"I'm incredibly excited to be performing 'Cross Legged' in the CFF. It has been an amazing journey and seeing both the show and the cast develop along the way has been inspiring. It is an honour and a privilege to work with such dedicated and wonderful people and I cannot wait for everyone's hard work to come to fruition."
Amber Wilkshire (playing Cody -The Lead)
"Both nervous and excited! Nervous, as it would be my first time performing on stage in a theatre production. However, I'm still excited as I get to perform with a wonderful group of talented people and bring the directors script to life."
Helen Ho (playing Eliza - Cody's Sister)
"Excited, but also nervous. Slightly terrified, because I have never choreographed and performed a 2-minute solo dance before. But, feeling proud that I managed to choreograph a dance piece."
Imbi Mannik (playing Rochelle - The Unpredictable)
"I am excited and nervous about being involved in CFF. The idea of getting back on a stage gives me goosebumps and I'm loving the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people."
Corey Morris (playing Ayreon - The Magician)
"I only started acting at the beginning of this year and I'm really excited to have this cabaret opportunity. It's a fantastic show and it's a privilege to be a part of it!"
Kimberley Hannah (playing Christy - The Waitress)
"I am excited and terrified at the same time, because my character has to sing! I have never done this before, so it's a really big deal!"
Maria Benazic (playing Carlotta - Ms Cabaret)
"I'm really looking forward to performing in the Cabaret Fringe Festival. Both the cast and director have worked really hard, and have been very supportive and professional, even though this is the first performance for many of them. Most of the cast I have known for less than 10 weeks, but I have no fear going forward because I know if I fall, they'll have my back, just as I will have theirs."
Scott Wilkshire (playing Andre - The Host)
Tema: Have some of the crew performed on stage before? Has anyone been a part of your other shows that you hosted as part of Adelaide Fringe (or any other similar festivals that you may have been a part of)?
Michael: Sourced Up Talent have had multiple productions in previous Adelaide Fringe Seasons; however, this is a first for the Cabaret Fringe Festival. I have the best of both worlds. I am lucky enough to have talented cast involved from my previous productions, but also lucky enough to be working with people who have never performed before who have amazing hidden talents and potential.
Tema: What are you anticipating from being a part of ACF?
Michael: I am anticipating a night full of fun!
I want the cast to have a fantastic time and for them to get the applause they deserve. Since most of them haven't performed before, I expect this will open their eyes somewhat to the world of the performing arts. I can't wait to see them return in ACF 2019.
Tema: Is there anything else that you'd like your audience to know about Cross Legged?
Michael: The script was written specifically to the strengths of the cast members. I found that they all had specific talents, which I have incorporated into the show and they will be performing live on stage.
Performing in just 2 shows on one day (June 16) at the Parks Community Theatre in Angle Park, Cross Legged will help channel your inner dreams, passions, and desires and the importance of chasing towards the achievements of these elements for your own self-satisfaction!
