Filming

I have been fortunate to work on a couple of very exciting film projects over August and September and although you won't be able to see them for quite some time I just wanted to share my experiences!  

Firstly in August I had the pleasure of playing a supporting role on The D Word (working title), an independent film conceived and directed by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Jenks  of MTV's "World of Jenks," and  HBO's "Room 335"  which focused on one man's interactions with friends and love interests as he opens up about his struggle with chronic depression. The film is intended to humanize, or de-stigmatize, depression. The film is semi-improvised, so had a blast improvising my diologue and creating my character Judith. 

Check out out his website www.andrewjenksentertainment.com and IMDb for more on his incredible body of work.

Over four days in September I was whisked away to Staten Island, no less, to film the atmospheric, unnerving and beautiful short Twilight Land, conceived and directed by Chad Gardella. Staying in the haunted house with all the crew was a truely immersive experience, which included being painted dead head to toe, picking up crickets and reacting to some incredibly realistic fx make up.  Hopefully I'll be able to reveal more come spring time of 2016, till then here are some behind the scenes snaps.

The Winters Tale

I am delighted to announce that I shall be playing Paulina in "For Love and Duty Players" production of The Winters Tale. 

Rehearsals are now underway and i'm constantly astounded by Paulina's resourcefulness, and strength. I'm thrilled by the prospect of attempting to portray such a multifaceted woman.       

Set in the modern, nomadic world right in the heart of the country's freight hopping culture, this unique take on Shakespeare's romance follows the story of one leader's jealous nature destroys all that he loves and the path of redemption one man must take to get it back. Can such such a man be saved? 

We perform:

Thursday 13th, Friday 14th and Saturday 15th August at 8pm
Sunday 16th August at 3pm

Thursday 20th, Friday 21st, and Saturday 22nd at 8pm

Robin Hood In the Press

'They don’t say “No” here. Like the sword fights, on Broadway there would just be rounds of discussion. Here there’s nothing they won’t do. It’s all “I’ll do it, sure!”'  Douglas Carter Beane 

 The Company starring in Robin Hood the Musical - a World Premiere

The Company starring in Robin Hood the Musical - a World Premiere

And so Robin Hood has come to an end, after an incredible week of performances to sold-out auditoriums - we even had to add an extra performance. 

The positive reaction of our audiences has been overwhelming, including AADA Alumni and two time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole who personally congratulated us on our performances.

Our esteemed writer and director Douglas Carter Beane was interviewed by  Playbill.com and OnStage Blog about Robin Hood and his experience working with our company. 


Robin Hood A new musical

I am excited to announce that The Academy Company is embarking on a new adventure, working with the esteemed playwright and coincidentally AADA alumni Douglas Carter Beane writer of The Nance, Cinderella and Sister Act (to name a few)  on a brand new musical version of the classic tale of Robin Hood. 

With original music from Lewis Flynn, Robin Hood promises to be a high octane romp suitable for one and all.

So here's to the year ahead

2014 has truly been an incredible year. 

 2014 

2014 

From Graduation of the second year class in April, to starting the Company in August which has taken me on a whirlwind journey from being a southern belle, to chasing the fantastic, to the final Serenade of Louie. 

I just want to thank all of the friends and AADA students who have come and supported our shows. I hope you have enjoyed them as much as we have performing them. 

2015 has great promise, I'm excited about the opportunities that are lined up and healthily nervous about the unknown.

So here's to the year ahead and whatever it may hold.

I have a Website

I have set up a website.

Which is surprising, as everyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I am a technophobe. I'm just as surprised as you are.

Any feedback on the site is appreciated and I hope you enjoy nosing around it. 

Rhiannon
