Thomas Currie is a performer, producer and teacher. Most recently, he performed in and produced ‘The Curtain Rises’, a cabaret which raised money to implement anti-bullying programs in primary and secondary schools Australia-wide. The show received outstanding audience reactions after two entirely sold out seasons. Thomas has also appeared on Joy 94.9 and 3AW, Melbourne’s most listened to radio station.
Thomas Currie developed a love of the performing arts at a young age, taking up acting class at five years old and later learning the piano, bassoon and singing. At age 16, Thomas started his own business, Capital Magic and Theatre Supplies (CMTS) to supply theatrical products to the entertainment industry. After attending a study tour with a limited amount of acting students to New York in 2016, Thomas was certain that becoming a performer was the career for him. During his final year of secondary school at Ivanhoe Grammar, Thomas successfully auditioned for Australia’s most prestigious creative arts school, The Queensland Conservatorium and is currently undertaking study.
Thomas has immense passion for teaching and mentoring students and has acted as a vocal coach and artist in residence for primary and high schools. In 2017, Thomas reunited with the primary school he loves and attended, Templestowe Park Primary School. It was here that he made the initiative to run programs with the Grade 6 classes to negotiate the transition from primary to secondary school to settle student’s concerns. Through the workshops, Thomas identified that bullying was a paramount issue so he teamed up with the charity, Bully Zero to make a difference for many kids and teens around the country.
Thomas currently coaches students in Brisbane and Melbourne.
