LIZ CONNORS

She has trained in Canada, England, New York and Australia with qualifications from La Trobe University, Lancaster University, London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and the University of Melbourne (VCA) including Shakespeare, physical theatre skills, LABAN Movement Analysis, the Williamson Technique (NY)  and Actor Training Methodologies (VCA). She has directed such classics as 'The Importance of Being Earnest' (Oscar Wilde), 'Long Days Journey Into Night' (Eugene O'Neill), Talking Heads (Alan Bennett), 'Junk Rooms' (Stephanie Briarwood), 'Salute the Man' (Jeannie Haughton), 'Laundry & Bourbon' (James McClure) and 'The Window Outside' (Belinda Lopez, 2012)

As an actor Liz has performed Shirley in Willy Russell's one-woman play "Shirley Valentine", Oriel in Tim Winton's "Cloudstreet", Lindsey in Hannie Rayson's "Life after George", the Countess in Shakespeare's "All's Well that Ends Well" and Nell in Caryl Churchill's "FEN" to name a few. TV and film credits include Neighbours, It's A Date, The Caretaker (Tom Conyers Director) and Walk the Talk (Dreamworks/21st Century Fox, Shirley Barrett Director).
