Nina's Story

Having started her work with School2Stage in one of our earliest seasons, Nina has been a lasting figure with S2S. As an actor in the 2016 “Cause & Effect” season, Nina appeared in the production ‘Clockwork Carnivale’ where she would quickly come to love the company’s inner workings of theatre. In 2018, Nina would reignite her involvement with School2Stage and take part in the “All Or Nothing” season in the show ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ and “Recipe for Disaster” in ‘Theatre is Dead & Shakespeare Killed It.’

 

Her work with the company grew greater as she undertook the Assistant Director’s Pathway Program in 2019 where she assistant directed alongside previous and present directors. Her assistant direction includes S2S productions such as, ‘Pure Garbage’ at QPAC and ‘Catastrophe’ as seen at the Brisbane Powerhouse. By the end of the program, Nina would go on to direct her own show at the Judith Wright Centre, “Flushed in Fiction’ as part of the “Don’t Mess It Up” season. Thereafter, Nina became an intern for the company, where she would also perform in School2Stage’s first Mainhouse event, ‘Lost in the Post’. In the 2020 season, “The Show Must Go On,” Nina also assisted in the production as the sound technician.

 

Most recently, she has become one of the core team members of School2Stage and plays an important role as the School Opportunities Coordinator. She communicates with schools throughout Brisbane and beyond, looking for young actors fond of theatre as much as her. As a director, Nina likes to play with elements of comedy, adventure and thriller. Her interests lie in making something fictional feel and come to fruition on stage.
