Introducing Our MC
Michelle Nightingale is a vocalist, actress and presenter. A seasoned performer, her experiences range from corporate events to cabaret to roles in a number of television programs and films.

In 2013, Michelle had her own show 'Born to Run' in the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. 'Born To Run', is a look at the iconic songs of Bruce Springsteen coupled with a story of a young Australian woman. Michelle then went on to perform the lead female role of Laura Jesson in 'Brief Encounter', which was part of the Australian tour for the UK's Kneehigh Theatre.

In 2012, she made her debut into Cabaret with her own show called 'A Nightingale sings...' and her first performance with the State Opera Chorus. She has been honoured to sing the Australian National Anthem on many occasions over the past 20 years on a local, state, national and international level.

At the age of 16, Michelle started performing on television for the ABC's music education program 'Here's the Beat'. She has gone on to appear on other TV programs, including The Music Shop, McLeod's Daughters and as the weather presenter on ABC news. Michelle has also had roles in such films as 'The Babadook'; 'Closed for Winter'; 'Ten Empty'; 'Boys are back in Town' and 'Tale of Obsession'. Michelle was recently heard as the voice of Claire on the SBS series of Danger 5 and is now heard for many corporate voice overs. She is regularly engaged as the MC for numerous corporate and fundraising functions.

She will soon be seen in the Ben Elton film, Three Summers, alongside Magda Szubanski, Michael Caton, John Waters and Jacqueline McKenzie.

A teacher for over 20 years, Michelle's experience ranges from directing her own music programme for pre-schoolers, to vocal coaching and audition preparation, currently teaching from her own private studio. She strongly believes in sharing the joy of singing and music and volunteers her time as the Musical Director for a community choir, Birds of a Feather, in the Adelaide Hills and is the President of the Stirling Community Theatre.
