When COVID-19 hit Australian shores in early 2020 it wasn't long before the arts world took some of the heaviest blows with theatres and venues quickly closing across the country. Just two of thousands to be let go from their own theatre jobs Elizabeth Gunther and Victoria Bullard saw an opportunity to foster a sense of community in a time of great social Isolation.
Both recent graduates from The Australian Institute of Musics Musical Theatre program, the pair created PS. Meet Me At Stage Door, a fortnightly podcast, recorded via video call during the early lockdown days bringing together guests from all over Australia and overseas to stay connected and share stories with the greater theatre community.
Meet The Hosts
Born in Canberra and raised in Sydney, Tori always dreamed of performing. Though that dream didn’t start on the stage, but rather on Ice! But after many years of being a competitive figure skater, her interest turned to theatre and the stage. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Music Theatre, Tori has played a variety of roles such as Abigail Williams in The Crucible (Campbelltown Theatre Group) and Celeste II in Sunday In The Park with George (UNSW: Musical Theatre Society). She was also a part of the inaugural production for Reprise Theatre Co titled “Tales of Forveaux”. Hosting and creating this podcast has been a long-standing dream of Tori’s and she is over the moon to be able to share this experience with her over caffeinated thespian, Libby! Tori cannot wait to share more of her thoughts, feelings and unsolicited opinions on everything Theatre!
Originally from the Gold Coast, Eliza moved to Sydney to turn her theatre obsession into a career in musical theatre. Since graduating from the Australian Institute of Music (Musical Theatre) in 2018 she has performed various roles including Veronica Sawyer in Heathers (MacMs) and Yvonne/Naomi in Sunday In The Park With George (UNSW: Musical Theatre Society). She was also a vocal soloist in Reprise Theatre Company’s cabaret Tales of Forveaux and Edges with MUSE. Alongside this she also appeared in the featured ensemble of a new developing musical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (written by Andrew Freeborn). Most recently she has appeared as a guest in ModiBodi’s new podcast The Red Tales. Eliza is thrilled to be hosting this show alongside our other over caffeinated thespian, Tori, and can’t wait to share her insight and even some cheeky theatre mishaps with you all.
