About Christine

Christine made her first professional stage appearance on the day of her 18th birthday in the role of Sleeping Beauty for Storybook Theatre Company. A few years later, she made her professional musical theatre debut in the 1999 – 2001 Australian production of The Sound of Music starring Lisa McCune & John Waters. Under the direction of Broadway Director & Tony Award nominee Susan H. Schulmann, Christine also performed the role of Liesl Von Trapp and toured nationally with the production.

 

Christine's other musical theatre credits include Anything Goes (The Debutante), for The Production Company, The Wizard of Oz (Ensemble/Dorothy understudy), for GFO/SEL and Morning Melodies at the Victorian Arts Centre and Adelaide Festival Centre. Her television appearances include Good Morning Australia, Carols in the Domain and Full Frontal.

 

In 2005, Christine relocated to South Korea to perform with LATT Children's Theatre, a multi-lingual repertory theatre company producing world-class Korean and English musical productions, based in Gangnam, Seoul.

In 2016 Christine wrote and produced her one-woman show, Places I Have Been, which premiered to a sold out audience at the Kew Court House in Melbourne. 

Christine has completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts from Australian Catholic University (Music) and is currently studying a Master of Arts in Writing and Literature at Deakin University.

 

Christine's memoir about her time spent living and performing in Seoul, South Korea, will be published by Affirm Press in 2025.
