Maggie Orr has been passionate about the performing arts from the age of 5 when she organised her mum to take her to ballet lessons, then she organised her young friends to perform in a choir together and then organised her primary school to put on school plays.
She has subsequently performed many lead roles in Wesley School Musicals such as Roxie in Chicago, Maria in West Side Story, Nancy in Oliver, Morticia in The Adams Family and Wendy in Peter Pan. Later this year she plays Rachel in One Man Two Gunners but has also performed as Lady Anne in Richard III, Mary in The Crucible, Titania in Midsummer Nights Dream and Vera in And Then There Were None when the more classical plays were performed. She has trained extensively in dance including to an adult level in ballet, has sung with school, state and national choirs and is currently preparing for both Grade 6 AMEB Musical Theatre and Grade 6 Singing (Classical) Exams. She is currently studying Year 12 at Wesley College. Maggie was delighted to make her TV debut as Young Margaret in Underbelly Files: Chopper which screened on Nine earlier this year.
