Behind the Breakout: Courtney Cavallaro

Courtney Cavallaro is one of those people you want to be friends with. She's both a true talent and a true delight to banter with.

The Brisbane native moved to Perth in 2018 to study Performance Making at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). Upon graduation, Courtney was awarded the Belinda Dunbar Prize (recognising the most outstanding student) and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Performing Arts WA Awards shortly after.

Since then, she's gone from strength to strength, being selected for the AFTRS National Talent Camp in 2022, gracing our screens in Netflix's Irreverent, playing Celia in As You Like It for Queensland Theatre (for which she was nominated for two Queensland Theatre Awards 🤯), and now touring Australia with New Theatricals' season of Gaslight.

Here, we talk to Courtney about wearing multiple hats, skipping rope on main stages, and the actual work of manifestation.
