You can’t find a more tirelessly dedicated and breaking-the-mold performer than Lucy Clough, who has been pursuing a career in musical theatre since 2008. During her whirlwind, bright-eyed time at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music (QCM), she has performed lead/featured roles of the Witch in “Into the Woods”; Julie Jordan in “Carousel”; Dionne in “Hair”; Sarah/Bella in “The Wishing Well” and Jane in “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”.
While studying, Lucy was a soloist at the QPAC American Music Club and the annuel QCGU City Hall Recital. Outside of campus, further credits have included originating the role of Belijtgen in “Hell and High Water” and the Cashier in the web series “Strange Aeons”.
Lucy has also attended master classes with Neil Rutherford, Leontine Hass, John Bucchino, Matthew Robinson and Paul Sabey, all of which have indisputably inspired her to practice on a daily basis this maxim: ‘Dare to be different.’ But none has dared and pushed her skills more than her mentor Dr. Jessica O’Bryan, whom Lucy has been consistently attending vocal lessons for, in addition to dance classes and workshops.
In turn, she regularly conducts musical theatre workshops for aspiring performers, teaching music/drama classes as well as private singing and piano lessons. This allows Lucy to sharpen her skills, not unlike that of an arrowhead’s. She has landed other targets too: an accomplished pianist, she has completed AMEB and ANZCA exams and was awarded honours. At 17 years of age, she reached a CMus in contemporary piano performance.
And what of her future? This budding composer is in the process of recording her own album as well as writing the upcoming musical “Georgia”. One day, she may have a crack at the lucrative West End Scene, thanks to spending time in the UK as a little girl. Either way, this busy bee is definitely buzzing from flower to flower!
