“I joined the Rosebud West Community Renewal, 3940 Arts Project, funded by the Department of Community Development and Planning in partnership with the Mornington Peninsula Shire, headed by the brilliant Jo Ridgeway, in 2009. It was decided I would work with 10 teenagers over 10 weeks to create an intimate Cabaret show, detailing different aspects of living life in Rosebud West. As the members of the Theatre Project, now a company, whose ages ranged from 8 to 75, began to reveal their stories & talk about their hopes and dreams, it became clear to Jo and I that the theatre project was going to get bigger. I have watched the young members of the company grow into beautiful adolescence and feel incredibly privileged to have been part of their lives during this 2 year period. I have witnessed a strenghtening of the bonds between the younger members of this community and our seniors through the sharing of tales and laughter. I have watched the company, young and our senior members blossom with confidence as their performance and theatre skills grew and their imaginations became ignited. It has been a long and wonderful journey and I am so incredibly proud of this project and all the wonderful people involved.”
