Four actors have varied backgrounds
The four actors in Woy Woy Little Theatre's latest production, Travelling North by David Williamson, have varied backgrounds, according to the theatre company.
Mr Simon Doctor, who plays Frank, studied acting in Sydney and New York where he also acted in and directed plays.
Apart from his theatrical pursuits, he has worked as a solicitor in Wollongong, a barrister in Sydney, journalist in Sydney and Hong Kong, secondary school teacher in Sydney and New York and for the Commonwealth Department of Health in law-related positions in Canberra. He continues postgraduate law studies at Sydney University while pursing his interest in classical music, theatre and literature.
This is his first role with Woy Woy Little Theatre.
Ms Kelli Ward, who plays Helen, discovered her love of the limelight performing shows on the front verandah of her parent's house during primary school.
As well as roles in theatre productions, she has more than 15 years' experience playing Theatresports.
She is the mother of a four-year-old with red hair and sings in a covers band, "which would be famous by now if the band members could agree on a name".
Ms Diane Warman, who plays Sophie, studied at Independent Theatre for Young People in North Sydney, at Sydney Acting School and Max Rowley's Media Academy in the 1980s.
She performed in community musical theatre productions including many Concord Repat Hospital Cabaret shows during the 1980s.
She "gave away acting for all the wrong reasons" and said she was enjoying a return to "for all the right reasons".
Ms Christine Vale, who plays Frances, has played many roles for Woy Woy Little Theatre including the fading southern belle Blanche du Bois in Streetcar Named Desire, the gin-swilling Marion in Absurd Person Singular, the aloof matriarch Judith Bliss in Hay Fever and last year Ursula in Ladies in Lavender.
Her Woy Woy Little Theatre directing credits include Don't Drink the Water, Competitive Tenderness, Operator, The 39 Steps, The Venetian Twins and Ben Hur.
