Liz Landsman

Liz Landsman first performed on stage during her student days at St Andrews where she discovered a love of the Savoy operas. Three years with the Angus G&S Society followed, after which she moved to Edinburgh, where she played many mezzo roles with Edinburgh G&S, including the title role in Iolanthe, Lady Angela in Patience, Tessa in The Gondoliers, Psyche in Princess Ida and Mad Margaret in Ruddygore.

Her first role with DGASS was as the Duchess of Plaza-Toro in The Gondoliers in 2016, since when she has played several alto principal parts. In 2023 Liz was delighted to be back in the Carnegie Hall as Ruth in The Pirates of Penzance, and also joined the cast of Threepenny Theatricals as the eccentric Rose Flood Porter in The Lady Vanishes.

At weekends Liz can be found participating in dog agility and Hoopers shows with her border collies Rue and Alta, or standing for hours on CalMac ferries as a Marine Mammal Surveyor for the charity, Orca.
