Hey there – welcome!
My name is Naarah, pronounced ‘nay-ah-rah’.
I’m an actor, performer and creative who failed music at school but now works entirely in the wonderful world of the arts. I’m a Gija woman from the Kimberley but proudly grew up in my little island home of Tassie. I spend my days wrapped in the creative world and so far, it’s brought me on a wild journey!
Aside from all things artsy, you’ll find me outdoors, exploring some amazing corners of this world, at a specialty coffee spot, in the sunshine, at pilates, or most definitely at brunch. Although spread out across both Australia and the world, my family & mob mean the world to me – with a special shoutout to my Mummah Barnes, who if you keep following my journey you’ll definitely come to know and adore. As my Mummah said, I was always singing before I was talking and dancing before I was walking.
So here I am writing and here you are reading – one huge welcome to you! Thanks for being curious enough to click on my name.
After ‘winging it’ in the industry in Australia for the last few years, I’ve finally been accepted into a drama school and one of the best in the world at that, the Royal Academy of Music in London! I’m having the time of my life studying Musical Theatre full-time and working with some of the west-end’s best. Thank you to Disney Theatrical and Aurora Education Foundation for making this life-changing opportunity possible. I look forward to re-joining the industry stronger than ever in June 2024!
