About Beth´s wedding

New Idea Magazine: Editor's say:

Alas I’m no longer at that stage in life where my friends and I are getting married – and I’m in no hurry to be amidst wedding fever with my daughters.

But if I was, I would certainly be taking a few hints from Beth Allen’s wedding. This talented lady wrapped up all the formalities into a service that was wonderfully casual without forsaking the significance of the day. Beth is certainly the first bride I’ve known to have a doughnut truck in the drive for dessert.

I caught up with her days before the service when she was calm, happy and excited. She was a little teary, but they were happy tears.

Posted on December 15, 2010 at 1:26 PM Comments comments (0)

You get to see Beth Allen in a small scene too, but first there's some insideinformation on how "Toys" was written. Natalie Medlock and Dan Musgrove share their secrets.

Produced by Beth Allen and Charlie McDermott.


Shortland Street's Beth Allen is gracing the stage for Toys, a special adults-only Christmas play at Auckland's Basement Theatre.  Beth, who plays Shortland Street's bad girl  Brooke Freeman, stars alongside Shorty castmates Angela Bloomfield and Ari Boyland (The Tribe's KC/Shorty's Brodie Kemp)  in the play about Children's toys.

"Toys is a naughty Christmas comedy, where several toys (like Viewmaster, Barbie and Ball) gather together to discuss what happened to their owner," says Beth,who thinks this play mignt provide the well-needed laughs over the busy holiday period. "I love making people laugh, [especially] at a time of the year when we're all tired."

No 1 Family Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand, celebrated 30 years on December 7th

/Not sure why they celebrated 30 years, if the vineyard itself was set up in 1997, but oh well, the pic still look great)

The New Zealand vineyard was set up in July 1997 by champagne maker Daniel Le Brun, his wife Adele and their children Virginie and Remy. Their first wine, Cuvee No.1, was released in 1999. Virginie Le Brun and Beth Allen were working on Shortland Street together for a while.

Another lengthy and very descriptive review about Toys.

Beth Allen as Barbie’s sidekick Share A Smile Becky was all-American exuberance and optimism and Allen and Bloomfield are a powerful comic duo with great timing, pace and playfulness.

"Toys is a naughty Christmas comedy, where several toys (like Viewmaster, Barbie and Ball) gather together to discuss what happened to their owner, Charlie," says Allen, who is not only acting in, but also co-producing the show.

Being practical

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 7:17 AM Comments comments (0)

Beth visited the inaugural Scriptwriters Awards on November 10th 2010, see photo and also helped her best friend (and former The Tribe co-star) Antonia Prebble buy a house.

With the help of supportive friends, and plenty of phone calls to her Wellington-based parents for advice, Antonia started the search for her dream home. “There were a lot of people around to support me, but ultimately all the responsibility lay with me, so it was pretty scary,”she says, adding that the very first auction she went to was a minordisaster. “I was so nervous – it went past my top bid in about three seconds! I got it so wrong,” she laughs.While she went to see most open homes on her own, Antonia did enlist the services of friend and fellow actor Beth Allen, who plays Brooke Freeman on Shortland Street, to help her in the quest.

“Beth bought a house a few years ago and is really practical, so I’d walk in and check out the vibe. If I liked it I’d get her to come back with me and she’d say, ‘There’s no storage’, and so on. If I got herseal of approval, I’d feel better about it. I would get carried away with the colours otherwise!”


Brooke Freeman update

I have re-organized the Brooke Freeman page into a more organized file, added some tables of contents etc. This should make it easier to follow everything about the Shortland Street's prettiest GP.

Safer Roads

Posted on October 26, 2010 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

The campaign is sending out a clear message: drink less before driving!

The 'Two Drinks Max' campaign is aimed at convincing the Government to lower New Zealand's drink driving limit from 80mg to 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

That would allow one to two standard drinks before driving.

Politicians in support include Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown, Auckland Mayor Len Brown and Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker.

Prominent New Zealanders including Middlemore Hospital emergency department head Vanessa Thornton, mountaineer Mark Inglis, actress Beth Allen and model Kylie Bax have also signed up.

Yes, yes, I'm still talking about Beth Allen and her fiancee and their inspiring dreams which they continue to turn into reality.

"Our vision is to create high quality visceral works both nationally and internationally,"  Charlie McDermott says.

The pair opt for plays that have an edge to them and have been described by friends as the new power couple of theatre.

"All we are is people who have a lot of energy for it," Ms Allen says.
