Past-student Scarlett Waters is currently performing in Return to Earth.
The Griffin Independent production has received stellar reviews.
Congratulations to the team behind Lally Katz's wonderful, quirky play!
"There’s plenty of creative thought and talent behind this production of Return to Earth and it does serve as a reminder as to why Lally Katz is one of our most exciting and innovative playwrights."
Time Out Sydney
"As Catta, Scarlett Waters came dangerously close to breaking your heart on several occasions and very nearly stole every scene she was in... Dressed in her golden kangaroo onesie, ten-year-old Waters had an integrity, honesty and openness that belied her age."
The Spell of Waking Hours
"The stand out performance is young actress Scarlett Waters as Catta. She is engaging, genuine and very very funny. She plays the ill character Catta like an old pro and pulls at the audience heart strings."
Congratulations to 10-year-old Scarlett Waters, currently performing in Griffin Independent's Return to Earth. The play, written by Lally Katz, is making its Sydney premiere throughout September.
Scarlett plays a young girl named Catta who has kidney failure. In an interview with Griffin, Scarlett says, "Catta is an adult in a kid’s body. Don’t get the wrong message, in spirit she is – an adult – in a kid’s body. Catta is a great singer but not too good at roller skating! Catta is a bit eccentric. She calls her Aunty Alice, Erika but Erika is Alice’s real name anyway. Her mum died, so she has been brought up by her father."
Scarlett and her brother Ned were two of the first students at Amy's private studio. Those who attended Opening Doors - A Showcase of Talent from Amy Hume Speech & Drama Studio in August 2012 may remember Scarlett as the gum-chewing fanatic, Violet Beauregarde. Scarlett and Ned are both looking forward to getting back into lessons when Amy returns to Sydney later this year.
