Example text

The actress Deborah Kennedy, who followed a few years after me at Hornsby High, says that at her time there was a regulation known as ‘the Jacki Weaver Rule’, which proclaimed that boys were not only forbidden within the school gates but they weren’t even allowed on the nature strip around the school fence. Because I was underage, my father had to sign the contract with the Phillip Theatre. I had to provide twelve performances a week (two shows daily for six days) for 30 pounds a week, a small fortune at a time when my pocket money was one pound a week.

Compare then with now, if you will. Today dramatic art has become so valued and respected that it’s an important part of the school curriculum, rather than being looked on as a frivolous hobby as it was in my day. Young people interested in theatre and film now, even if their eventual career is destined to be elsewhere, are fantastically lucky to have such opportunities. Late in 1962, the year in which I turned fifteen, there was an article in the Daily Mirror about a search being conducted by Sydney’s Phillip Theatre for a Cinderella to play opposite the Prince, to be played by Bryan Davies, an eighteen-year-old singing heart-throb who already had his own eponymous TV series.

When I began First Year (Year 7) there I couldn’t reach the tuckshop counter. I was twelve and a half years old and four feet seven (139 centimetres). Then I shot up four and a half inches (about 11 centimetres) in the next year. And never grew another skerrick. Ever. One of my best friends at school was Jenny Hoffmann, who is a stunning six-foot redhead. We used to go to drama school together, to the Rathbone Academy, where I went after I moved to the North Shore and left the St George Children’s Theatre.
