Originally hailing from Perth, Lucy graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts with a Bachelor of Arts (Music Theatre). A star of the stage, Lucy’s notable roles include Glinda the Good Witch in the original Australian cast of Wicked (GFO) and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde The Musical (GFO) for which she won both Sydney Theatre and Helpmann Awards as Best Actress in a Musical. Lucy’s other stage credits include the roles of Sybil Chase in Private Lives (Melbourne Theatre Company), Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street, Miss Dorothy in the Australian Premiere of Thoroughly Modern Millie, Lois Lane/Bianca in Kiss Me Kate and Laurey in Oklahoma!

(Dainty/Louise Withers) in which she understudied and performed the role of Sophie.
As a voice over artist, Lucy has created a number of audiobooks, most proudly an introduction to her family story, Dame Mary Durack’s Kings In Grass Castles and most amusingly the children’s book titled Lucy The Good.
Performing regularly in concert throughout Australia, some highlights have been singing the British and Australian National Anthems for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke Of Edinburgh for the state reception at Perth’s Governor’s Gardens, singing the Australian National Anthem at the AFL Grand Final, the State of Origin and the Melbourne Cup, regular appearances on Channel 9’s Carols By Candlelight and Channel 7’s Carols in The Domain, performing with the Perth and Queensland Symphony Orchestras and in the concert series Disney Under The Stars (Live Nation) and Witches with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra last year.
Lucy’s radio show My Soundtrack (which is available to be podcast on the ABC website) has been the ABC’s most downloaded radio show three summers running and will be back for a fourth season this year. Lucy’s debut album Lucy Durack is available on iTunes and in ABC stores around the country, on which she also debuts as a songwriter.
