Beth Allen : Wedding Photos & Article

Beth Allen and Charlie McDermott wed

On Saturday 26th February 2011, Beth Allen got married to Charlie McDermott. The couple have been working together at the Basement Theatre, which is managed by Charlie, as well as creating their own production company, Royale Productions.

Beth Allen & Charlie McDermottIn an article exclusive to New Idea magazine, Beth and Charlie shared their wedding with readers. Their intimate wedding was held in Beth’s parents (Laraine and Jolyon) garden with friends and family in attendance. Amongst those who attended were Antonia Prebble, who was one of Beth’s bridesmaid. The ceremony was performed by Alan Spence (The article said: ‘They were married by Alan Spence, the father of one of Beth’s friends’, we are assuming that it is Victoria Spence’s father – though were not 100%sure).

Key quote from the article:

Beth shed a few tears listening to bridesmaid Antonia Prebble’s speech. She met the Outrageous Fortune star on the set of The Tribe in Wellington, at age 14.
‘She talked about how we first bonded over the fact we both had terrible hairstyles – mine bleached blonde with the intentional feature of 6ins roots, and hers a bright purple bob’

With special thanks to Emma H for the magazine scans and to Jebrill for info on the article. You can read more about the couple and their engagement/wedding plans over at BethAllen.Webs.

New promo pics are available featuring Tori Spence and Beth Allen, who play Nicole and Megan in the Thomas Sainsbury production Little Blonde Hen.

Previous pics featuring Antonia Prebble can be found here and also there is a mini interview with Thomas Sainsbury, who talks about working with Antonia (Elvira), Beth (Megan) and Tori (Nicole), here. The play opens on Thursday 11th June, which today, though by the time this goes up, the first night will have been done and dusted.

[Edit] There’s a review of the production here and here.

Thomas Sainsbury : On Little Blonde Hen & The Tribe Ladies

Thomas Sainsbury

The creator of Little Blonde Hen (featuring three of our favourites actresses), playwrite Thomas Sainsbury, has spoken about working with the stars of The Tribe, their skills and the roles they play in the production, aswell as his playwriting. Read it, it’s not long and is a good insight on the play and how Beth, Tori and Toni work.

Antonia Prebble in Little Blonde Hen You’ve worked with Victoria Spence, Antonia Prebble and Beth Allen in the past, how did you manage to get them together for this production?
The three actresses are great friends in real life so I think they wanted to work together. And then I just wrote a script and sent it their way and they were all keen. And Antonia is currently in hiatus from Outrageous Fortune so it all worked out brilliantly. I just think the universe was smiling on me at the time.

What qualities do you think they each bring to the play?
They’re all terrific actresses and workers in general. Tori’s playing the lead and brings a great, vulnerable centre to the piece. Beth is playing the villain and she’s brilliant at really getting into a character and just asking questions, and working things out all the time, making everything right. And Antonia is playing the OCD maid of honour and brings a brilliant, erratic energy to the part. She also has awesome comic timing and is great at delivery the joke lines, or changing them so they are funnier.

Victoria, Beth, Antonia… And A Little Blonde Hen…?!?

Trudy (Antonia Prebble), Salene (Victoria Spence) and Amber (Beth Allen) in The Tribe No, it’s nothing disturbing like two girls and one cup (pop culture reference – lol), it is infact three of the original Tribe girls in the same stage production!!! It has been 10 years since we saw all three fighting over Bray, on screen, in The Tribe… Things have sure moved on.

Antonia Prebble in Little Blonde Hen Beth Allen, Antonia Prebble and Tori Spence will all be in the Thomas Sainsbury production Little Blonde Hen. They’re no strangers to the writer/director’s work; Victoria previously featured in his production The Beast, Antonia was in And Then You Die and Beth Allen in The Feminine. All the girls are acomplished performers on stage and screen, making it definitely a play to see!

Little Blonde Hen The full cast list for the production is as follows: Beth Allen, Serena Cotton, Siobhan Marshall, Antonia Prebble, Victoria Spence, Claire Van Beek and Jessica Joy Wood. The play “follows a group of girlfriends as their evening disintegrates into drunken debauchery” and is described as “a play about joy, despair and penis straws” – How lovely!

The play is on for four nights from June 11th onwards. More details and full info available here and below. Now, only one question remains… Where can I get a penis straw?!
