Laura has spent the past year gaining lots of experience in many different fields, from acting, to publicity, to arts administration. She absolutely loves that her life is consumed with new and exciting things all the time, and her passion for this industry grows more and more with each project she is involved in. In February 2014, Laura, along with a group of fellow female graduates gained a one week residency at Tamarama Rock Surfers Theatre, as a part of their Summer Camp season. They spent the week in creative development for a project that may surface in the future. Laura loved this experience and it only solidified her love for all things creative. In October this year, Laura will embark on her journey to schools around the country with four other performers, in a touring production of Macbeth, with Bard on the Beach Shakespeare company. After this, she will also stay on for their Summer Season in A Midsummer Night’s Dream & The Tempest. She cannot wait to bring the Bard to the beach for all to enjoy, and for all future opportunities that will present themselves in the years to come.
