MEET THE CAST
Stevie Nicholson is one of the world's most recognisable children's entertainers. Having been the face of Hi-5 for almost 10 years, Stevie has continued his work in the children’s entertainment industry through the creation of The Superdudes.
Originally an award winning journalist, travelling the world as Assistant Editor of Australian Tennis Magazine, Stevie furthered his career through his training at RADA in London and NIDA in Sydney.
As a member of Hi-5 Stevie was a key member of the team both on and off screen Writing, Producing and Directing on the award winning Hi-5 TV series.
Stevie is dedicated to continue to grow Superdudes and is extremely proud of what the brand has achieved to this point “Since its inception The Superdudes has grown every year to be one of the most exciting Touring Children’s Groups in the worlds, I’m so proud of what we have achieved with our Live touring and look forward to the future.”
Having been a member of the Australian children’s group Hi-5 for a number of years, Tanika is a familiar face to millions of families around the world. Tanika is not only the charming Flutterby for all of The Superdudes Live Shows but she has been the choreographer for the group since 2015.
When she is not on stage with The Superdudes Tanika is an international model, having been the face of campaigns for Nike, OSIM and Changi Airport. She is also the founder of You&Mei, an ethical fashion label that works to alleviate young women in Poverty in Myanmar.
Tanika was recently cast as Queen Iduna in the Disney Musical Frozen and will be touring around Australia in 2021. The Superdudes are very proud of Tanika.
Nicholas not only performs the role of crowd favourite Pencil Pirate, but he is the illustrator and co-creator of the best selling children's book The Superdudes.
As the resident illustrator of The Superdudes, Nicholas has enthralled audiences around the world with his live drawing during The Superdudes stage shows. This engagement has transferred online with Nick taking fans through live drawing tutorials on The Superdudes Social Media Channels.
The genesis for The Superdudes started way back in 2010 when Stevie and Nick (Old Uni friends) started bouncing around ideas for a book. A few years later The Superdudes was born and Nick has been a part of every live stage show ever since. Superdudes wouldn’t be what it is without Nick and his talents.
James is one of Australia’s most talented and diverse performers. Best known for his roles as a host on ABC and also the critically acclaimed Splatalot, James has been a familiar face on Australian Television screens for over a decade. His other credits include Australia’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance.
Elmer joined the Superdudes in 2019 and has quickly become a favourite of children and parents alike. His wild and wacky portrayal of Bubble Trouble provides the perfect comedic relief for the group.
