Grace Drysdale-Dunn


A kiwi kid, through and through, this Matamata girl has been acting all her life. A rural early life meant no TV so their family made their own entertainment – making up plays, participating in sing-a-longs and performing for family and friends. From Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz at aged 9, to Year 13 in London at the Globe Theatre as part of the 2014 Young Shakespeare Company, this delightful lady has a huge amount of performing experience to draw on.

You may also have seen her working as a tour guide/gardener at Hobbiton, based out of Matamata. Into reading and yoga, Grace is looking forward to the challenge of touring theatre and making sure she gives 100% to every performance! 

If Grace could be a Pixar character, she would be Russel from “Up” purely to own Doug the Dog – the passionately loyal, adoring and energetic fan!
