AAR-Abigail-Adriano-photo-by-Daniel-BoudWho is Abigail Adriano?
Abigail Adriano is a passionate performer who loves to sing and dance – but Abi is a teenage girl who eats Kit Kats and binge-watches Rom-Coms and the Gilmore Girls in her bedroom

What would you do differently from what you do now?
There’s nothing in the world that I’d rather be doing. But if I wasn’t performing in Miss Saigon, you’d most likely find me back with blonde hair in some uni classroom!

Who inspires you and why?
My family. Through them, I’ve witnessed real strength and courage.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I think it’s the little things that can make the biggest difference. Giving someone a smile can change their whole day. So I try to make a small gesture to those around me when I can ?

Favourite holiday destination and why?
I haven’t travelled much yet. But so far Japan. I really loved experiencing the traditional and modern beauty of the cities we visited.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Oooo. Honestly the Sydney Opera House is a killer attraction sight to see. I’ve grown up in Sydney my whole life and STILL, it gives me chills when I rock up to work there everyday.

What are you currently reading?
Emma by Jane Austen.

What are you currently listening to?
If by Bread.

Happiness is?
Eating Pho.

What does the future hold for you?
