PENN as IMELDA
Raised on the Peninsula, Sarah participated in several amateur
theatre productions and local plays during her school years.
After undertaking work experience at the National Institute
of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and completing courses at the
Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), she was well
and truly bitten by the acting bug.
She is a qualified primary school teacher and secondary drama
teacher, completing her Bachelor of Arts (Drama)/Bachelor of
Teaching degrees in June of 2003. Earlier that same year, she
wrote and performed in a one woman short Commedia play Nonna
Unfortunato and has organised and directed several plays
through her placement in primary schools during her degree. Major
theatre credits as an actor include the touring production of
Monash Universitys The White Rose staged
in Melbourne and Singapore. Film credits include the lead role
of "Fiona" in fixNATION (screened on
Foxtel in 2005).
Sarah has since completed a Master of Arts in Theatre Practices
from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts
(WAAPA), graduating in September 2005. Her most recent
stage appearance was in the lead role of "Sonia" for
CEF Players' Uncle Vanya in August 2006.
