DAN MILNE
FOUNDING DIRECTOR

A graduate of Actors Centre Australia, Dan has over a decade of professional experience as an actor and performer of both stage and screen (including a five year dabble in radio).

He has also worked behind the scenes in all three mediums, namely within Unit Department for screen productions, and taking an active committee role in the community theatre scene of Western Sydney for a number of years.

 

Dan relocated to Mparntwe/Alice Springs in early 2019. Inspired by the unique landscape of Central Australia, and his favourite animal, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle, Dan founded On The Wing Theatre Co. with the intention of challenging the traditional theatre-going experience, and offering something truly unique for audiences.
