Charlotte Strantzen is a Melbourne-based performer with extensive professional experience and training. Since graduating from Rusden with a Bachelor of Arts (Drama/Performance Studies major) in 1997, Charlotte has been in high demand as an actor, dancer, presenter and voiceover artist, and has enjoyed the variety of working both onstage and behind-the-scenes in technical areas including production management, stage management, publicity, sound and lighting operation.
With a particular passion for Shakespeare and children's theatre, and experience in comedy & improvisation, contemporary works and experimental theatre, career highlights thus far have included two years touring with the Flying Bookworm Theatre Company, a season in Apollo Bay playing Olivia in Green Cyc's Twelfth Night, producing and appearing as the Ringmaster in Darragh Martin's Everything is Invisible for Melbourne Fringe Festival 2005, and three summers playing Mole in Glenn Elston's Wind in the Willows in the Royal Botanic Gardens. In recent years, Charlotte spent 5 months on the road with comedian Ross Noble as part of his Australian/New Zealand Randomist tour, was Production Manager on the critically acclaimed 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival hit, Macbeth Re-Arisen, and co-founded internationally-touring theatre company, Three to a Room, taking Edinburgh by storm again in 2007 and 2008. These days, she can often be found hosting murder mysteries or educating youngsters on environmental matters at Banyule's Rethink Education Centre.
