Lucy Clough has been pursuing a career in musical theatre since 2008. She was the first 17 year old to be accepted into the prestigious Queensland Conservatorium Musical Theatre course and was the first student to receive the newly named Bachelor of Musical Theatre (BMT). 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”.
Mentors at university include Dr. Jessica O’Bryan, Megan Shorey, Kate Wilson, Melissa Agnew, Helena Moore and Paul Sabey. While studying, Lucy was a soloist at the QPAC American Music Club, the annual QCGU City Hall Recital and the Queensland Tourism Awards. Outside of campus, further credits have included originating the role of Belijtgen in Matthew Samer’s “Hell and High Water” and most recently Go to Hell Kitty in “CHICAGO”.
Lucy has also attended master classes with Larry Moss, Elizabeth Kemp, Neil Rutherford, Leontine Hass, John Bucchino and Matthew Robinson, all of which have indisputably inspired her to practice her craft on a daily basis.
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 Grade 5 in Music Theory. In turn, she regularly conducts musical theatre and mock audition workshops for aspiring performers, teaching music/drama classes as well as private singing and piano lessons.
