NORANDA performer Kate Sisley will be fronting a Fringe World Festival show for the first time.

Ms Sisley, who graduates from John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School in Mirrabooka this year, plays Annabelle in the show, Outback Angels.

The show explores the relationships between Instagram famous teenager Annabelle and her brother and sister who collide at a cattle station after the death of their mother.

It will be showing at the Subilicious Townshend Theatre in Subiaco from January 29 to February 2.

Ms Sisley, who previously won an award for the role at this year’s Youthfest, said she was excited to perform during Fringe.

“We have just been going through the certain bits to fix up some things and rehearse over,” she said.

She enjoyed the role because of the journey her character went through to take care of her young siblings.

“The idea of her losing her mum is really the reason why she is so closed off,” she said.

“She is away from her friends, so it (Instagram) is a way for her to connect and escape the real world and from losing her mum.”

She said she liked becoming a “different person” on stage and the “gratitude” she felt from applause.

Having about 10 years of stage experience, she wanted to pursue theatre at the WA Academy of Performing Arts and as a career.
