Sancia Robinson

Besides being one of Melbourne’s most sought-after teachers, Sancia sports many different hats: being a trained NIDA actor and teacher, a TV and radio producer, casting producer, director and published author.  

Her producing and casting work includes the Logie Award winning documentary series ‘Filthy Rich and Homeless’, comedian Luke McGregor’s comedy drama ‘Luke Warm Sex’, SBS comedy ‘Santo, Sam and Ed’s Cup Fever’, ‘Spicks and Specks’, ‘Thank God You’re Here’ (just to squeeze in a few); this year she has cast shows for Blackfella Films, Matchbox Pictures and SBS Factual has been named “the first person you call when you’re building a TV show,” by ABC’s Head of Comedy. 

She has toured internationally with her most notable, one-woman show “What is the Matter with Mary Jane? ‘Five Stars out of five – kill to get a ticket’ which just completed another sell our five star season in Adelaide directed by Tony Knight, ex Head of Acting NIDA. Sancia has also just finished a run in the sell out season of The Crucible for the Australian Shakespeare Company. 

“Sancia is always the first person I ask to be my casting director. Her instincts in providing a great mix or people that work well together on a panel is second to none. Her passion in finding new talent as well as people from diverse backgrounds is vital. And her ability in keeping talent happy through long and often tedious days is essential.” – Anthony Watt, Executive Producer – ABC TV
