2015 season premiere of "Love, Sarah" by Melbourne writer Kathryn Goldie, presented by Panopticon Collective. Theatre People review: "Penelope Langmead makes us giggle from Goldie’s depiction of a stubborn grandmother in denial about a recent stroke. We see Langmead’s years of performing and expertise come to the fore. We relate to her depiction of her condition. We enjoy her conversation over the mobile phone to her grand daughter, of her ageing knees and her justification for pulling weeds in the garden."
Previous short film "Ben and Mary" - portrayal of mother with dementia trying to connect with her son by making a cup of tea. Video attached to profile.

While I am a true contralto with a deep and strong register, I also sing comfortably up to High G and can reach A flat - so almost a dramatic soprano range at the top.

Formal study in a variety of musical instruments, dance, speech, drama and performance from primary school. Studied piano, theory and singing throughout secondary school and sang in productions of Gilbert and Sullivan, The Messiah and other soirée presentations.
Did Higher School Certificate singing.
Play guitar and some percussion.
Voice studies with Marcelle Grose-Menzel , Bettine McCaughan and Graham Clark.

I can work comfortably with and handle all creatures big and small, except spiders.
I can work comfortably with children and infants.
I’ve got a lively, vivid face. Can sing, write and perform poetry. Fun loving - can be quirky, comic and humorous. Can be serious, formal and strong. Know a lot about health. I have a rugged, bright red mobility scooter and love going on bush walks with it.
I’m confident in my own skin and who I am. I love words, numbers and puzzles. I’m great at spelling, word associations and good at maths.
