Libby was commissioned in 2016 by the former manager of Fleetwood Mac, Dennis Dunstan, and powerhouse vocalist Rebecca O’Connor to choreograph and perform in their show SIMPLY THE BEST which continues to tour Australia and Internationally. At the end of 2016, Libby was then cast as Patty Simcox in GREASE The Arena Experience and toured it around Australia from April 2017 to January 2019. During these two years, in between seasons of GREASE, Libby was in high demand as a choreographer, choreographing shows such as Mary Poppins, Oliver, Legally Blonde and Funny Girl for local theatres and big show-stopping numbers for soirées and events. Libby is beyond excited to be on the Sunshine Coast and continue to share her industry knowledge and passion, teaching Musical Theatre, singing, acting and dancing to all ages.
