Trevor Ashley: The (first annual) Farewell Show
Trevor Ashley is one of Australia’s most sought-after and successful performers. He has built a career and following as an actor, writer, director and international queen of cabaret - but not necessarily in that order. He recently was the fan favourite and runner up in Queen Of The Universe, the global drag singing competition hosted by Graham Norton, streaming worldwide.
An Australian musical theatre icon, Trevor starred as Thenardier in Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Miserables for which he was nominated for his third Helpmann Award. He has also appeared as Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar, the original Australian Edna Turnblad in Hairspray and created the role of Miss Understanding in Priscilla Queen Of the Desert: The Musical and has just completed a sellout run of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat as Pharaoh.
In cabaret, Ashley has previously starred in Liza (on and E), and Liza’s Back! (is broken), both of which toured the world. Other shows include Moulin Scrooge!, Diva Degustation and I’m Every Woman, for which he won the Sydney Theatre Award. He recently completed a national symphony tour of Diamonds Are For Trevor, a tribute to Shirley Bassey which was also recorded as a TV special for Foxtel Arts.
He has played some of the world’s great venues from the Sydney Opera House to New York’s Sony Hall, and an extended run of Liza in the West End. In film and television, he can be seen as a regular on RFDS, plus in the acclaimed films Seriously Red and Holding the Man.
