Caroline O'Connor (See also: Caroline's biography on Wikipedia) Caroline Ann O'Connor was born in Oldham, Lancashire England to Irish parents, and subsequently moved to Sydney, Australia. Caroline started singing almost before she could speak and at age 10 was crowned Australian Irish Dance Champion.
Her earliest stage experience included imitations of Ethel Merman that she performed for her dog, but soon Caroline set her sites on a more discerning audience and packed her bags to return to the UK to train at the prestigious Royal Ballet School in London. Caroline O'Connor Afterwards, Caroline came back to Oz and the Australian Opera Ballet. While in a production there she met Anthony Warlow (Australian musical theatre star) who told her she had too much personality for her ballet slippers and pointed her to the musicals.
It turned out to be inspired advice. As the graphical timeline and long list of major awards below illustrate, Caroline has enjoyed great acclaim for stepping into the shoes of the likes of Edith Piaf, Judy Garland and - to her dog's delight - Ethel Merman, as well as headline roles in many of the world's best-loved musicals.
