Hello! If you are a new friend: welcome. If you are an old friend, welcome back. Sit down; let's have a cuppa.
Brisbane based theatre company, CR Productions, has been making theatre since May 2013., I was nineteen, boot-clad, and heart-heavy. I had been told so many times that no one would want to see our work because we weren't "famous". Wasn't that the point? Getting that big "shot", that opportunity to show people that we had what it takes, by working hard on our craft and putting it out there?

Flash forward nearly SIX years and that need to prove myself has evolved and changed by incorporating feminism and therapy into my life. I moved around. Graduated acting school. Made more art.  Partied hard like everyone should in their 20's. Fell pregnant. Fell out with my closest friend. It all pushed me to do something I had never done before. Perform a WHOLE SHOW completely solo. That show proved to me that I still had so much art to give. I had such a huge life before my son was born. Surely my art wouldn't just let me go? It was a love affair I just wasn't ready to put to rest.
My son, Jude, was seven weeks old during the auditions for Short and Sweet's 2017 show "Love At First Slice", performed in August 2017 at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

In this age of tricky Facebook algorithms, I wanted it to be easier for our fans to have access to content between shows. I plan to expand the kinds of art I am producing and sharing with you guys (Special Effects Makeup! Draft scripts! Performance art videos! Featured artists! Ukulele!)
That's where Patreon comes in. By becoming a patron, you pay a monthly amount of your choosing (each tier has different rewards!) to gain access to ALL of my content in one place, and sent directly to your email inbox. This patronage gives us a budget which allows me to pay actors, for venues to rehearse and perform in, better film equipment, props and costumes, merchandise, and spend more time working on content to share with you. Making art is what I do, and Patreon makes it possible for me to deliver that art to you INSTANTLY. It also gives you guys a voice about what kinds of content you are seeing! What kind are you enjoying, what needs to be axed?
TELL ME! I am all ears.

Whether you're backing me at $1 or $50, YOU are responsible for making this happen and I am eternally grateful. THANK YOU.
