Enda Markey was born in Ireland. He was awarded a scholarship to study Musical Theatre at Laine Theatre Arts in London and went on to appear in musical theatre productions in Ireland and the UK before moving to Australia in 2002, where he worked extensively as a performer in television, plays, musicals and concerts.
His production of Side By Side By Sondheim toured Australia between April 2011 and November 2012 starring (at various times): Rachael Beck, Amelia Cormack, Margi de Ferranti, Michael Falzon, Lucy Maunder, and Geraldine Turner with Jessica Rowe as the narrator. In April 2012, Enda presented a gala concert version of this show starring some of Australia’s most popular theatre and television stars, headlined by West End and Broadway superstar Ruthie Henshall.
In November 2013, Enda’s next production, Boublil & Schönberg’s Do You Hear The People Sing? premiered at Shanghai Grand Theatre starring Michael Ball, Lea Salonga, David Harris, Amanda Harrison and Marie Zamora. This spectacular concert features a full symphony orchestra and 100-person choir and has also received enormous acclaim in Taipei and Manila, where a fundraising concert raised AU$710,000 to assist with the rebuilding of 240 homes devastated by Typhoon Yolanda through Habitat for Humanity Philippines. Do You Hear The People Sing? will continue to tour internationally (including Australia) until at least 2017.
Enda toured Australian show business icon Geraldine Turner in her show Turner’s Turn which enjoyed great success in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
His Helpmann Award nominated production of Blood Brothers played in Melbourne and Sydney, where it played to standing ovations and sold out houses during its extended run in 2015.
