White Whale's Board of Directors

David Mence, 26, Company Director (Artistic Director)

David divides his life between various rehearsal rooms and an inky little cave beneath one of the desks in the State Library's domed reading-room. He has worked as an assistant director on Othello for Bell Shakespeare and Blackbird for Melbourne Theatre Company and his zombie-schlock sequel Macbeth Re-Arisen has been performed in Melbourne and Edinburgh to critical acclaim.

Kelly Farrow, 27, Company Director (Managing Director)

Kelly is a powerhouse organiser, a midnight-oil burner and a bike-riding blonde who leads a double life: international award-winning theatre producer by night and Victoria Legal Aid lawyer by day. As founding director of White Whale, she produces, publicises and oversees every show that passes through the Whale's great maw.

Brooke Antulov, 24, Company Director (Production Manager)

A passionate actor and long-term member of our ensemble, Brooke has discovered a whole new set of skills since becoming the Whale's Production Manager in 2007. She's as formidable a talent behind the scenes as she is under the spotlight — a scheduling mastermind behind a pretty smile, an iron fist within a velvet glove, a force to be reckoned with.

Jules Malseed-Harris, 27, Company Director (Financial Manager)

This ultra-capable action man has it all covered — hedge fund analyst, water polo champion, culture vulture and all round nice guy. Economics guru Jules makes sure the Whale's finances stay as good-looking as its Directors. He is also an Executive Director of the Debater's Association of Victoria, Treasurer of the Melbourne University Water Polo Club.

Adelle Lin, 26, Company Director (Marketing Manager)

She's a stylish and passionate urbanite who splits her time between the Paris end of Collins Street and the most hip music and theatre scenes in the inner city. Former stock market analyst and now strategy consultant, Adelle knows how to get things done and get the most out of life. Who said Masters in Accounting means you have to be boring?
