2017 Role in short non-verbal film for VCA Masters Student presentation.
2016 Support actor with comedian Ash Williams for cheeky commercial made by Kamber on behalf of Nutrition Australia, to promote the consumption of carrots by the young!
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.
Have sung since very young, performing in a range of settings, venues and audiences. I have sung solo and in groups and choirs large and small, at many community events, including street performance with dance and drama.
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.
Repertoire and styles sung include oratorio, opera, Lieder, madrigal, folk, ballad and jazz.
