Anything Goes 2012

Reno Sweeney in Savoyards Musical Comedy Society’s ANYTHING GOES (2012)

 

“Stepping into the wisecracking Reno Sweeney role originally made famous by Ethel Merman, was the buxom Miranda Selwood. Her performance was a class act. She belted her numbers with true Merman brio, led the tap-dancing chorus with frenzy, and landed every laugh in the script.”  Stage Whispers

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 2012

Mrs Lovett in Ignatians Musical Society’s SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET (2012)

“Selwood’s tour-de-force as the needy and manipulative Mrs Lovett was outstanding. Her delivery of the role’s iconic comic numbers, particularly, The Worst Pies in London, was masterful. [Her performance] was razor-sharp.”  Stage Whispers

“Miranda plays [Mrs Lovett] expertly in all her devious cunning… I praise her on her success as this utter, unredeemable villain.” Theatre People

“Rowe may have the title role but this is Miranda Selwood’s show. She is an absolute scream in [By The Sea]; hers is a fearless performance… It’s Selwood who is simply superb, as the bustling, busybody, bonny cook of The Worst Pies in London, Mrs Lovett. She is feisty, cheeky, fast, furious and vocally, absolutely glorious. She clearly relishes the role and why not? It’s a plum one and it seems she was born to play it. I’m sure Selwood must have… practiced her baking whist practicing her singing, in order to perfect the syncopation in her songs, which are surely the most difficult of the show.”  XS Entertainment

“Rowe’s chemistry with Miranda Selwood’s Mrs Lovett is solid. A highlight was their rendition of A Little Priest, where their dark humour and sense of play make the audience laugh, even if they shouldn’t. Selwood’s comic timing is perfect—the love torn Mrs Lovett has a certain innocence with a hint of pure evil. You will need to go and see for yourself what a delight she is to watch.” Aussie Theatre

Guys and Dolls 2011

Miss Adelaide in Blue Fish Theatrical’s GUYS AND DOLLS (2011)

“Miranda Selwood as Miss Adelaide is a joy to watch. Her characterisation is charming and perfectly executed with every moment.” Aussie Theatre

“The absolute stand out and star of this show for me was Selwood. Her lovesick, shrill and excitable Adelaide was a joy to behold and she stole every scene she was in, not dropping character for a single second.” Theatre in Review

“I very much enjoyed the gem, Sue Me sung and played with spot-on gusto by Miranda Selwood (Miss Adelaide)… Ms Selwood [is a] talent to follow, I look forward to seeing [her] work in the future. [She] can belt with the best of them! Greenroom

My Fair Lady 2011

Eliza Doolittle in Savoyards Musical Comedy Society’s MY FAIR LADY (2011)

 

“The plot of My Fair Lady, as we all know, centers on Eliza and fortunately in Savoyards production Miranda Selwood was more than up to the task. Acting the role with conviction and singing the songs with charm, she was very likeable, feisty, and appealing. Her “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” and “Without You” all hit the mark.” Stage Whispers
