Scott Middleton is an Australian born actor currently based in Melbourne.
After graduating with his bachelor degree from the University of Ballarat Arts Academy in 2008 Scott worked consistently in film, television and theatre all over Australia for 6 years. Europe beckoned and he spent 9 months teaching english through performance and running workshops in Italy in 2014. While in Italy he also trained intensively in Commedia Dell' Arte with Antonio Fava.
The following year Scott was accepted to study his masters degree at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London; one of the worlds most prestigious training academies. Following this training he stayed in London and gained work in theatre and commercials both in the UK and Europe while also completed advanced training with Frantic Assembly in London. Scott began sharing his skills teaching at some of London's finest academies as well as running independent workshops through his theatre company Psychopomp! Theatre Collective.
After his visa came to an end Scott returned to Australia before being offered a role in a show to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show received critical acclaim with 4 star reviews and sold out houses making it a successful debut for Scott at the worlds biggest theatre festival.
Bringing home a wealth of worldly experience and expertise Scott is now based in Melbourne while still heavily involved in collaborations with colleagues all over the globe. He still collaborates with Psychopomp! in London and recently produced the first show with his new Bendigo based collaborative company That's Classic Entertainment. He is seeking new projects while quietly working away on some of his own. He is passionate about physical and devised theatre as well as exploring and adapting traditional forms.
As well as his project developments Scott also works as a movement lecturer at Federation University and is thrilled to be inspiring the next generation back where his professional journey began.
Scott's most recent work was in March this year where he adapted, production managed, movement directed and appeared in That's Classic's Two Gents, a Commedia dell'Arte adaptation of Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona presented in Melbourne and Bendigo as part of the VCAA Playlist.
He was also cast in La Mama's production of Chekhov's Three Sisters directed by Laurence Strangio, however Melbourne entered a snap lockdown in the week before opening so it lives only as a recording.
Scott has also established his own company, Sheoak Productions to produce his own work in collaboration with a variety of colleagues nationally and internationally.
