Sisters

Sally is delighted to be sharing her very first cabaret performance with the world. That is, unless you count the recent ECMT production of Cabaret (Dir. Erin James)… in which she conveniently played… Sally. A Bachelor of Arts graduate from the Curtin University of Technology, Sally also holds a Certificate IV in Musical Theatre and a Diploma of Screen Acting from WAAPA. In the ECMT’s 2019 production of Spring Awakening (dir. George Torbay) Sally was proud to take on the roles of Frau Gabor and Dance Captain. She also performed the role of Katie in the premiere film project Songs for A New World (dir. Mitre Khammash).

If you don’t hear from Sally after this show, assume her sister has found out about this cabaret and disposed of her.
