Ben Mingay August 2019

BEN MINGAY

BASS/BARITONE

Ben was originally a construction worker from Newcastle who fell into classical music when he was dared to audition for the Conservatorium of Music by his mates. He subsequently won a scholarship and went on to train in Opera Voice for several years – a twist of fate that changed the trajectory of his life forever.

Stage credits include: Evan in Vivid White; Jud Fry in Oklahoma; Achilles in Paris – A Rock Odyssey; Thomas in Rolling Thunder Vietnam; The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera; Zack Mayo in An Officer and a Gentleman; Tommy De Vito in Jersey Boys; Billy Kostecki in Dirty Dancing; Stewpot in South Pacific; Billy in Sideshow Alley and Berger in Hair. Ben is also a member of the hit singing group Swing On This.

Screen credits include: Jim in Frayed; Alan Bond in House of Bond; Grease Nolan in Hacksaw Ridge; Trystan Powell in Home and Away; Rob Duffy in Wonderland; Buzz Graham in Packed To The Rafters; Troy Baxter in Blue Heelers and Jim Beatson in All Saints.

Ben is thrilled to be back as Sweeney in Stuart Maunder’s acclaimed production in which he made his debut in 2019 with West Australian Opera.
