About Us ~ Sam
Growing up in Wagga Wagga, Sam moved to Sydney to study classical voice and Music Education at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music under Robert Allman AM OBE. Here he was able to experience using music in classrooms and how your children respond to music in their development.
He has appeared as a vocalist in 'Haste to the Wedding', John Field's Australian musical 'Evie & the Birdman' and was cast as Jinx in the Australian premiere of 'Forever Plaid.' Other musical productions include 'Sunday in the Park with George', 'Sweeney Todd' and 'Seven Little Australians'.
Sam's first appearance for The Wiggles was in 1998, touring Australia, New Zealand & the USA as host of "The Dorothy the Dinosaur Show". But more recently has been appearing as Professor Singalottasonga and Dapper Dave in the TV series, DVDs and live shows. Sam has also provided vocals for and appeared in the Wiggles videos 'Toot, Toot!', 'Cold Spaghetti Western', ' Live Hot Potatoes', 'Santa's Rockin', 'Sailing All Round The World', the new "Big Red Car!", "Wake Up Jeff", "Splish Splash Big Red Boat" & "Racing to the Rainbow". (Phew!) He has also found a challenge providing additional vocals for the Spanish & Taiwanese Wiggles.
Sam has toured the world extensively as part of the Wiggles Live Show, including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Hong Kong, China & Japan. Over this time, Sam understudied Greg Page and filled in as the yellow Wiggles for more than 150 shows. Sam feels honoured to pull on the yellow skivvie and is looking forward to his future with The Wiggles with great excitement! He would like to send his love and thanks to his beautiful wife Lyn.
