MLA CALL FOR CAST 'TOP 14' - 2023

Megan Miller is a recent Honours graduate in Theatre and Performance from Wits University and is currently working as both an actress and designer in Johannesburg.

As an actress she prides herself in being versatile – able to do dramatic, still monologues, sing and dance musical theatre numbers, and venture boldly into comedic clowning and poor theatre. She has acted in numerous plays including Naledi Modipa’s When Hope Met Themba (National Arts Festival 2019) and Saul Kemack’s Nuclear (Wits 2019).

She is now interested in venturing further into film acting and has recently featured in two short films – When The Moon Wanes (2022) by Sharlene Khan, and The Fools (2023) by Olivia Mortimer and Damien Wantenaar.

Megan also has experience as a dancer, having completed her Advanced I Royal Academy of Dance exam with distinction for Ballet.

As a designer, she gravitates towards the whimsical and surreal in her work and aims to challenge the theatre space, making way for new and innovative applications of set, stage, and costume design. Recently, she spearheaded the set up of Revolutionary Love (2022), a research exhibition curated by Stacy Hardy and Tamara Ghurs. She then designed a traveling theatre production - KwaSha Theatre Company’s Kids of Amandla Street (2022), directed by Sibahle Mangena. She has also ventured into commercial design with Netcare’s #SocksForDocs campaign, 2021, helping them earn a 195% increase in engagement rate on their Facebook page. Currently, she is working for the Joburg Theatre as a designer on their upcoming show, Saturday Night at The Palace.

With experience as both an actress and designer, Megan has become a well-rounded performer, with experience both on and behind the camera. Through this, Megan has developed a keen sense for visual storytelling helping her tell stories more vividly through gesture, positioning, costume, colour, and props.
