The Luckiest team
David Campbell is one of Australia’s leading musical performers. In addition to releasing four Top 10 albums and an ARIA number one live DVD, he has won three Helpmann Awards for his theatre work and live concerts – as well as many other awards both in Australia and internationally. David was the Artistic Director of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival from 2009-2011.
David was performing at the STC and Sydney Opera House by the age of 22 and followed this by becoming the toast of the New York cabaret world (Time Out described him as “creating the biggest buzz since Barbra Streisand”). His 2001 leading role as Johnny O’Keefe in Shout made him a household name in his home country, and established him as a leading light of Australian musical theatre. Since then, he has performed in shows including Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard, Carousel, and Pirates of Penzance – as well as maintaining a hugely successful television and recording career. His albums include The Swing Sessions, The Swing Sessions 2, Good Lovin’ and On Broadway.
Lisa Campbell began her career as an actress, working extensively in theatre and film – including productions in London’s West End, Hungary and Greece, and on the Australian tour of Stephen Daldry’s An Inspector Calls, which led to her settling in Sydney.
Since founding Luckiest Productions, Lisa has produced numerous sell-out shows, including four national tours for David Campbell, and Britney Spears: The Cabaret. She was also Executive Producer of the Sydney season of Simply Barbra, and the documentary feature Backstage Lovin’. Lisa wrote and produced the 2010 documentary David Campbell On Broadway.
From 2009-2011, Lisa was Associate Producer of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. During her time in this role, the festival repeatedly broke attendance and box office records.
Before moving to Australia in 2008, Richard Carroll worked in television production in the UK for ten years, including The Weakest Link, Eggheads, Let Me Entertain You, The Apprentice, and many other primetime projects for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky.
Richard’s work for Luckiest Productions includes producing Simply Barbra at The Supper Club in Sydney, and Britney Spears: The Cabaret in Sydney and Melbourne. He also directed and produced the DVD documentary feature Backstage Lovin’, and was Associate Producer on the documentary David Campbell On Broadway.
