Rebecca Hazel
Hannah / Ivy Rose

Rebecca comes from Cwmbran, a small town in the South Wales Valleys. Being born and raised in the country known as ‘The Land of Song’, it was inevitable that Rebecca caught the musical bug from a young age!
After graduating with a First Class BA (Hons) degree in English & Drama from UWIC, Cardiff, she realised that no amount of books could appease her desire to perform. She soon made the move across the border to England where she trained at the Guildford School of Acting.
She was a member of the National Youth Music Theatre, appearing in their production of Songs For A New World (Bridewell Theatre) after previously playing the role of ‘Johanna’ in their productions of Sweeney Todd (Rose Theatre & Village Underground, London). A highlight of her career so far was in 2011 when she was invited to perform at A Celebration of Young People in the Performing Arts, a reception held by HM The Queen at Buckingham Palace.
In 2014 she played ‘Miranda’ in a modern adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest (Waterloo East Theatre) and followed this by spending Christmas playing ‘Cinderella’ in Hertford Theatre’s annual pantomime.
After playing ‘Virginia’ in Vienna’s English Theatre’s touring cast of Spooked! last year, Rebecca is absolutely thrilled to return to Austria for a second time!

Andrew Walker
Ben Chavvi / Sam / Daniel / Breen

Andrew has recently finished studying his university degree in Acting. After being inspired by the amazing stories and spectacle of what happens whilst watching theatre, Andrew decided to learn the ways and dedicate his time and education in developing the art of acting. During his time at drama school, Andrew had the chance to play many different characters from many different play texts. As well as it being incredibly fun for Andrew to perform as so many different characters, it was also incredibly rewarding to be able to have an effect and move an audience emotionally. Whether that be to complete hysterics or sadness. As well as acting, Andrew is a keen musician, always either humming a tune or tapping out a beat. Andrews love for music came about during his early teens where he was fascinated by the British “Mod” subculture. Influenced by an array of British bands, Andrew decided to give song writing a go, being a firm believer of when you put your mind to something anything is possible. Now Andrew spends his time between living in London, working in a Jamie Oliver restaurant serving beautiful Italian food, writing and playing music to audiences across London and pursuing his professional acting career.

Saul Boyer
Darrell / Davey / Giovanni

Saul Boyer is an actor, writer and director who studied at Cambridge University, (where he spent most of his time avoiding writing essays and acting in plays instead).
He enjoys acting in serious theatre and was the Narrator in a production of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale, earlier this year. But his true vocation is performing in absurd comic plays – including this one. When not showing off on stage, he writes serious plays (Broken Glass, which won a Cambridge Marlowe Prize in 2014) and extremely silly ones (which he won’t bore you with).
