A classically trained vocalist and instrumentalist, Chelsey Duplak is a versatile performer with a three and a half octave vocal range. She has worked nationally, in Canada’s most respected regional theatres, commercially in Film & TV, and is a graduate with Honours from Sheridan College's Music Theatre Performance Program.
Chelsey was thrilled to be cast as the alternate for Glinda and Aunt Em in the Original Canadian Company of The Right Honourable Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE WIZARD OF OZ for Mirvish Productions, directed by British Theatre Director Jeremy Sams. When asked to join THE WIZARD OF OZ 1st US National Tour, Chelsey took over the role of Aunt Em and continued as the Glinda alternate.
Her journey continued when Director Dennis Garnhum brought the world premiere of The Honourable Nicholas Lloyd Webber and Jamie Reid’s THE LITTLE PRINCE to Theatre Calgary. THE LITTLE PRINCE is the imaginative re-telling of the beloved story by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Chelsey played the role of Taygete, singing under the exceptional music supervisor and co-orchestrater Simon Lee.
