Eleni Cassimatis as Osric plays well with Hamlets taunts in an enjoyable exchange setting up the finale of the play. As the Player Queen she amuses the royal court before Hamlets plot to expose Claudius is revealed and as the Second Gravedigger she adds some solemn reflection on the morality of suicide.

In the normally male role of Osric is Eleni Cassimatis who facilitates the climactic duel and almost presents as a party plan hostess.
- Ron Lee, Sydney Chic
Eleni Cassimatis brings a quiet empathy and tenderness in her supporting roles as the Player Queen and Osric.
- Darcy Turnbull, Theatre People Melbourne
Tight casting brings Evans back to parallel his Ghost with the Player King in The Mousetrap, amusingly coupled with Eleni Cassimatis as a bumptious Player Queen.
- Alanna Maclean, The Canberra Times
Eleni Cassimatis and Jane Mahady are also very strong in multiple roles.

"Stand out performances came from Zac Bush as Viola who played between charm and confusion very well and Eleni Cassimatis as Sir Toby, a swaggering, drunken meddler who seemed comfortable in all unflattering circumstances."
- Night Writes Sydney
"Eleni Cassimatis as Sir Toby and Sarah Greenwood as the vainglorious Malvolio are particularly notable in these roles."
- Irina Dunn, City Hub

- Helen Hopcroft, Arts Hub
"Eleni Cassimatis’ Sir Toby who knows how to make drunken entrances very funny and cruelty very insidious"
- Reviews By Judith
