REBECCA ROLLE - Jill/Bill the Postman

There she had the privilege of portraying varied roles including Milly Pontipee in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Iris in Fame before leading her cohort in their final musical Little Women as Jo March.

Since graduating, Rebecca has appeared in Understudy Production's rendition of Sweet Charity and is thrilled to join CDP Theatre Producers in the national tour of The 91-Storey Treehouse.



Samuel Welsh

SAMUEL WELSH - Andy

Samuel was born and raised in the coastal town of Port Macquarie on the NSW Mid North Coast. From an early age, he always had a love for performing, predominately through music. Throughout high school, he decided to combine his musical background, along with his fondness for storytelling, and underwent further training in all disciplines of the performing arts.

Samuel went on to study the three-year bachelor course at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), graduating in 2016. Whilst there, he played the roles of Twig in Jay-James Moody's production of Bring It On: The Musical, as well as Ginger in the Australian premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Beautiful Game, directed by Meryl Tankard.

Upon graduating, he teamed up with Gold Coast-based theatre company CherryCar Productions, playing the role of Len in the new Australian work The One-Armed Bandit. Most recently, he appeared as Adam in the Australian play Relative Merits, revived by Lambert-House Enterprises. Samuel played Andy in the national tour of The 78-Storey Treehouse in 2018.

Samuel now resides in Sydney, and is humbled and excited to be back in the role of Andy in The 91-Storey Treehouse.
