PSP Events continues to innovate and they are looking forward to bringing an exciting brand of entertainment to Perth for many years to come.
Donna’s performing career goes back to her childhood where she came up through the ranks of the Southern Ballet Company in Christchurch, before going on to find success in boith television and theatre.
She featured in the popular television talent show ‘Opportunity Knocks’ eventually finishing in second place for that season. That launched her into another top rating TV show, ’12 Bar Rhythm’n Shoes’.
Her professional theatrical credits include productions such as Sweet Charity, Gypsy, Pirates, Evita, Grease in which she starred alongside a young Russell Crowe, and The Rocky Horror Show, (again with Crowe) for which she was also choreographer and assistant director.
On the international stage she featured in the cast of the Hawaiian production of Evita and toured through the US, Australia, and New Zealand as a singer/ dancer and choreographer with the Queen City Big Band, which produced a number of top jazz and session musicians including David Prichard Blunt, the musical director and arranger for Australian Idol and Marcia Hines.
Brett broke into professional theatre as a cast member of the New Zealand touring production of Evita. He went on to appear in many shows including Jesus Christ Superstar, Chicago, Sweet Charity, Pirates,West Side Story, and The Rocky Horror Show. Showing his versatility, he also work behind the scenes in as a technician on numerous productions which gave him a good base of knowledge of the entire theatrical process. Like many struggling actors, he gained a invaluable experience doing stunt work on movies, modelling and doing TV commercials.
