ABOUT JONATHAN ROXMOUTH
Jonathan has performed in a wide variety of work from musicals to revue to plays and has earned 10 national and international theatre awards. He gained the bulk of his “training” by participating in a number of musicals at the Natal Playhouse. These included GUYS AND DOLLS, OKLAHOMA! (Ali Hakim), THE MIKADO, ME AND MY GIRL and THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. He made his professional debut in the Barnyard’s production of GREASE followed by ROCK ME, AMADEUS and THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY. The big musicals finally beckoned and he played Lun Tha in Packed House Productions’ THE KING AND I.
He joined Roelof Colyn in A HANDFUL OF KEYS – directed by Ian von Memerty and enjoyed a massive success. Jonathan played Gaston in Pieter Toerien and Hazel Feldman’s production of Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. He was then cast as the narrating silver tabby Munkustrap in Pieter Toerien’s revival of CATS.
Thereafter he went solo with his first one-man show, IN BLACK & WHITE, at The Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban to critical acclaim before returning to GREASE –in Pieter Toerien and David Ian’s smash hit production which toured locally and internationally. Jonathan teamed up with Alan Swerdlow to write HATS OFF! – a revue based on the songs of Flanders & Swann, which he performed with Louis Zurnamer.
He was then cast in Pieter Toerien’s production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. Then came his big break – in the role of the Phantom in Pieter Toerien and The Really Useful Group’s record-breaking return production of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. He then toured with the production to the Manila making history as the youngest English-speaking Phantom yet and winning the International Broadway World Award for his performance.
He then returned to revue with TOPSY TURVY followed by NOËL & GERTIE. He was then cast in Pieter Toerien’s 25th Anniversary production of SUNSET BOULEVARD. Jonathan finally completed his debut album, STAGE BY STAGE, and went on a small tour with the subsequent show. Then came his greatest professional challenge, playing Liberace in CALL ME LEE, which he designed, produced and co-wrote with Ian von Memerty. He has just completed his second Musical Theatre album, FROM THE FOOTLIGHTS.
Jonathan was last seen in his first ever play in Pieter Toerien and KickstArt’s production JEEVES & WOOSTER in PERFECT NONSENSE. He has recently completed his sellout SA tour of STAGE BY STAGE.
