Wendy Waters


Wendy Waters is an award-winning author, composer, lyricist and librettist. Born in Queensland, she grew up in Sydney, lived in the USA for six years, travelled extensively, and now lives in Sydney, Australia.  In 2011 she volunteered to work with OASIS Salvation Army Crisis Centre in Sydney, motivating musically talented, underprivileged children which gave her the inspiration for her debut novel, Catch the Moon, Mary.


In 2015 Amanda Redman suggested Waters write a play based on her novel. The play, co-written by Waters and Jemina Macedo, with a musical score by composer, Frank Seckold had a staged reading at the Tristan Bates Theatre in September 2017. The play has been selected by Fame Spectrum Academy as their debut project and will be staged in Scotland in 2019.


Waters has written four musicals: ALEXANDER, FRED, GODDESSES and MIRIAM and is currently writing Book & Lyrics for THE LAST TALE with composer Shanon D. Whitelock. THE LAST TALE is being workshopped in Melbourne in September 2019.


FRED, a four-hander book musical was produced in Australia in June 2018 by the Tweed Theatre Company and will be produced in Scotland in 2019.


Both FRED and the play, Catch the Moon, Mary were shortlisted for the Darlinghurst Theatre Company’s 2019 season in Sydney. You can listen to some of the songs from FRED on Waters’ site
