RUCKUS history according to Mr James Penny





This is my brief history of RUCKUS and my life in drama
I am James Penny
This is the whole entire history of RUCKUS ensemble team

I am in RUCKUS is all about fun lots of noise make entertaining for RUCKUS
So I’ll take you way way back from where RUCKUS started.

In 2011 all the days had past we had fun. Some people that I know in RUCKUS is Chris Bunton I meet Chris he is my friend for looking after me. Gerard is so funny but I love him all the best. Digby he is the best, Rachel I love Rachel in my heart and Audrey always the best in my heart as well.


I meet RUCKUS for long time so Alison was the most best drama teacher in 2011.
Last time that Bill who was our support was in RUCKUS in 2011, 2012 & 2013 because he keep texting me his slapstick but sadly he is left RUCKUS in 2013.

All the highlights from RUCKUS is doing rehearsal & performance of Love Heart Cardigan in 2011 and all RUCKUS had good time.

Back in 2012, 2013 and 2014 we went to the bushes at the park or in Jubilee Hall at Parramatta. We meet funny guy Craig Anderson who make us in a slapstick mood.


Dean we meet Dean the first time in 2012 and 2013. I had very funny way is Dean, Bill, Alison and all RUCKUS do Home Alone gag reel in Jubilee Hall. I was involved they are so very very funny and good slapstick comedy guys.


In that day in 2013 we performed in See In Me. My favourite was Hey Hey it’s James Penny Show and I love every performance what Gerard did, Chris did, Digby did, Nathan did, Rachel did and Audrey did.

In that day in 2014 sadly Nathan is left RUCKUS.
We are so sad that Bill, Nathan and Joe Rix left.
Jo Rix was RUCKUS with us but Joe Rix left.

In 2011 we got Jake Willis as a support which is I know him in my primary school in 3 years but Jake he was a RUCKUS with us and we happy with him.

So good news we reach up to the end of 2011, 2012 & 2013.

Also on behalf in my life in drama thank you so much for looking after me and my advice is I am going to stay to be part of the group of RUCKUS.

So let’s continue

We all sad that we leave Riverside Theatres in Parramatta because Alison finish her job is okay RUCKUS can look after Alison. The few days in Riverside we always do rehearsal and performance but in 2014 and 2013 2015 Suzy Dunne came to RUCKUS same as Clay Starr return as support people to RUCKUS we all very happy.


Now I’ve been recording a video to RUCKUS that all the video all the years in drama with Bill, Dean, Alison, Suzy, Clay plus Craig Anderson.

All the videos that I been recording in my iPad is in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015.
I have to say to Craig Anderson that he is good director in Just a Bit… Funny project. I love mine is Busking, Not Waiting and Mr Bean with my friend Scott and Hey Hey it’s James Penny Show which is the James Penny School of Slapstick and in black and white silent film A Day in the Park.

So final day that we finish at Jubilee Hall and Riverside Theatre.
Is time to move on to Erskineville and we at PACT centre for emerging artists.
So that’s it in Erskineville, we all meet in cafe have drinks or eat then we go to Erskineville Town Hall and PACT too.

So yep

We also go to the country in Orange for Speed of Life is get some kids do some like acting and do what is Alison or Dean say and we teach the kids as well and we been to Inverell in the country for our big performance as we did with kids and people with disabilities as well.


My last point is when we were in Orange when we went away. I was in the shower I was singing my heart go Sha la la la Sha la la la in the Sunshine and in Inverell Gerard was singing Wash your face with Orange Juice in the shower when Digby say my heart Go deeper deeper deeper deeper and Gerard say SHUT UP!
