Gypsy – Review

I’m excited and delighted to have been mentioned in a review by TheatrePeople.com.au for my role as Mazeppa in Gypsy:

The trio of Wichita strippers (Mazeppa – Racheal Leigh, Tessie Tura – Julia Lefik, and Electra -Shelley Days) was a definite crowd favourite. Their rendition of “You Gotta get A Gimmick” was deliciously competitive, and wonderfully funny. Hats off to Leigh for actually playing Mazeppa’s trumpet – a joyous moment for all.

This show has been one of my favourites (next to Chicago) and I’m so excited to be playing such a fun role!  Only playing until this Saturday, 28 November – so do come along if you’re in town!

In other news, I’ve had a bit of a blessing in disguise by recently discovering I’m being made redundant from my full time job… whilst this is a scary prospect, I’m actually looking forward to being able to concentrate on my performing career, as well as make a move into the health & fitness industry – hopefully inspiring and helping others.  You can hear more about that on my second blog here:  https://youtu.be/NhbQ2D_ARN4
