Something exciting is happening in Brisbane. This should come as no surprise, except perhaps to those who have up and left, or who are still intent on leaving. Since our weather has become more like Melbourne’s than Melbourne’s, and there’s so much happening across our theatrical landscape, there are fewer reasons to head interstate. But while there’s so much happening here, not all of it is paid work. At least, not in the theatre industry, which is why you see some of our most talented theatre peeps moonlighting as ushers, baristas and singing teachers.

 

It is a somewhat common fact that employment in the professional theatrical industry is scarce, particularly here in the land of Oz.

 

Theatre Performer and Producer, Samuel Klinger, in partnership with Glowbored’s Jeremy Hansen, intends to change this and create a company, which will have a focus on employing out of work creatives and performers, aiming to keep them in the theatre and out of the coffee shops. Too bad if you lose your best barista, who’ll no doubt become a hit in the greenroom of your nearest theatre!

Did you know that Reginald Nelson, consultant and author of How to Start Your Own Theater Company, devotes an entire chapter of his book to making a living as a barista, bartender, waiter and even a pet sitter in his book for aspiring theatre performers chasing a career in the spotlight? Well, no more!

 

Sam has been performing since the age of 5 and has clocked up over 500 individual on- stage performances throughout Australia over the past 15 years. He’s most recently been working on the Australian Tour of CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG and the International hit production of THE ILLUSIONISTS and is currently working on numerous productions based in his hometown of Brisbane. Jeremy has also worked extensively in the industry from a young age and recently founded GlowBored which has seen him working on some of the worlds biggest theatrical productions including LEGALLY BLONDE, MARY POPPINS, ANNIE and will also be working on the Australian tour of GREASE later this year. Together Jeremy and Sam share a passion to develop the industry and provide employment opportunities for professionals with their vision supported by industry leaders.
