Margi de Ferranti has been a part of the Australian show business industry since 1986, as an actor, singer, producer and now mentor for many up and coming musical theatre and cabaret artists.
Her career began when she won the 1987 Grace Bros Contemporary Singing Competition and followed up immediately as the winner of the first ‘Pot Luck’ series judges by the late and great Bernard King. Since then, Margi has gone on to star as Donna in the national tour of ‘Mamma Mia!’, play the role of Diane in ‘What the World Needs Now’, Rizzo in the 1994 GFO Production of ‘Grease’, Miss Bell in ‘Fame the Musical’ opposite Thelma Houston, for which she received a Mo Nomination, Guilietta in ‘Aspects of Love’, Dot in ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ and has performed in ‘Les Miserables’ in five countries.
Margi was the Inaugural Winner of The Sydney Cabaret Convention in 1997, after which, she performed her show ‘It’s Delightful, It’s Delicious, It’s de Ferranti’ for the famous, 88’s club in New York and has since written and performed in many cabaret shows with the likes of Leonie Page, Rodney Dobson and Susan Ann Walker.
Television credits include ‘White Collar Blue’, ‘All Saints’ and the 2002 made-for-TV version of ‘South Pacific’ starring Glen Close.
Margi has also been the producer and director of the very successful ‘Hats Off’ fundraising concert series, for Oz Showbiz Cares/ Equity Fights Aids, since 1998.
Since 2005 Margi has spent her time developing a now thriving private practice, known as ‘dstudio’. She continues to perform, but mainly focuses her time on sharing her wealth of knowledge with up and coming stars as well as industry professionals.
