Vidya Makan

Vidya grew up in Brisbane, Queensland spending most of her time on the football (soccer) field with dreams of one day becoming a Matilda. However, at the age of 14 after playing flower girl number 3 in her high-school production of My Fair Lady, Vidya decided to take on a much more realistic and stable path and made the wise decision to lead a life in showbiz. Having learnt to read music at the age of three (before she was able to read English) she is also a cellist and highly skilled pianist. Vidya is a proud graduate of The Bachelor of Musical Theatre program at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, class of 2015. Vidya has performed extensively throughout Australia since her professional debut in 2016. Alongside her work on commercial and independent stages, she has also performed at Sydney Mardi Gras, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival with her original work. In 2023 she was a featured performer at Junior Theatre Festival Australia and featured on Channel 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention as a guest quiz master. She is currently working on Gadigal country, soaking up so much sunshine she actually got sunburnt for the first time in her life. Wear sunscreen mates.
