90's Flashback

Stephen Fisher-King reels in the big one

On With the Show’s

Flashback to Variety Today 1997

Stephen Fisher-King (top left) is surrounded by his peers at the 1997 Australian Entertainment MO Awards in Sydney.

FOLLOWING rave reviews in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Fisher-King has won the most prestigious award in Australian variety entertainment.

Stephen actually picked up two `MO’ Awards at the gala ceremony at Sydney’s Entertainment Centre on June 18. First up, he won the Best Male Vocalist Variety Performer, ahead of Marty Rhone, Sandy Scott and Tony Pantano, then took out the equivalent to the Gold Logie … The Peter Allen Performer of the Year Award. This is an award for excellence in live entertainment.

Also nominated for the Peter Allen Award were big names like Julie Anthony, The Four Kinsmen and Vince Sorrenti.

The award has special significance for Stephen. While studying at the Canberra School of Music he supported Peter Allen in concert, and therefore both performed with and met the great Australian.

Winning both awards caps off a wonderful year for Stephen. After winning last year’s `MO’ for Best Male Vocalist, he went on to star alongside Anthony Warlow and Sarah Brightman in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, which toured Australia, New Zealand and Asia, and for which Stephen received rave reviews.

On top of that, Stephen performs his one man show on the cabaret circuit. This takes the audience on a journey through musical theatre from the 1940s right up to shows like Jeckle and Hyde which are yet to be performed in Australia.

Stephen is classically trained, and boasts a rich tenor voice, as well as unbridled energy and enthusiasm, enough to be recognised by his peers and agents as the best in Australia.

He has been singing professionally since he was 16 but started with the Woden Valley Youth Choir as a boy-soprano at nine years of age. He went on to study at the Canberra School of Music, where he performed in numerous operas before starring in the ACT production of Evita. It was here he was spotted by agents and taken to Sydney.

Stephen has shared the role of Che with Glen Shorrock in the State Theatre production of Evita, he’s also performed the role of Tony in West Side Story, the Barber in Hello Dolly alongside Jill Perryman, Warren Mitchell and Jackie Love, and as a soloist with Anthony Warlow and Sarah Brightman in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
