John Bowles

JOHN BOWLES is one of Australia's most versatile performers - at ease in a major musical, on television or in cabaret.

Growing up on Australian television as a member of Young Talent Time, John spent five years travelling the country with the team. During this time he recorded solo and group records, and clocked up an amazing 250 hours of live variety television.

He has starred in many pantomimes and TV dramas, and a host of other local programs and telethons around the country.

John has toured the club circuit with his own cabaret, and appeared in the Tribute to Peter Allen, the Premier's Concert, the Mo Awards Presentation, and various voice-overs/jingles and commercials. John received a Mo Award in 1989, for best new talent, for his performance in Let The Good Times Roll at the Burning Log Cabaret Restaurant in Sydney. So successful were the shows that he played six consecutive seasons. He has also received two Green Room Award nominations.

1993 saw John produce his first solo CD album, Hooked On A Feeling. In August 2000, he released his second solo album, Tribute, which includes some of his own songs.

John played the romantic lead character Raoul for 1000 performances of The Phantom of the Opera. He also completed the Australian tour of Hello, Dolly!, starring as Ambrose Kemper. Prior to that, he appeared as the narrator Munkustrap in Cats, touring through Asia and Australia. In 1999 John toured Australia and New Zealand as Hero, in Simon Gallaher's production of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.

John likes to act as a freelance presenter for radio and TV.

He produced and performed in the 1999 production of Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens and toured country Victoria in 2000/2001 in the Peter Allen Tribute Show.

John's Young Talent Time documentary recently screened on Channel 10 and was the highest rating program of the day.

Reprising his starring role from The Phantom of the Opera, John participated in the first ever commercial Musical Theatre performance in China for Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. This production of The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber was performed in The Great Hall of The People, in October 2001.

John also won the 2001 Mo Award for Male Vocal Variety Performer.
