Having just finished year 12, Young Australian of the Year, Kathleen Woods has kept busy with her on-going interest in guides, volunteering at 5THE FM, editing two radio plays with fellow ex-student Nikki-Lee Lucas and directing a play with Ovation in Mt Gambier.
The play she is assisting with is on tonight at the Sir Robert Helpman Theatre, beginning at 6-30 pm, is called Club Neverland and features 7-15 year old students from Primary to mid year High School. Senior students assist with the production.
Kathleen said she assists the director, and while a cast of twenty is a big job to direct, the cast is supported by ten more students behind the scenes.
Her interest in directing came from watching television and always wondering about the behind the scenes work and how they made it work. This fueled her interest which may now lead to a career in directing.
