Nicola first appeared on stage at the age of 4 as a mouse in her ballet school’s Christmas concert, and has since performed in over 20 productions across Auckland (although her ballet career didn’t last very long).
Music & singing have always been a huge part of Nicola’s life, and she credits her parents wildly differing tastes in music (classical for mum, classic rock for dad) as the basis for her love of many different music styles—she’ll listen to anything, as long as she can sing along!
Nicola was a reasonably shy child and although she took drama classes from a young age, she didn’t sing in front of anyone until her Mum saw an ad in the paper for a local youth theatre company and took her along to the audition day when she was 10. From there, Nicola's love of musical theatre was born. She enrolled in the youth theatre company, started musical theatre classes, and has since appeared in countless productions and musical reviews.
