STARLET: “I want to become an actress when I get older. I want to act for as long as I can,” Maiah said. She plays the leading role in Ruby Productions Goldilocks.

For Maiah Duffy Brown, landing the lead role in Ruby Productions Goldilocks was a dream come true.

Two days before the 10-year-old was told she would play the lead role as Goldilocks, she had a dream she got the part.

“When I woke up, at first, I thought it was real and I really did get the role. But then I realised it was all a dream and felt a little upset,” the Bella Vista resident explained.

“A few days later I was told I got the part and I was so excited!”

Maiah’s mother, Emma Duffy said she couldn’t have been prouder of her daughter.

“She absolutely loves acting and all her teachers tell me they think we will all see Maiah on the big screen one day,” Ms Duffy said.

“Even though she’s only been taking drama lessons for the last two years, her passion for acting shines bright. By taking part in Goldilocksand playing the main character, she has taken her acting to the next level.”

Unlike the traditional story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Ruby Productions version tells the tale of a grown up Goldilocks who has got herself intonewmischief.

Filled with all kinds of creatures like witches, wolves and weasels, characters bring afairy tale land to life as theyjourney through it withGoldilocks.

Maiah’s father, Alex Brownis arguably one of her biggest fans. He plays the role of Wicked Witch Bette in the production.

“I thought if I was driving my daughter to and from rehearsals and supporting her personal interest,I might as well audition and be a part of the show too,” Mr Brown enthused.

“I didn’t expect to land the part because I’m not an actor. The last time I was on stage was in a high school play.”

Maiah, theHelen O’Grady Drama Academy student said having her father on stage with her is “a very fun experience”.

“Even if my dad wasn’t on stage with me, I would still have the confidence to act. But having him there with me gives me lots of encouragement to do my best,” she said.

Mr Brown said he has enjoyed extra bonding time with his daughter andbeing apart of “such an amazing cast”.

“The cast ranges from all ages between sevenup to early 40s,” he said.

“We’re all very supportive of one another and are like a drama family,” Maiah added.

“I thank my family, my drama teachers and my school teachers –especiallyMissGraham –for always supporting me and helping me do my best.”

Wicked Witch Bette: “Maiah and I often rehearse our lines together at home or even in the car. We bounce off one another,” Mr Brown said.
