Kit has been involved in the theatre industry for several years, during his time studying a Bachelor of Arts & Bachelor of Laws at the University of Auckland. His passion for theatre has seen him thrive both on and off stage - directing, producing and performing. He is currently producing and directing shows while working in Marketing & Events for the Wallace Arts Trust. His interests and passions, however still bring him back to Musical Theatre. Kit is excited by the vision Rebel Theatre has for New Zealand Musical Theatre and is passionate about compelling storytelling through the medium of music.
By day Verity writes and manages an awesome team at Intelligent Ink, a communications agency that loves telling people's stories. It's that love of telling stories that also drives her passion for musical theatre – she believes there's nothing better than laughing and crying along with the actors (or doing the same for an audience when you're on stage). She concedes that she's a total sap though, so it’s not hard to make her cry! She’s excited to be part of Rebel Theatre because there are so many talented Kiwis out there, and a real gap in the market for exciting, quality professional musical theatre.
Seamus has had a passion for theatre for as long as he can remember. This has seen him involved with a variety of theatre forms across Auckland. He has directed up to 220 young performers for the National Youth Theatre Company and his work with Massive Theatre Company led to a love of physical theatre and visual storytelling. This got him involved with The People Who Play with Theatre, developing a love of puppetry. It’s been his involvement in that world of visual storytelling that has driven him to seek theatre that isn’t typically available in Auckland. Theatre that isn’t confined by the expectations that say what theatre can or can’t be.
Greg’s involvement within Musical Theatre began at the age of 12 when a teacher noticed a spark that needed to be seen and encouraged him to join a youth theatre company. He instantly fell in love and has been involved ever since. His love for performing and creating saw him graduate from South Seas Film School in 2012, majoring in screen writing and directing. Greg has been involved in story telling for several years having written, directed and produced the short film Brothers by Chance. Despite being more actively involved in Film & TV, Greg’s passion for Musical Theatre has not diminished. He is both honoured and excited to bring New Zealand audiences fresh, unique and inspiring theatre.
Morgyn’s passion for theatre started at a young age, watching her Grandmother performing at retirement villages. This was further developed whilst she studied theatre & film at university in Canterbury. Her passion is for innovative theatre that is both transformative and visceral. After finishing her Honours, Morgyn made her way up to the big smoke to take the Auckland theatre scene by storm, working as an actress in Theatre, Film & Television. You may have seen her performing in several basement shows and local advertisements. Morgyn is excited to be involved with a theatre company where rebellious local performers and creatives are encouraged to take a daring approach to musical theatre.
