Benefit concert for local actress
A benefit concert for local actress Imogen Sage Lindquist-Callow will be held on Sunday, January 22, at Wagstaffe Hall.
The proceeds of the concert will be used to help her take a place at a drama school in London.
"Imogen is a talented young local actress who has won a place at London's prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama," said Bell Shakespeare Company artistic director Mr John Bell, who will speak at the concert.
The benefit will consist of stories by John Bell and his wife Anna Volska, Graeme Blundell and Greig Pickhaver about their starts in show business, performances by saxophonist Phillip Johnston, the Half Tides Rock Choir, poet philosopher David Dufty and a film by Imogen's mum Bev Callow.
Ms Lindquist-Callow said she was over the moon that John Bell has offered his time.
"I can't believe it.
"It's quite special to me that he would be so generous, as some years back I read that when he was young he moved to England to act, and this was one of the reasons I was inspired to look into the possibility of studying acting in London."
Ms Lindquist-Callow attended Pretty Beach Public School and Barrenjoey High School before going to Newtown High School of the Performing Arts.
