Immediately prior to working at The Court Theatre, Roanna Dalziel worked at Creative NZ in Wellington as the senior theatre adviser. Over the 15 years before that she’s spent time balancing two very different careers in TV/theatre and as a lawyer.
In London, Roanna self-produced a short season of her work Lost in Thought and then an abridged version of As You Like It. Acting highlights include: Beanie Brown (a bald nurse) on Shortland Street, Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing for Black Cat Theatre, Lady Macbeth for Cambridge Shakespeare Festival and Moira in the UK premier of Foreskin's Lament. She has also performed stand-up and taught improv.
