About the Wynnum Fringe Founder
Tom Oliver is an Australian actor, singer and creative producer from Wynnum in Brisbane with a broad portfolio that includes music, theatre, film, television and cabaret. He’s played lead roles in every Australian state, New Zealand, Singapore, Dubai, Hong Kong and on international waters around the USA, Mexico and West Indies. Tom is mostly known for playing the main character in the global disco phenomenon VELVET opposite Marcia Hines and originating the role of Johnny in David Berthold’s acclaimed production Rolling Thunder Vietnam under the musical direction of Chong Lim.
“I was supposed to be over in Germany doing a theatre show right now. I was then planning a move to London. This pandemic has thrown me back to my hometown and the world is telling me that I now need to play a part in rebuilding the arts sector at home,” Tom said.
“I want Wynnum Fringe to be a place where we can praise the creative thinkers and experience their variety of works. The fringe is where people go to find the exciting new things that eventually creep into the mainstream. To create a space where this can happen – especially in this current climate – is truly exhilarating,” he added.
There are so many awesome shows on at Wynnum Fringe and some are even FREE. See the Full Event Program on their website here.
