Jordan Prosser (Class 2006) performing in Peter Pan Goes Wrong and wins 1st place for a feature film

Posted 30 Jan, 2019

Jordan Prosser has just been awarded 1st place in the Shore Scripts’ Feature film awards and is currently performing in the "side splitting farce" - Peter Pan Goes Wrong that is touring Australia. You can still catch the show in Sydney and Perth.

Jordan Prosser has just been awarded 1st place in the Shore Scripts’ Feature film awards in what was a record breaking year in terms of the number of submissions and the overall quality of the work submitted according to the judges. He won for his feature film Hungry Man – the protagonist Leon Greene and his manipulative tapeworm have tasted every forbidden food on earth, but when Leon falls for the enigmatic hotelier Jennifer Feathers, the worm coaxes him into hunting down the one delicacy they have yet to sample: human flesh.

Jordan told Reegood he wanted to be a superhero, or maybe a cop, when he was in kindergarten. He said he remembered thinking it would be really cool to stop bank robberies, to save the day. But then, as he got a bit older, he realised what he really wanted was to pretend to do that, and decided to be an actor. But then he got bit older again and realised that he didn’t want to just be in stories, he wanted to be telling those stories.

Reegood asked him when he wanted to be in the industry and he said that that was a funny question, because at first you don’t think you realise that it is an industry, per se. And then you go see Titanic and someone tells you it cost 200 million dollars to make. Two hundred million dollars! And sooner or later it dawns on you that what you want to do with your life is hideously expensive.

But Jordan continues to perfrom, write and direct.  He is currently performing Peter Pan Goes Wrong. It takes the J. M. Barrie classic and turns it on its head, totally butchering the children’s story we all know and love with hilarious results according to reviews. “A SIDE-SPLITTING FARCE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY” HERALD SUN.  Peter Pan Goes Wrong is touring Australia from December 2018 to March 2019.

Jordon told us that there were so many amazing people who looked after him, guided him, taught him, and showed him enormous kindness and humanity during his time at Radford; Mr Huitker, Mr Akhurst and Mr Mordike, of course – Dr Burns, Mr Lucas, Mr Craddock, Ms Mackey, Mr Ellison, Ms Harvey, Ms Wales and Rev Blaskow – to name only a few.
