With a career that began in theatre in Wellington, Caleb sprung to national attention on the Voice Australia as a member of Team Delta, performing songs by Queen, The Darkness, Starship and fun. Caleb is known for his vocal flexibility and range which, along with his skills as a character actor, puppeteer, MC and drag queen, has taken him around the world.

After television he joined The Ten Tenors for their sellout New Zealand tour of The Power of Ten, donned sequins and heels as Felicia for a transatlantic season of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and was lead vocalist for Australian “ballroom rebels” Burn the Floor.

Later in 2017, now no stranger to a pair of heels and a tuck, Caleb portrayed two LGBT queens from Sydney’s Kings Cross in the immersive cabaret hit Hidden Sydney, based on real life events from the glittering mile.

Other credits include Hairspray, High Fidelity, Grease, Little Shop of Horrors, The Australia and Asia tours of Peppa Pig Live! Treasure Hunt, Buttercup’s Big Break, Pirate Blue and the Panto-Loons, and NZ original musical 1931.

Caleb most recently portrayed Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar at The Court Theatre and Galileo in We Will Rock You at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

THE CRITICS ON ‘JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR’…

“Judas, played with searing talent by Caleb Jago-Ward, has all the getup of angry rock to support his superb performance. 

He gives us anguish at a scale rarely encountered”

Lindsay Clark, Theatre View

“Caleb Jago-Ward as Judas was combustible, scorching his way through a hugely demanding role with a mesmerising voice and riveting stage presence”

Chris Moore, The Press

“Caleb Jago-Ward was a commanding and electrifying Judas. His ethereal singing gave me chills on several occasions throughout the performance and his physical presence was laced with enough energy to power the entire building.

The conflict and emotional turmoil we witnessed was haunting and felt beautifully intimate”

Sophie Ricketts, Backtage Christchurch

 

…AND ‘WE WILL ROCK YOU’

“Caleb Jago-Ward as Galileo is phenomenal - it’s actually difficult to adequately express how extraordinary his voice is. It is a treat to see him throw himself into what must be a very fun role to perform and apply his vocal talent to. Every song was a winner”

Kate Divett, Backstage Christchurch

“Reprising songs made famous by a man with a four octave range, perfect pitch and insane control of a velvety vibrato must be a daunting task for any performer. That would be why Stephen Robertson and Richard Marrett cast one of the brightest stars of New Zealand’s musical theatre scene to play Galileo - Caleb Jago-Ward.

His powerful vocal skills are endowed with the emotional intensity required for his most demanding numbers, I Want to Break Free and Bohemian Rhapsody”

Ruth Agnew, What’s Up Christchurch

“Caleb Jago-Ward was excellent as Galileo, a fabulous singer singing what sounded like an ideal role, belting out big numbers and pulling the heartstrings with a touching Who Wants to Live Forever. Jago-ward relished being front and centre, highly entertaining”

Patrick Shepherd, The Press
