Tesla has starred in over 3000 live stage show performances
around the world. 1000 of those shows has been his own one-man
variety show that he created called “THE DAN THOMPSON SHOW”
He has been working in the entertainment industry for over 30 years.
Danny started performing at the age of 7 as the youngest
member of “The Sunshine Singers” performing in shopping centres
and theme parks like Dream World. He also worked in Productions with
the Australian Ballet Company such as Onegin, Romeo & Juliet,
Quixote, and Swan Lake.
Throughout his school years he produced, directed and performed
every month for 2000 of his fellow schoolmates.
He studied with the best teachers in New York, London and Sydney in all
aspects of performing from singing, acting, and dancing. One of his
dancing teachers was award-winning choreographer Dein Perry who
created “Tap Dogs” which led to Danny being one of the Tap dancers
in the Fox Searchlight movie “BOOTMEN” starring Sam Worthington
and Adam Garcia. Which meant he was invited to perform with Adam
as one of the lead tappers at the Opening Ceremonies of 2000 Olympic
Games live in front of an audience of 100,000 people and telecast to 4
billion people worldwide.
A career highlight for Danny Tesla was when he was cast as Eugene
in “GREASE The Arena
Spectacular”. Which broke all box office
records. And still holds the record to this day. He worked along side
Australia’s biggest stars like Dannii Minogue
Anthony Warlow and John Farnham.
Because of his creative contribution to that production he was asked
back into two other productions by the same company to reprise his
role. Danny has now performed GREASE over 300 times to over a million
people around Australia and New Zealand.
Danny was invited to perform at some corporate events in Singapore in
2003. And since then has performed at over 750 events in Singapore.
He decided in 2009 to base himself
in Singapore and became the
Creative Director and founder of“Broadway Production Company Pte
Ltd” which not only produced more shows for corporate events but
also TV commercials and a Stage Production called
"CITY GYM The Musical” which was staged at Jubilee Hall in 2013.
Danny wrote the script, music and lyrics to CITY GYM.
He also directed
and produced the Musical as well as starred in it.
