Simone Zammit



Simone Zammit started taking part in drama from the young age of five and represented her school on Rediffusion in productions that were made at that time for schools.

While she was still a student, she was also part of her school’s choir, and this gave her the opportunity to take part in a main part in the Mini Musical that was held at the Manoel Theatre at that time. All this enticed her to apply to enrol in the drama school that was about to open for the first time under the patronage of the Manoel Theatre.

Since then, she has never looked back. She took part in three Maltese productions that were staged in various theatres and schools in London. She attended several courses in voice, musical theatre and even mime, which were taught from foreign teachers. All this was a spur for her to take part in Operas such as ‘Manon Lescaut’, ‘Norma’, ‘Werther’, operettas such as: ‘Lejl ġo Venezja, ‘Fledermaus’ and ‘Principessa della Czarda’ and musicals such as ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’, ‘The King and I’ and ‘L-Opera ta’ Sitt Ħabbiet’.

She also took part in Maltese and English comedies such as ‘Karmena Abdilla’, ‘Can’t pay won’t pay’ and ‘L-Infern ma jistax jistenna’, as well as in Greek theatre such as ‘Medea’, ‘Women of Trachis’ and many more productions which are impossible to mention all.

She also took part in radio dramas and on television with series such as ‘Anġli’, ‘Giselle’ and ‘Zafira’. She had an opportunity to take part in a local film of the ‘Santa Monica’ series. The last production she took part in was, both in the play and in the film: ‘Castillo’ which has just finished shooting. She is currently preparing for a play called ‘Lupu/Nagħġa.
