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.
