Meg Farrough

Musical Director & Assis. Director

Meg is delighted to be making their production team debut after diving

into theatre after the realisation of their passion for storytelling through

music. They started singing at primary school and performed through

their childhood. Their involvement in theatre at age 14 while volunteering

with tech crew for the Melbourne Gang Show and was a recurring face at

Gang Show, both on- and off-stage for several years. They recently

completed their Vocal Performance Diploma with Con Brio Examinations

with a focus on musical theatre repertoire, and enjoyed their professional

debut onstage with Dear Mama earlier this year. When not passionately

performing full length musicals to their dog or the traffic light crowd, Meg

schemes about character creation over their sparkling dice hoard.

beginning in dance and then continuing into theatre and musical theatre.

She currently studies musical theatre full time at Associated Studios

Australia where she is currently in her second and final year of her course.

Waterdale’s previous production, Be More Chill, where she was also

choreographer and dance captain. As You Like It is Gui’s second show with

Waterdale and her first foray into directing.

Morgan Andrews


Morgan is a very recent addition to the community theatre scene, fresh

out of high school music and performing arts programs (give or take a few

pandemic years) but has had the absolute honour to choreograph for As

You Like It. Prior to the brutal shift from school to university, Morgan was

dancing several hours a week with STARZ performing arts, heavily involved

with school theatre productions (Chicago, Aida, Chess, A Midsummer

Night’s Dream, Our Country’s Good, Miss Nelson is Missing) and a member

of school choirs and bands. Choreographing for Waterdale’s production of

‘As You Like It’ has filled a performing shaped hole in her heart and she is

delighted to have been involved.
