Gregg Pettigrew has been performing since a very early age and has been on the professional stage and screen for over 30 years. Although armed with the technical performance skill gained through his overseas training, it is his experience and versatility that make him the talent that he is. Gregg has performed lead roles in some of the largest musicals around the world, ranging from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber to the more technical Jacques Brel. Dramatic roles and productions remain his first love and these have seen him lift numerous performance awards in Australia and New Zealand, but this said he remains true to his roots and treats the industry with the respect it deserves. Gregg firmly believes that performance is there to enrich other's lives and to pass social commentary in a unique way. This makes him stand out, be it on stage or screen as each performance he gives is delivered with a uniqueness and honesty befitting of the true artist that he is.
Frans Swart, Managing Director of Lefra Productions, is excited to include the production as one of the Lefra Cellar Concerts. "Us theatre makers had to start thinking outside the box quickly and we were very surprised by the response we received at our Cellar Concerts. It is presented online every Sunday at 17:00 online for the whole family and it is so great for me that families come together and make something great of the concert. Remember our Cellar Concerts are concerts as you would see them in a theatre. I believe our interactive approach that audiences can communicate with us directly also contributes to the success of the Lefra Cellar Concerts, "says Swart.
