Brooke’s creative journey began in her small rural high school in Year Nine when she was reluctantly placed in drama class after wanting to do additional sports studies. By the end of the term, Brooke had to break the news to her very confused parents that she not only wanted to stick with drama as a subject, but also wanted to be an actor. After spending most of high school in Shakespeare plays, Brooke then found community musical theatre where she could channel both passions of singing and acting. Brooke performed in several productions such as West Side Story, A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to The Forum, The Addams’ Family and The Sound of Music.
In her time at ACA, Brooke has delighted in exploring roles such as Kath in Don’s Party (dir. Jonathan Mill), Olga in Three Sisters (dir. Sam Trotman), Gertrude in Hamlet (dir. Anthony Skuse), Left Eye in The Invisible Man (ACA/NIDA collaboration), Doctor Livingstone in Agnes of God (dir. Kim Hardwick), and The Soldier in The Iphigenia Quartet (dir. Claudia Barrie).
Brooke is very eager to put everything she’s learned at ACA into practice and continue to pursue her passion in the industry.
