Laura Murphy

Composer, Lyricist, Theatre Writer

Laura’s passion for music theatre has led her to the forefront of composing new Australian work.

2022 saw the world premiere of Laura’s original musical THE LOVERS, a pop-infused reimagining of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Sydney Opera House.

Laura began composing in 2009, writing the music and lyrics for WILLIAM AND SPARKLES’ MAGICAL TALES with Ambience Entertainment on the Nine Network. She then went onto compose and write the spin-off series MAGICAL TALES: SURPRISES which was broadcast on 9GO!.

Laura composed and wrote the lyrics for television programs IMAGINATION TRAIN and I AM ME (9GO!) and is currently in early development composing original songs for Ambience Entertainment’s new series THE AGENCY.

Laura is the composer and lyricist for the critically acclaimed new original musical THE DISMISSAL. She completed the co-orchestrations and arrangements for the project which will have a return season in 2023.

Laura is currently developing a number of her own projects, including a stage adaptation of the iconic Australian novel PUBERTY BLUES, produced by Garry McQuinn, and another original musical for the Hayes Theatre.
