The Birthday of the Infanta
With Stefanie Lekkas
4pm (AEST) Friday 5 June 2020
Born and raised in Melbourne, Stefanie quickly developed a love of performing at a young age. After training and performing with the Victorian Youth Theatre for several years, she played in Greek theatre in Melbourne, and was a part of Cornell University’s Skits-O-Phrenics sketch comedy group in New York. Stefanie’s move to Canberra saw her undergo further training with Canberra Youth Theatre, with subsequent performances including the award-winning SKIN (2015), Antigone (2016) and poem every day (2017).
Stefanie’s other theatre credits include Four Day Oedipus (2015); playing the dual role of Belinda/Flavia in the British farce Noises Off (2016) with Canberra Rep; the Short and Sweet shows I Love Lucy (2018) and Dreamland (2019); playing Angela, a 1970s parliamentary hairdresser in We, The People (2019) at Old Parliament House; directing The Conversation Game (2019), an interactive theatre piece created with 7-12 year olds; and playing Greta in Metamorphosis (2019) at The Street Theatre.
Stefanie is thrilled to be a part of a program celebrating the art and age-old practice of storytelling, and looks forward to sharing stories face to face once more.
