2023 marks Angus’ fifth year with QSE, beginning as an Apprentice in 2019 and working in the Core Ensemble since 2020. His performance roles with QSE include Hotspur in Henry IV Part 1 (2019 Mainstage), supporting roles in The Tragedy of Socrates (2019 Staged Reading), Banquo in Macbeth in the Dark (2020 Radio Play), Private David King in A Sleep of Prisoners (2021 Staged Reading), Benvolio and Paris in Romeo & Juliet (2021 Mainstage), Ned Blunt in The Rover (2022 Mainstage) and Macduff in Macbeth (2022 Mainstage). He also joined the Shakespeare’s Shorts team in 2022 to play King Claudius and the Ghost in Half-Hour Hamlet as well as Macbeth and the Doctor in Express Macbeth.
Angus’ formal acting training began in 2016 at TAFE Queensland (in partnership with the University of Canberra) under the teachings of theatre practitioners such as Lisa O’Neill, Anatoly Frusin, and Rosalind Williams. There, he spent three rigorous years practising theatre methods, studying plays and harnessing his physical, vocal and mental skills for the stage. He graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Acting & Performance. After TAFE, Angus began to practise directing alongside his acting. In 2019, he successfully produced his directorial debut of Have I None by Edward Bond for the Anywhere Festival at Boggo Road Gaol; this was one of the first theatre performances to be held in that venue. In 2021, he directed his first Shakespeare production of As You Like It for Anywhere Festival, staged in the backyard of his house, with the support of QSE.
His other theatre credits include: Alan Strang in Equus (Ad Astra); The Two Noble Kinsmen (Skimble Skamble Fools); Tower of Babel (Baran Theatre and Metro Arts); 13 (TAFE); A Midsummer Night’s Dream (TAFE); O Solo Mio #6 (TAFE); Leaves of Grass (TAFE), and Grimm Fairy Tales (La Boite Young Actors Company at the Festival of Australian Student Theatre).
