Composer & Director

Dr Judy Stubbs began writing incidental music for theatre whilst studying opera at the NSW Conservatorium of Music under Myra Lamber OA, and composition & arrangement at the University of Sydney under Ross Edwards. Her music was featured in diverse productions including at the (then) Nimrod Theatre, Seymour Centre, New Theatre, La Mama and the Ensemble Theatre. She has written the soundtracks for Australian film projects shown on The History Channel and SBS, and has been the recipient of Australia Council grants to complete major works, such as Under One Sky (fusion Sufi and Gregorian Chant Mass).

Dr Stubbs was commissioned to adapt the soundtrack of The Dalfram Dispute, originally composed for Why Documentaries, for the National Traditional Chinese Orchestra (Fenghuang - The Phoenix Suite), which was awarded a National Chinese Arts Award in 2018. Her recent commissioned work for Axis (Physical Theatre Company), The Construct (about the Melbourne COVID lockdown) was featured at the 2022 Sydney Festival and the 2021 Merrigong Artistic Development Program. She also teaches singing, has directed many vocal ensembles, and has toured Australia and internationally as a singer.
