Our Linsten Morris Family Proves ‘All The World’s A Stage’ in 2016

2015 was an incredibly big year in theatre for our Linsten Morris family and 2016 is shaping up to be even bigger.

Following in the successful musical theatre footsteps left by Suzie Mather’s (WICKED, CINDERELLA) and Tony Sheldon (MAN OF LA MANCHA, AMELIE) in 2015, Ashleigh Rubenach and William Groucutt join THE SOUND OF MUSIC‘s Australian Tour in 2016.  The pair have been wowing audiences at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre since before christmas and will take the show to Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide before the year is out. The Sound of Music is Ashleigh’s second Main Stage Production with the Gordon Frost Association having toured with the company of ANYTHING GOES in 2015. 
Her performance in COCK at the Old Fitz during last years Mardis Gras Festival earned Matilda Ridgeway a nomination for best actress at last nights GLUGS awards and the actress shows no signs of slowing down in 2016. Matilda stepped straight into the Belvoir St Theatre’s production of JASPER JONES in January, having just finished 118 critically acclaimed performances as Ophelia in Bell Shakespeare’s production of HAMLET.
Tomorrow night Brooke Satchwell returns to the stage alongside the Chaser’s Chris Taylor and Craig Reucassel in the world premiere of JACK OF HEARTS.  The production, directed by David Williamson will headline the Ensembles 2016 season and run until April 2nd before touring to Newcastle. Jonny Hawkins is set to make his main stage debut  for the Ensemble Theatre Company this November under the direction of Mark Kilmurry in RELATIVLEY SPEAKING.
On the 17th of February, DEAD MEN TALKING written by and featuring Max Cullen is back by popular demand and will run through to mid- may. Prior to joining the cast of King Lear at the Sydney Theatre Company, Max’s DEAD MEN TALKING, notched up 40 performances, many of which were sold out shows.
After a sold out run at the Sydney Fringe where its company was awarded “Best Emerging Artist” in the festival, The Never Never Theatre Company and our fabulous 2015 NIDA Graduate Lily Black,  are set to take UNEND  to the Adelaide Fringe Festival on March 2nd.
From March 5th to the 9th April , Nathan Page will take the stage in Melbourne under the direction of Deborah Bruce and the Melbourne Theatre company in THE DISTANCE

On 16th April, Shiv Palekar will add another main-stage feather to his cap in the 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama DISGRACED at the Sydney Theatre Company under the direction of Sarah Goodes. For most of 2015, Shiv took Bell Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JUIET across regional Australia with the Bell Player’s program.
April 23rd sees Ellen Bailey continue her hot-streak with the Queensland Theatre Company in their production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Ellen returns to the QTC after delivering a string of stellar performances in the company’s OEDIPUS DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE last May/June. Oedipus-doesntWEB
In August, Linsten Morris’ Veteran of the Stage Alan Flower will remount the hugely successful NEVER DID ME ANY HARM. The production, which first toured as part of the Sydney Festival in 2012, will run through to September 9 this year, with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart and South West WA.
