Hugh’s quite the character

TALENT: Hugh Parker

Hugh Parker’s certainly not one to be type cast. In fact, in recent times the versatile actor’s been in high demand for a wide range of roles.

He’s currently rehearsing with Opera Queensland for a production of The Merry Widow. It’s a straight acting role, however, he does get to sing a song in Act Three.

Meanwhile, you may have heard him as the voice the Brisbane Racing Carnival.

In between gigs Hugh got down and dirty in an audition to play a Tiger Moth (below) and a cockroach named Geoff (above) in a future animated series.

Later in the year, Hugh will be working on “Lysa and the Freeborn Dames” for La Boite Theatre and a role in ABC’s Rosehaven. He’s a busy boy.
