SPACE SANTA, THE SEX PISTOLS AND OTHER SUCH THINGS

30 11 2013

Wow, what a crazy month it’s been. Running straight for the success of Trampoline to the Aussie debut of Captain Spaceship! I am super stoked with how well it went, the cast pick up the format and took to whole new awesome levels and our audiences we large and loyal, what more could a crew of intergalactic super-nerds ask for?

I am excited to announce that THERE’S A BONUS EPISODE happening December 19th at Lazy Susan’s and it’s the CAPTAIN SPACESHIP CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! Come, it will be super!

It’s been a bit of “paper work and production” month…

I’ve been busy auditioning for a bunch of cool stuff in Australia and filming a few small parts in a mini-series and a feature film which has been really sweet. November has been a big month for shaping where I will be and what I will be doing for most of 2014…more news on that as soon AS I KNOW WHAT THE HELL I’M DOING WITH MY LIFE…*cough*

Big Vicious Circles news, Tickets for THE ADELAIDE FRINGE SEASON are on sale NOW! News for the Perth season will be released very shortly and there’s also a brand new Weeping Spoon Website coming soon!

EXCELSIOR!

Wow. What a trip.

Last week we finished up our “critically acclaimed” sold-out world debut season of TRAMPOLINE and I’m still finding it hard to put into words just how truly amazing it was. We had such amazing crowds, overwhelming great reviews and such positive feedback from the general public. For my first show back in Australia and my first brand new show in a few years, I was so relived to have the play so well received. I must admit, I put a lot of pressure on myself with this project, it was a huge undertaking, but I really couldn’t have asked for a better result. I am so incredibly proud of the show and all the people involved, this reminded my why I do what I do and why I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

I want to say a MASSIVE thanks to my cast-mates Ben and Amanda, who really brought the characters in this show to Iife in a way I could’ve never imaged, I am so honoured to work with you both. To our director Damon, thank you for pushing us in each rehearsal to really bring the text to life and give it the heart, comedy and pathos it deserved. Our Stage Manager Louise who came on board fairly last minute but became an invaluable and extremely joyous member of our team and I hope we can all work together again soon. Thanks also to Mike deGrussa, Cherie Hewson, all at The Blue Room Theatre and all else who helped work on the show.

“Working with a strong script, skilful technical support and talented comic actors, Trampoline is a perfect dream for creators and audiences alike… Short, sweet, quirky, produced with passion – Trampoline has all the elements that demonstrate why The Blue Room Theatre is such a vital part of Perth’s cultural milieu. ✭✭✭✭1/2″ – artsHubs.com.au

COMING SOON another Canadian show debuts in Oz! I will getting ROTTEN again and rocking that hideous bright orange hair again when Vicious Circles makes it’s way to Perth and Adelaide for a few festivals early 2014 and I for one, cannot wait for Aussies to see the sweatiest, dirtiest, more-drugged fucked punk-rock play ever. Keep an eye for “official” announcements for dates and venues soon! In the meantime you can help support the show by donating to the VICIOUS CIRCLE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN here and help pay to bring over the Montreal cast. We would really like it if you did that.
