The Wiggles

  • It's Wiggle Time!

    It's an exciting new era for The Wiggles with a new generation of Wiggles fans singing and dancing with Anthony (Blue), Emma (Yellow), Lachy (Purple) and Simon (Red)!

    The Wiggles are the world's most popular children's entertainment group which formed in Sydney, Australia in 1991. Having performed for over 26 years,  it's now the case that children who once saw the fab four of fun are now bringing their children to enjoy the best in early childhood entertainment! .

    What a wonderful wiggly 12 months it’s been. Towards the end of last year, The Wiggles were presented with an ARIA awarded Gold album for sales of The Best of The Wiggles. They also won their 13th ARIA award for Best Children’s Album for their wonderful album Wiggle Town!

    The Wiggles toured across Australia, New Zealand and Canada and for the first time in many years, The Wiggles returned to perform across the United Kingdom and Ireland. In true Wiggles fashion, there were over 200,000 tickets sold for more than 320 shows in over 130 cities/locations! But until they come to a town near you, Emma, Lachy, Simon and Anthony can be seen on ABC Kids and soon in their wonderful new TV series Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle!

  • Anthony

    Anthony Field is now in his 26th year as the Blue Wiggle!

    In his words 'I feel very blessed to have performed with so many wonderful entertainers over the years, making TV, music and theatre for the most important audience of all, pre-schoolers!'

    Anthony graduated from Macquarie University's Institute of Early Childhood, wanting to teach in a pre-school environment and, in his spare time, perform educational theatrical shows with his fellow grads, Murray, Greg and mate, Jeff!

    However, teaching took a back seat to Wiggling, 'I am teaching in a much bigger classroom these days, and incredibly all over the world!', Anthony says.

    Anthony enjoys everything Wiggly, making music in the studio with the crew, live shows, TV and especially meeting children and families who love The Wiggles.

    Anthony dedicates his performances to his family and would like to acknowledge the hard work of everyone behind the scenes at The Wiggles office and in Production and on Tour.

  • Emma

    The Girl With A Bow In Her Hair

    Well, what a bowtiful year it has been... Wiggly adventures, travelling to the UK and Ireland, nursery rhymes, the Emma and Lachy show and the bowtiful ballet barre!

    I designed a floor mat with Hunter Products, that enabled age appropriate ballet exercises so that children have the opportunity to be initiated into the world of ballet and dance. Some of the exercises are ones that I do every day before the shows. I started dancing at the age of 4, incorporating ballet and Irish dancing soon after. Then I went on to study jazz, tap, contemporary, hip hop and character dancing. After completing my schooling at The McDonald College, I received a full scholarship to study editing at Sydney Film School. I loved learning about all the aspects of screen production. I also finished my full time dance course at ED5International and after graduating, and whilst auditioning, I went on to complete my Masters in Media Arts and Production at UTS. Currently I am enrolled at Macquarie University, completing a PHD in Cinematic Music for Children with a Hearing Impairment. Sign language has always been my passion and we have incorporated Auslan (Australian) and ASL (American) signing into our live shows and in the new TV series Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle!

    Throughout the new TV series, the dancing has taken on a Celtic flair. We have been learning Highland dancing and the locals in Glasgow certainly liked my yellow kilt! With my own background in Irish dancing it was a real treat to perform with the RTE Orchestra in Dublin, where plenty of mini-Emma's were Irish dancing in the aisles!

    To all our wonderful, wiggly cast and crew on the road, in the office and at home, thank you so very much.

    So please enjoy the dancing, singing, wiggling, sign language and have a bowtiful day!

  • Simon

    Simon grew up in Sydney and after finishing school studied Sports Science at university, later accepted into Theatre Nepean at the University of Western Sydney and graduated in 1993.

    Simon has worked in television on shows such as Water Rats, Home and Away and All Saints and has worked extensively in musical theatre over the past 20 years touring the world in productions such as The Phantom of the Opera where he played the title role of The Phantom well over 100 times. He played the role of Old Deuteronomy in the musical Cats and toured China in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. He has performed in the musical South Pacific a couple of times, also appearing in the movie, starring Glenn Close and Harry Connick Jnr. Other theatre credit include The Witches of Eastwick, The Sunshine Club, The Villain of Flowers and even a stint at Opera Australia performing in the opera Fidelio, following in his grandparents footsteps who were both highly accomplished and respected opera singers.

    Simon’s relationship with The Wiggles started many years ago in the recording studio where he became one of their main backing vocalists. His bass voice can be heard on recordings such as Wiggle Bay, Wiggly Gremlins, Spaghetti Western, Top of the Tots, The Wiggles Go Bananas just to name a few. In 2009 he also played the role of King John in a new Wiggles TV production The Kingdom of Paramithi and then joined the Wiggles touring company playing the role of Ringo the Ringmaster in 2010. In 2016 Simon produced a classical children’s album Carnival of the Animals. The music is by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens and is performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Simon wrote, narrated and sung on the album and is thrilled to be able to introduce orchestral music to children around the world. Carnival of the Animals can been seen as part of the new Wiggles TV series Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle.

    At the start of 2017 Simon was thrilled to be asked to put on the old Cats make up again and play the role of Old Deuteronomy in Cats for Packemin Productions. On a personal note 2017 has been a wonderful year as Simon and Lauren got married in January at Luna Park in Sydney and yes, he was given the night off from Cats to get married. 'Lauren and I getting married surrounded by such close family and friends was the greatest night of my life'. A great year both personally and professionally, he is looking forward to what 2018 will bring.

  • Lachy

    Lachy hopes that this year's wiggly adventures have made thousands of children around Australia, and the world, smile, enjoying the wiggly music, songs and dance.

    In his eighth year of wiggling, Lachy has loved writing and co-producing the music with Anthony Field for the wiggly albums. This included Nursery Rhymes, Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas and the new TV series Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle, as well as writing and singing on Jimmy Barnes' new children's album, Och Aye Gnu.

    A wonderful year of wiggly touring included the Emma and Lachy show, visiting audiences in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide, bringing the opportunity to perform a slightly gentler acoustic show for these audiences.

    Lachy is a graduate of WAAPA (The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts). He has played the piano from the age of 4 and loves playing sport, singing, song writing and listening to The Beach Boys greatest hits.

    One of the highlights of Lachy's year was busking in the Temple Bar region of Ireland with Anthony, bagpiper, Dougie and Banjo man, Oliver Brian. It was wonderful learning the songs of Ireland, being amongst the crowds of locals, seeing tourists, hen's parties and certainly enjoying the music as they danced in streets.

    To the brilliant crew, office friends, and wiggly cast mates, he says thank you. His family that he loves and his bowtiful wife with the bow in her, Emma, whom he adores.
