After saying farewell to theatre in 2019, Ursula is returning to her first love, singing, in this exciting performance as a part of the digital stage.

Over the past 20 years Ursula has worked as an actor, singer and writer in theatre, television and film (Top End Wedding, Mystery Road, Australia, Jindabyne, Redfern Now). In 2019, Yovich claimed four Helpmann Awards as co-playwright for Barbara and The Camp Dogs including Best Musical and Best Original Score, as well as Yovich winning Best Female Actor in a Musical.
