Lachlan Murdoch – Artistic Director

Lachlan Murdoch – Artistic Director

Lachlan’s responsibilities are varied, from managing the artistic content and entertainment value of the shows, to Co-Directing each production that goes on the road, to being the only one qualified to drive Alpha’s huge touring truck, to supporting the Company Manager for all the logistic requirements to successfully run a tour. Lachlan also performs in all shows, generally as a comedic character, at which he excels. Audiences delight in his many hilarious off-script moments, as there really hasn’t been a performer as funny or engaging, especially for children, since Jim Carrey. Lachlan’s skills on stage and off, make him a valuable part of the company. He is also very passionate about the messages Alpha delivers within the stories – something he wished he had knowledge of growing up himself. Lachlan hopes to see you at your next show, doing whatever he can to make the show amazing and hilarious!

Jacqui Martin – Company Manager

Jacqui Martin – Company Manager

Jacqui has been working for Alpha Shows since 2011. Joining the company to be a part of their brand new show of The Little Mermaid. Since then she has been involved in almost every Alpha Show on offer and has been Tour Manager for most of 2012. Performing has always been a passion for Jacqui, and within this company she has been able to fulfill her love and passion for performance whilst also gaining some fantastic managerial skills.
Jacqui also co-directs a lot of the Alpha Show productions with Lachlan Murdoch. It has been incredibly enriching to be such a big part of the creative process. But all of our rehearsals are such a great collaboration of every single one of the actors’ skills and unique ideas.
Jacqui really believes in the messages that are being taught each and every day in an Alpha Shows performance, and looks forward to sharing it with every school that she performs to. Alpha has been a very rewarding experience for Jacqui so far.

Roles-

  • The Alpha Show of Beauty and the Beast- Luminaire/ Jiggins
  • The Alpha Show of Little Mermaid- King Neptune (2011) / Ezekiel & Geeves / Yabbi (2012)
  • The Alpha Show of Hercules- Zeus / Amphitryon
