ADDITIONAL INFO: Geraldine Turner is a true icon of Australian show business. Throughout a career that spans four decades, she has earned her place in the Australian Theatre as one of this country’s most legendary leading ladies.
While her roles in the stage musicals Anything Goes, Chicago, Oliver, Into The Woods, Company, Cabaret, A Little Night Music, Call Me Madam and Sweeney Todd established her as an award-winning musical theatre star, Geraldine has also won enormous acclaim for her roles in plays such as Steel Magnolias, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll and Don’s Party; on television in House Husbands, Home and Away, All Saints and the films Careful He Might Hear You, Summerfield and The Wog Boy.
