Sara Burnham

SaraHeadshotSara loved performing from an early age and became involved in many performance projects at an amateur level before studying, and graduating in 2012, from Victoria University (VU) with a degree in Performing Arts. During her time at uni she had the opportunity to study the elements of performance and performance-creating with a focus on improvisation and movement.
While still studying at VU Sara got involved with Moving Theatre, a theatre group started by a few students at her uni. She played Brenda the Witch, in Holka Polka (2008), and also collaborated with them on creating self devised plays such as Once Upon a Time (2009), and Manonita (2010), playing lead roles in both of these productions.
Concurrently with her performance studies she also joined various other community-based theatre groups. Her character of the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland (Heidelberg Theatre Company 2010) is still one of her favourite roles. Soon after she was also involved with the theatre group Purely Pensive Productions and its successful play Away (2011), and the following year the production of Two Weeks With The Queen (2012).
Also undertaken over the same intensive period was a short course at Western Edge Youth Company in 2008. This covered such skills as fairytale story telling, performance writing and different styles in puppetry. Previously, Sara had also trained in musical theatre and advanced drama at Centerstage Performing Arts School from 1999 to 2002, and undertook further training at the same academy from 2011 to 2012 to train in singing, musical theatre and semi-pro drama.
Last year Sara completed the Acting Studio course at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), which included VCA’s renowned Shakespeare Intensive program.
At present, Sara works part time as a children’s party entertainer and has also branched out into diverse roles for independent film makers.
Sara has recently signed on to be represented by Therese Clifford Management (TCM), a talent management agency, and will continue to be involved in both theatre and film.
She maintains an ongoing enthusiasm for the diversity of projects that the performing arts industry can provide, and is delighted to be a part of Guardian Angel as supporting cast and working with a highly professional production team.
