Bobby Fox: The Irish Boy
 

Bobby Fox is one of the brightest stars in Australia’s entertainment industry. In a career that spans musical theatre, dance and the recording industry, he has cemented himself as one of the most charismatic and talented performers in the country.

Producer Enda Markey announced that Bobby Fox will premiere his new cabaret The Irish Boy at the Studio, Sydney Opera House on Wednesday 5 June at 8:00pm. Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 21 March. The Irish Boy will also play at the Art House Theatre, Wyong on Saturday 22 June.

Originally from Longford, Ireland, Bobby moved to Australia in 2003 and immediately cemented his place as one of our country’s most in demand leading men, starring in Jersey Boys, Hot Shoe Shuffle, Blood Brothers, Assassins and, currently, Saturday Night Fever. His debut album The Fantastic Mr Fox was released by Warner Music Australia and saw Bobby embark on an extensive, sold-out tour of Australia.

But, before charming the audiences of Australia, Bobby was four-time World Champion Irish dancer and traditional musician. He toured the world with the global phenomenon Riverdance, performing at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and Radio City Music Hall.

In this brand-new show Bobby is delighted to combine all of his many talents in a celebration of his heritage and homeland. The Irish Boy is a stunning combination of traditional and modern Irish music, dancing, storytelling and song brought to life through Bobby’s unparalleled showmanship.

In a charming, humorous and heart-warming show, The Irish Boy features the classics Danny Boy, The Foggy Dew, The Fields of Athenry, Whiskey in the Jar, Beautiful Day and Ride On, all told through the eyes of one of the country’s most celebrated exports.

Producer Enda Markey said, “Bobby is one of the most charming and charismatic performers in the country, and it’s been a real labour of love to be able to develop The Irish Boy with him to create a unique celebration of our home country, showcasing Bobby’s incredible talents as a singer, dancer and musician.”
