TAP alumni stars in Rocky Horror

​A former Canterbury-Bankstown Talent Advancement Program student is the latest Aussie star to rise to fame after being cast as the lead in the Rocky Horror Show.

Adam Rennie, who is receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of Frank-N-Furter, was a member of TAP from 2002-2004.

"Everyone has been extremely kind. I have felt so much support coming my way from the industry, our company and the audiences," Rennie said.

"The Rocky Horror Show has always been on my bucket list. It is the perfect mix of a musical, rock concert and comedy.

"Stepping into the role of Frank has been a total surprise and an exciting challenge but one I am thrilled to tackle."

Rennie attributed part of his success to Council’s TAP, which helped him develop as a performer.

"Having to prepare and present new material for feedback every few months kept me focused, and nothing will help you learn as quickly as performing in front of an audience. The performance opportunities I was given throughout my time in TAP probably helped me most of all."

Rennie said if he could offer any advice to the next generation of TAP students, it would be "to work hard and be persistent."

"I would say, if you have a passion for the arts it’s worth throwing everything you have at it and seeing where you end up. It can be scary and uncertain at times but so can any career, so why not work towards one that you love?" he said.

After graduating from the TAP program, Rennie joined the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, where Australian icon Hugh Jackman also studied.

Rennie was the recipient of the American Society of Composers, Artists and Publishers (ASCAP) The Bound for Broadway Scholarship, which was the catalyst for his big move overseas. In 2012, he arrived in New York, where he performed in more than 40 states in a variety of productions such as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Once We Lived Here, Flashdance – The Musical, and alongside actress, Debbie Reynolds, in the Broadway show Irene. While back home, he’s starred in Crazy for You, Jekyll & Hyde, The Producers and Love Never Dies.

Rennie is currently performing in the Rocky Horror Show in Adelaide, as part of a national tour, and was last week secured in the lead role for the Brisbane and Perth seasons.
