Double Bachelor WAAPA graduate Amy Fortnum began her training in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music, specialising in Classical Voice. Integrating this experience with fifteen years of tuition at Jody Marshall Dance Company, local amateur theatre productions and corporate performances, she was then accepted into WAAPA’s Music Theatre Bachelor degree. Amy’s WAAPA highlights include starring as leading lady Julie Jordan in their 2018 production of Carousel at the Regal Theatre and as supporting female Camila Rosario in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musicalIn The Heights. She made her professional debut in the world premiere of Mimma: A Musical of War and Friendship as Giana/Ensemble at the Regal Theatre in April 2019. She also won the 2019 WA Fringe World Cabaret Award for her self-devised cabaret 'Golden Age Girls’ which previously won the prestigious Julie Michael Cabaret Award. Amy has been described as “possessing a powerful, emotional voice” - a credit to her seven years of intensive study in music. Amy recently returned from an Australian tour with Perform Education in BIG DREAMS! - an original children’s musical designed to highlight issues around mental health and anxiety in schools.
