WELCOME to the official website for Adelaide-based voice & dialect coach, actor and director, Nick Curnow! For detailed biography and information about who I am, what I do and how to get in touch with me follow the links above.
I have an Master of Fine Arts in Voice from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), currently ranked in the top 10 training institutions in the world and the only institution outside of the USA and UK in that list. I also have a Graduate Diploma from the University of New England (UNE) majoring in Linguistics (Phonetics and Phonology) and Theatre Studies (Acting and Directing). I received my BA (Performance), with Distinction from the University of Western Sydney (now Western Sydney University).
I am currently the Lecturer in Voice for the Bachelor of Music Theatre program at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide. The Elder Conservatorium is the oldest Conservatorium in Australia, and the music theatre course was begun in 2019.
I have performed on stages from the Sydney Opera House to Belvoir St, from the Old Fitzroy to the New Theatre. I have lent my expertise to feature films (such as Outback and Rip Tide), prime time television and to both mainstage and independent theatres such as Opera Australia, Company B Belvoir, Ensemble Theatre, Old Fitzroy, New Theatre, Darlinghurst Theatre Company, and Playmakers Repertory Theatre in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
