Andy Manning

Miner/Policeman- Ensemble

Originally from Christchurch, Andy is in high demand as an actor, singer, musical director, composer and pianist. He graduated from NASDA in 2013 and has subsequently been based in Auckland. He was most recently Associate Musical Director for the Auckland Theatre Company
and Court Theatre seasons of That Bloody Woman, following its world premiere at the Christchurch Arts Festival in 2015. He was the Musical Director for Rock Of Ages, for Christchurch’s Magnitude Productions, and for Twisted and Hungover at Basement Theatre. A composer in his own right, his musical The Magic Cookbook received a rehearsed reading at the Court Theatre earlier this year. He has also composed for, and played in, numerous shows with Tim Bray Productions and is the resident Musical Director for Hotspot, a monthly cabaret event. Andy is a proud natural redhead, a staunch vegetarian, and hopes he is the first of many to play
in the ASB Waterfront Theatre.
