Nicholas Eaton's work:
After graduating from Ballarat and Clarendon College in 2005, Nicholas went on to study Performing Arts at Brent St Studios, in Sydney. The opportunity to study and learn from Australias best helped Nicholas gain confidence and fine tune his ability which ultimately led to him being cast in the World Tour of 'Cats - The Musical' before the end of the course. Since his debut Nicholas has performed in The Boyfriend, Singin' in the Rain and Nice Work If You Can Get It by the Production Company, Mary Poppins, South Pacific (UK), WarHorse, The Rocky Horror Show, Ghost - The Musical, Ultimate Broadway - Shanghai, Twisted Broadway and is currently touring Australia performing in Disney's Aladdin - The Musical as Dance Captain/Fight Captain/ Swing. Receiving the grant enabled Nicholas to seek the tutelage of respected dance and singing teachers with which he was able to further his training. Furthermore being a part of the thriving arts scene in Ballarat gave Nicholas the drive and determination to strive for a career in the Performing Arts.
