As we eagerly anticipate the return of live theatre, we’re also excited to witness the next generation of talent. While we wait for the curtains to rise again, we wanted to take a look at 10 rising stars who we can’t wait to see back onstage.

Luisa Scrofani
After star turns in “Violet” and “In the Heights,” she recently dazzled in the workshop production of “My Brilliant Career,” which is hopefully heading to a stage soon. 

Georgina Hopson
This Rob Guest Endowment winner blew audiences away as Mother in last year’s “Ragtime,” and is set to let her soaring soprano rip when she stars as Lily in Opera Australia’s “The Secret Garden.”

Courtney Monsma
Talk about regal! This year Courtney dazzled a queen in the smash-hit musical “SIX” (Spoiler alert: she was beheaded) and will delight as Princess Anna in the long-awaited Oz premiere of Disney’s Broadway sensation “Frozen” later this year. What next?!

Daniel Monks
This electrifying young actor delivered acclaimed performances in “The Elephant Man” and “Lord of the Flies,” and then made his mark in London in “Teenage Dick” and “The Seagull” opposite Emilia Clarke. We can’t wait to see what he does next. 

Rahel Romahn
A great clown with a dark edge, Romahn moved from a brilliant TV career to a series of stunning turns on Australian stages, stealing scenes in “Cosi,” “The Harp in the South,” and “Lord of the Flies.”

Andrew Coshan
This talented Kiwi has set the stage alight in “A View From the Bridge” and was set to star in Hayes Theatre’s “Merrily We Roll Along.”

James Smith
One of South Australia’s most prolific young stage actors James recently stolen the show in “Jasper Jones,” “Limit,” and “Volpone” for State Theatre Company South Australia. 

Elenoa Rokobaro
Winner of the Sydney Theatre Award for Best Actress in a Musical in 2020 for the title role in “Caroline, or Change,” Rokobaro is one of Australia’s top leading ladies.

Ryan Gonzalez
Gonzalez has wowed audiences for years in shows like “Jersey Boys” and “In the Heights,” and we can’t wait to see him onstage again soon.

Chika Ikogwe
She just finished her training at NIDA and is already one of Australia’s most in-demand actors. We loved her in “The Wolves” and “Fangirls” at Belvoir, and she broke our hearts in “Dance Nation.”
