Angeline Penrith

Angeline is a Wiradjuri and Yuin woman who grew up in the Redfern/Waterloo community.  Making her acting debut at 12 years of age by opening for ABC’s BlackOut, Angeline has gone on to perform in countless film and theatre productions from development to performance.  Her theatre credits include Boori Pryor’s My Girragundji (Canute Productions), The Dreaming – Wake Up Australia (STC), and Winyanboga Yurringa (Moogahlin Performing Arts). Her Television credits include Cleverman and Black Comedy. She is set to appear in Belvoir’s Winyanboga Yurringa in 2019 in the role of Wanda.

Angeline has also been involved in numerous play readings and workshops for Belvoir, Yellamundie First People’s Playwriting Festival and Sydney Theatre Company, and has worked alongside talented directors such as Chris Canute, Leah Purcell and Andrea James.

As a community advocate Angeline believes in self-determination and revival of culture which she demonstrates in her MC work for NAIDOC at the 2018 Flag Raising Ceremony at NCIE, as well as Yabun Festival. Angeline hopes her performance career sets an example for young Indigenous actors and that she can continue to be a role model through her recent NITV Quit Smoking campaign and future projects.
