherboard Theatre Inc. doing 3 public readings at the Carrington Hotel Katoomba. Directed by Andy McDonell is has some strong actors in it. Try and catch it and put in a break as well in Katoomba!. Of course beside theatre Janine seems to make the switch to screen with little ease. She is constantly on TV especially fronting up on the Morning Shows for Channel 7, Channel 9 or Channel 10 in advertorial recordings for RFEA. Janine does have a persuasive manner. Well done Janine!
A lovely run for George Zhao
Another exciting talent who is having a lovely run is George Zhao. Since the beginning of this year George has been constantly working in all areas of the business. Started the year with Opera Australia in the lovely production of Aida and then moved on to land the lead in the TV series “Family Law”. This was shot in Queensland and George loved every minute of it. Publicity for the series has just been launched and we keep our fingers crossed for big things to happen for the series. We shall see. George has also has quite a few recalls on other major productions like “Confessions of a Superman”, the feature “Bruce Lee” and “Marco Polo”. George also appeared recently in the theatre play of “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S.Lewis and adapted and directed by Hailey McQueen. So watch this space
Adam Hatz has been busy again
Adam Hatz has been busy again as he always is. Just finished working in the feature film "The Exchange" where he not only played one of the lead roles but also was the producer on the film. Never asked him how he separated "figures and dates" from getting inside his character. But that's Adam! Another taxing gig was the play, "Tesla:Uncoiled" where he also directed and performed one of the leads. Also worked on the development of “A Counting and Cracking Heads” by playwright S. Shaktidharan, with director Eamon Flack and a team of theatre artists appointed by Playwriting Australia and Belvoir Street Theatre. Adam also had a week filming for Beyond Productions playing the lead role of Dr Joseph Roncaioli in a Docu Drama called “Your Number’s Up”. This was directed by John Mavety. We do hope that Adam’s number is not up as yet and more exciting work from him is on the way.
