KEVIN HOPKINS has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years as an actor, director and morerecently as a teacher of acting. He has performed in all states of Australia and internationally, and has been an ensemble member of the Australian Shakespeare company for over 25 years. He has appeared in over 60 productions, predominantly in Shakespeare. Most recently he was seen as Don John in this summer’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ in the Botanical Gardens, Melbourne.
Kevin has known Nathan Curnow for over 20 years, as they were once neighbors in Footscray. He has acted in and co-produced Nathan's ‘Dizney on Dry Ice’ some 15 years ago, and has been keen on being involved in ‘Mystery in a Blimp’ for at least that long. This production also sees Helen Hopkins and Brian Davison, (who both appeared in Dizney on Dry Ice) reunited on stage for another absurd Curnow play.
Kevin also currently works each year for the Prague Shakespeare Company, and is soon to co-direct Titus Andronicus in Prague in June this year.
