Emerging from the regional town of Gol Gol in NSW, Adrian Barilà left a successful family-owned vineyard business to pursue a career in Musical Theatre at Federation University’s Arts Academy. During his time in Ballarat, he has performed in a thrilling, technically superb and hilarious variety of content “Smash Hit” (Constable Craig); “Urinetown” (Billy Boy Bill/Bobby Strong – Cover); “Thoroughly Modern Millie” (Jimmy Smith – Cover); “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” (Horace/Neville Landless – Cover).
Adrian performed his self-devised cabaret, “I’ll Have What He’s Having” in both Melbourne and Ballarat. It was well received that his cabaret was one of four shows selected to be a part of the 2015’s Ballarat Cabaret Festival, proving his chops as a powerhouse writer and performer combo on the festival circuit.
Adrian has also appeared as an extra in season four of “The Doctor Blake Mysteries” and Vance Joy’s “Georgia” music video, giving him a taste for the world of screen acting.
