December 11th, 2013

If you’ve ever met me in person or spoken to me on the phone, you’ll know I’m excited by default. It has been a little tough trying to contain my ridiculous excitement over the last couple of weeks while rehearsing for BAND OF MAGICIANS. It’s truly an honour to be able to work with some of my best mates on a project which has been coming to boil over the last 6-12 months.

With less than 4 weeks till opening night, we’re absolutely boiling. I really cannot wait to be sharing this show with a home crowd for its world premiere in Sydney. If you haven’t booked tickets already, you should. The show was made for families, so bring the gang out for a great night (or day).

I’m privileged to be working with such incredibly talented magicians (Justin Willman, Nate Staniforth and Justin Flom) and my creative dream-team – Director, Craig Ilott (Smoke & Mirrors, Hedwig & The Angry Inch), Set Designer, Peter England (King Kong, Walking With Dinosaurs), Creative Consultant, Blake Vogt (David Copperfield, Dynamo, David Blaine), Film Director, Adam Scott-Franklin and thrilled to be working again with Sound Designer, Steve Francis (he’s done everything) and lighting designer, Matt Marshall (who I was lucky enough to work with on Lying Cheating Bastard).


See you in Sydney!
