Victoria's passion for the arts and entertainment was born in Adelaide, nurtured in Sydney, and is now being further fuelled in Melbourne. Working as producer and talent manager, she has learnt from some of the best in the business and worked with international artists of the highest calibre. If she's not blasting musical theatre soundtracks at her desk and drinking litres of tea, Victoria can be found enjoying a good glass of red or watching Cary Grant movies, but most likely, she's seeing a show somewhere...

StageArt's latest production, bare the musical, showcases a brilliant batch of fresh musical theatre talent who all have fantastic sets of pipes!BWW Review: HAND TO GOD at Alex Theatre February 26, 2018
In February 2012, an unarmed African-American high-school student, Trayvon Martin, was shot dead in Sanford, Florida. His death was a flashpoint in American race relations, sparking protests across the United States and the beginning of a totally new kind of civil-rights movement: #blacklivesmatter.BWW Review: KEVIN RUDD & KERRY O'BRIEN presented by The Wheeler Centre October 26, 2017
Many have seen the famous film featuring a veritable who's who of British screen, and this stage production is just as heartwarming. Based on a true story, the story follows a Women's Institute group in Yorkshire, looking for ways to spice up their humdrum lives and raise money for charity.BWW Review: UGLY DUCKLING at Melbourne Fringe September 21, 2017
Combining art installation, live performance, projections, opera, puppetry and augmented-reality earphones Black Hole Theatre plunges audiences into the confused and surreal world experienced by dementia-suffering Ada (Alison Richards) in an immersive experience that is both magnificent and unsettling.BWW Review: NEXT FALL at Chapel Off Chapel July 20, 2017
Geoffrey Nauffts highly-acclaimed Next Fall is something of a theatrical success story, with the original 2009 production receiving critical praise, an extended Broadway season and a Tony-Award nomination. The play follows the five-year relationship of unlikely couple Adam - a frustrated and neurotic forty-year-old writer and atheist - and Luke, a 20-something year old devout Christian who cannot come out to his parents. Their history is revealed through flashbacks, while in the present Luke fights for life in hospital after an accident and family and friends gather to hold vigil. Perhaps a victim of the reputation that precedes it, this production is only intermittently moving and ultimately it is hard to see what all the fuss is about.BWW Review: Bell Shakespeare's THE MERCHANT OF VENICE July 20, 2017
Moira Finucane's The Rapture: Art vs Extinction fully immerses its audience into what can only be described as a hybrid form of boutique theatre. The result is fantastic, a hurly-burly experience that leaves you walking out of the theatre in pure euphoria.BWW Review: Malthouse presents REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. June 26, 2017
Malthouse Theatre's production of Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. is an explosion of language and imagery that challenges society's gender labels and examines what it is to be a woman. It unapologetically rips away the female archetype and screams for its audience to rally behind its title.BWW Review: THE HAUNTING at Athenaeum Theatre June 19, 2017
As a work of contemporary musical theatre, Ordinary Days never garnered the same acclaim as comparable works created around the time. At first glance it seems obvious why - it is short, unorchestrated, Adam Gwon's score sounds like a collection of rejected numbers from Jason Robert Brown's Songs for a New World and the book concerns itself with the daily interactions of four rather ordinary people. Fortunately, first impressions can be deceiving. This production of Ordinary Days is sublime and verifies the show's central idea that the ordinary can be beautiful.
