Laurie Mills has been involved with community theatre in Auckland throughout his adult life, mainly as an actor and director at Howick Little Theatre.
He last directed at Dolphin 20 years ago and looks forward to renewing his friendship here. Laurie has also directed numerous productions for the Howick & Children’s Theatre where he is now a proud patron. He has a definite liking for plays set in the past, distant or recent, and One Man is no exception.
He first visited Brighton in 1968, so his memories of the city and of England in the 60s are reasonably authentic!
Trained at the award winning Pineapple Performing Arts School in London, Natasha performed in London’s West End in both dramatic and musical theatre productions before returning to NZ where she performed the role of Helena in the Herald Theatre production of Midsummer Night’s Dream. She has worked in a number of TV commercials and short films.
