Producer Adrian Storey has worked all over the world, including in the West End and on Broadway. He has been a proud resident of Point Cook in Melbourne’s west for 12 years.
Theater and music producer Adrian Storey moved from London to Melbourne 12 years ago.
After Mr Storey traveled to Australia for work, he and his family fell in love with the country.
Mr Storey established the Melbourne-based production and management company StoreyBoard Entertainment after his years in the West End and on Broadway.
His credits include Chess the Musical, Barnum, Follies, Jersey Boys, Magic Mike Live, Fiddler on the Roof and Sondheim on Sondheim.
Mr Storey’s current project is the Crossroads Live production of Hairspray starring Shane Jacobson, Todd McKenney, Rhonda Burchmore, Rob Mills, Asabi Goodman and Carmel Rodrigues, which opens at the Regent Theater on August 7.
My previous home before moving to Australia was a very nice two-storey cottage.
It was built in 1901 and was in a small area named Morden located at the very end of the southern section of the Northern Line.
Obviously, as I worked in the West End, it was very convenient to live on the train line.
I lived there for about four or five years.
It was a really fabulous part of London to live in, it was very multicultural and it had a lovely historic building called Morden Park Hall.
I’m at Point Cook. We have been there for 12 years this year, we built the house off plan.
During the first few years there, we had the idea of moving to Altona or somewhere else.
But with the 12 years of growth that have happened at Point Cook, we’ve come to love it.
I like the fact that we are only half an hour from the city, it’s great when you go to the theater.
My favorite part of the house would be my office. The walls are lined with memorabilia from shows I’ve done both in the West End and here in Australia.
We have a small holiday home in Cairns which we have just purchased.
We would never leave Melbourne, but it is absolutely fantastic to hop on a plane and sunbathe, swim, relax and switch off there.
I guess my dream home would be to expand this and have something with a view of Daintree Forest, almost like a semi-retirement place.
