Lachlan wasn’t so much introduced to the performing arts, but more born into them. With family ties in opera, dance and the backstage world of theatre, Lachlan grew familiar with the stage from a very young age. After much of his earlier years being involved with Adelaide Youth Theatre (where he met both Ben and Kyle), highlights included three overseas tours, performing in four different Disney Theme Parks, and the occasional professional role including Different Fields (SINGular Productions, 2010).
Lachlan grew even closer to Ben and Kyle through their teenage years as they all attended Scotch College together, where they also met a (very) young Jack Conroy! He’s a founding member of The 60 Four, having been there since that first gig in 2015, and has adored every second of being a part of this quartet through its many different iterations.
Lachlan auditioned for Flinders Drama Centre and started in 2018. Currently in his third year, Lachlan has been loving the learning process of becoming an actor and looks forward to hitting the industry. Along with all this, Lachlan is a keen musician playing keys/synths in local Adelaide act SODA, and writing/playing bass with fellow 60 Four member Kyle Hall whenever he can.
Jack is originally from Adelaide, South Australia, where he first started dabbling in musical theatre. He first began his performance journey at 12 years of age when he decided to audition for 'West Side Story' with Scotch College in Year 7. This quickly grew into a passion and has persisted ever since.
Living in Melbourne for the past year and a half, Jack has been working to complete his Diploma in Musical Theatre at Ministry of Dance which finished up at the end of 2019. Jack was also on tour with The Book of Mormon Australia/New Zealand which had just opened in Auckland before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
Jack is absolutely thrilled to be back with The 60 Four for 2021.
