Toby Derrick

Born and bred in Melbourne suburbia, you would most likely find the younger Toby busting a move to Michael Jackson in the living room. Taking note, his parents encouraged him to take ballet classes and join the local dance school.

Graduating WAAPA in 2012, with an Advanced Diploma of Performing Arts (Dance), Toby met Shaun Parker at a dance workshop in Sydney, and Shaun decided to give him his professional physical theatre debut. With Shaun Parker & Company, Toby toured Europe, The Middle-East, Asia and Australia with shows HAPPY AS LARRY and TROLLEYS. In Perth, Toby performed with Barking Gecko Theatre Company in 1507, directed by John Sheedy and BUZZ DANCE THEATRE’s Look The Other Way directed by Cadi McCarthy.

Not fully satisfied with Dance, Toby passion for film made him audition for NIDA and WAAPA to pursue Acting. Being accepted into both, but not knowing what to do, he decided to give Sydney a shot. Having credits in Home and Away (2018) Super Wog (2018) & the lead role in an upcoming Feature Film called A Small Punch in a Little Town (2018), House Husbands (2013), Neighbours (2009) and Heath Ledger’s Ned Kelly (2003).
