Additional Information:

Anton is a Lyrical tenor originally from Cape Town, South Africa.




He has been singing, dancing and acting from an early age

and won his first Provincial award for Performing Arts at the tender age of

seven. Not long after, he was

chosen to sing in the Prestigious Eastern Province Choir and went on to be one

of their principle soloists as the choir toured the world.
Even though the performing arts has always been Antons

first love, he graduated from university with a five year law degree in

addition to a performing arts degree in Musical Theatre and Classical

Singing. During his studies he

performed as soloist for a University Choir under the acclaimed Junita

Lamprecht where he met President Nelson Mandela several times as well as the

queen of England, Queen Elizabeth on her tour of South Africa in 1995.Whilst performing professionally and heading up the

performing arts department at an esteemed all boys school for two years, Anton

felt the need to broaden his horizons and moved to London, England to further

his career and also to travel the world.

This lead him to a successful audition for one of the UKs leading

Cruise Liners as production singer and cabaret which he did for six years

During this period he returned on occasion to South Africa to act in a few

musicals and do some television work.




His credits included

Augistin Magaldi in Evita and Judah in Joseph and his Amazing colored

Dream Coat along with quite a few Variety Concerts and television ads. His

travels however now brought Anton to New York and he is hopeful to pursue his

dreams in the Big Apple.
