I have just come back from The Baxter completely excited and invigorated. I went to my first voice class for professional actors more or less since I left drama school 27 years ago! The amazing thing is that it was with my drama school voice teacher, the amazing Liz Mills. What a privilege; spending the hour working with Liz in a gentle, thorough and expert way, getting in touch with my performing voice. I am beyond excited to get back to this kind of work, and am so looking forward to the next session next week. In the meantime I will be thinking about how Liz gently jogged my memory and led me to my shoulder blades (dripping like oil is a phrase I remember from the deep past) and my pelvic floor, and even my tummy which has tripled in size since the last time it was in a class like that.

I cannot imagine how there isn’t a waiting list with the names of every actor in Cape Town fighting to be there. But we know Cape Town; a bit slow on the uptake. Here are the details. Every Tuesday from 1pm to 2pm at The Baxter. Liz will be working in month blocks, and that’s how you pay. Ridiculously cheap for master classes. Message me if you want to contact her.

I am off to breathe. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
