Nicholas plays regularly with Josh Shipton and The Blue Eyed Ravens, around the inner-west. He recently performed as Frederick Treves in The Elephant Man, directed by Debbie Smith, at the PACT theatre in Erskinville.
Nicholas studied at the Birmingham School of Speech and Drama (now the BSA) for three years and, after working in the UK for some time, returned home to Australia to play John Darling in the Jim Henson's Creature Shop production of "PAN".
He began acting at the age of 6 when he played the central role (PS) in "Careful He Might Hear You" for which he was nominated Best Actor in 1984.
Nicholas has also worked as a Stage Combat Master and Choreographer, an acting teacher and is a prize winning writer (ICI/STC Young Writers Competition).
