Christie Whelan Browne
Christie Whelan Browne is one of Australia’s leading musical theatre performers. An award-winning actress who has delighted audiences in shows as varied as The Importance Of Being Earnest and Britney Spears: The Cabaret, Whelan has been described by The Australian as “immaculate and untouchable”; by The Age as “magnificent”; and by the Herald Sun as “a musical and cabaret talent not to be missed”.
In addition to her traditional theatrical roles, Christie is also the star of Bryant and Franks’ Britney Spears: The Cabaret – a touching and hilarious satirical one-woman show about the singer’s life. The Herald Sun declared the show a “masterpiece”. The show did a national tour in 2012 to great acclaim.
In 2013 Christie shared the stage as co-host of The Helpmann Awards at The Sydney Opera House with Eddie Perfect, as well as singing the national anthem and “Together We Are One” at the 2012 Melbourne Cup. Christie has also performed at Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight for four years.
