Play School aims to encourage a child to wonder, to think, to feel and to imagine.
The program shows two warm, caring people taking the time to be with one child. They address the child directly and personally. Into this relationship are woven the stories, songs and activities that form the fabric of Australian children's culture.
I remember watching "Singing in the Rain" for the first time when I was four or five. I wanted to do it all - sing, dance and act! I remember my little bones jumping, my heart racing and my mind was alive with possibilities of 'when I grow up'. So, it was no surprise I began to learn ballet when I was 6. I gave ten years of my life to dancing but I chose in the end to not pursue it professionally.
I studied for a B.A in Communication (Theatre/Media) at Charles Sturt University before going to NIDA. Then, I began my acting career three years ago with Play School, my first professional 'gig'. It was daunting finding myself with amazingly experienced actors, a script and the black bottomless eye of the camera staring at me.
Play School continues to be rewarding. I am allowed to be as much of a kid as the kid who is sitting in front of the television watching us. And when you find yourself making mistakes with your nursery rhymes, alphabet, numbers and 4 piece jigsaw puzzles, you can't help but think I'm not as grown up as I think I am.
