Actor • MC • Singer • Performer

G’day and welcome to my official website. I am an Australian performer born and raised in Hobart, Tasmania. From Stage and screen, to radio and corporate speaking, singing and charity work, there isn’t much I can’t do for you. Enjoy exploring my many hats and please get in contact if there is something I, or my talented friends could do for you.



John has enjoyed an extensive career in corporate entertainment, stage, radio and television in his home state of Tasmania for over 30 years for a variety of companies and organisations. On the mainland stage, John has most recently played COWARDLY LION in the Australian touring production of WIZARD OF OZ and has previously appeared as Stewpot in Opera Australia’s South Pacific, Dick Woollnough/Dee Anthony in The Boy From OZ for The Production Co., Mitch in The Threepenny Opera for Malthouse and STC, Spider/Lord Savage in Jeckyll & Hyde for TML in Korea, Mr. Braithwaite in BILLY ELLIOT The Musical for Universal/Working Title, and Pumbaa in The Lion King for Disney Theatrical Productions in Perth, Melbourne and Shanghai… more

John X Presents is a production company where I co-produce large scale shows, musicals and events (and more recently casting on TV) with my wife Cassie and my good friend Ben Armitage. We are currently working on THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW which will be the first Tasmanian fully professional commercial musical in the modern era.

Past productions include WE WILL ROCK YOU, ROCK OF AGES, and NEXT TO NORMAL…. more
