STA was delighted to attend the Opening Night of Scapin the Schemer.
We caught up with David O’Halloran after the show to find out more about the man behind Scapin.
David has been acting, and carrying on, for a long, long time. In fact, his sisters say that even as an infant he was dramatic. Trained in Theatre at Uni and CAE, he has played a wide variety of roles in over 250 plays, including Marc Antony, MacDuff, Creon in Antigone, and Long John Silver. He was even a professional at one stage, but gave it up, as he’d rather eat. He has also directed but prefers the easier path of acting. He spent many years at the Lieder, under John and Mary Spicer, and is happy to occasionally return and haunt the stage. He is a Stanislavsky method actor: he put on tons of weight, just for this role!
