Jannette Novice

Some of you might know me by my stage name Jannette de Brequet.  I sub-majored in Drama at Uni SA, but my real passion has always been for musical theatre, since taking lessons with Jennifer McDonnell in 2007.  Most enjoyable were my performances in ‘The Mikado’ for the SA Light Opera Society; and, ‘Loosely Broadway’ for Noarlunga Theatre Company, where I not only had to sing a lot, but also dance on stage for the first time.  My current commitment to sport has meant that I haven’t had time to tread the boards for quite a few years.  I thank the organisers of CentreStage for giving me the opportunity to sing for you tonight.  Sit back, relax, and let the show begin.
