Paul Slade Smith
Actor & Playwright
• Paul has returned home from the hugely successful (but sadly cut-short) Australian tour of the Broadway musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, directed by Jack O'Brien. His performance as Willy Wonka earned Paul a 2019 Helpmann Award nomination for Best Actor in a musical - an extra-special honor for a visitor from across the Pacific.
• Paul's two plays, The Outsider and Unnecessary Farce, patiently await the return of live theatre across the globe. Both had been scheduled for a (personal) record number of productions in 2020. The plays - and their playwright - look forward to getting back to work, entertaining live audiences.
