Young Umina actor to take lead role in Kings Cross play

An 18-year-old actor from Umina will play a lead role in one of the first theatre productions to be performed after the coronavirus lockdown.

Samson Alston will play genius artist Winston in the play The Credeaux Canvas at the El Rocco Cafe and Theatre, Kings Cross, from Thursday, June 23.

The performances will be limited to 24 socially-distanced audience members, all advised to wear masks.

Samson, who gave up a potential career as a pro surfer to pursue acting, said the role was a dream come true.

"I moved to Bali to pursue my surfing, but I always knew I wanted to get into acting," he said.

After returning to the Coast, Samson completed a Certificate IV in Musical Theatre and began attending industry workshops.

Another young actor, Tom Kelly of Gosford, plays another lead role, Winston's flatmate Jamie.

"Tom and I go way back," Samson said.

"He's around my age and the arts scene on the Coast is small so everyone knows everyone.

"And it's great having a mate in the project," Samson said.
