Rae Smith

Rae’s love affair with theatre began in 1991 with the first ever Launceston College theatre production ‘Beach Blanket Tempest’ where she played a singing, surfboarding genie! The years that followed saw her in both lead and ensemble roles both here in Tasmania and interstate, in productions of ‘My Fair Lady’, ‘South Pacific’, ‘Les Miserables’, ‘Hello Dolly’, ‘The Laramie Project’ and ‘Spamalot’. Last year Rae was thrilled to secure the lead role of Mrs Johnstone in Encore Theatre Company’s memorable production of ‘Blood Brothers’, and in March 2018 Rae was honoured by the Tasmanian Theatre Council with the award for ‘Best Leading Female in Community Musical Theatre’. Rae feels like one of the lucky few who has been able to successfully balance life as a sole parent to two young children, a twelve year career as a Real Estate Sales Representative, along with a continued involvement and deep love of performing arts.

Bindy Stephens

Bindy is a trained actor who adores teaching the craft of acting in an atmosphere of fun and purpose. Bindy is a qualified Dance and Drama Teacher, Realise 2 Strength Profiler and Remedial Masseur who is passionate about the performing arts, health, healing and empowerment. Bindy believes that the arts can heal individuals and communities and can be an agent for personal growth. This belief led to the development of her business ‘Happy Habits’ designed to support individuals, schools and organisations with their wellbeing needs, uniquely using the performing arts as a vehicle for learning.

On the weekends Bindy teaches acting to 6-16yr olds at ‘Studio Space’ and adores treading the boards herself, regularly performing in a range of theatre and musical productions around Launceston.


If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.


SOME RULES we’d like to point out.

1) Tickets are $25 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only, so please only select that ticket type if you are a paying League Member – League membership is $15 per month, and gives you access to free Meet Ups in addition to loads of members only content on the members portal. If you’re not a member yet then you can join via the link below, or just purchase a ticket.

2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and then decide last minute that they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it - we want to meet you!

3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and use the word “connecting” instead. It's because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space.
