In conversation with Nancye Hayes

Nancye Hayes has performed in many major musical productions including Cabaret, Chicago, Sweeney Todd and Showboat. She has also worked behind the scenes as a choreographer and director. Nancye has appeared on television in programmes as diverse as Home and Away, The Dismissal, and Spicks and Specks. She was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia in 1981.

It would take far too long to list all her career achievements so I’ll just say that Nancye Hayes is a true legend of stage and screen.

I had the opportunity to talk to Nancye during my morning radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM today. She was a delight to meet and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to chat with her. You can hear our conversation by clicking the play button on the audio player at the bottom of this post.

Nancye is in Perth for Australia’s Leading Ladies, an amazing concert event with the WA Symphony Orchestra at the Perth Concert Hall tomorrow, Friday and Saturday evenings. The show features Rachael Beck, Rhonda Burchmore, Judi Connelli OAM, Sharon Millerchip, Geraldine Turner OAM, Anne Wood and conductor Sean O’Boyle.

The seven magnificent leading ladies of musical theatre will perform classics from The Sound of Music, Cabaret, Miss Saigon, Chicago and many others. As well as performing, Nancye will take the additional roles of director and compere.
