In 2022, our very own Fraser Goodreid was cast as Michael Banks

in the Australian tour of Mary Poppins.  

After successfully auditioning for the Brisbane season, he proved to be so talented and valuable

that he ended up touring Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth with the production! 


Fraser performed the role of Michael Banks for 100 shows

and toured with the company for 15 months.   

Fraser worked alongside some of Australia's finest performers;

Stefanie Jones, Jack Chambers, Patti Newton, Marina Prior,

Lucy Maunder, Nancy Hayes, and Robert Grub.



Fusion Arts Inc are so proud of Fraser and all that he's accomplished at such a young age.
