Prior to Xanadu The Musical, Christie completed a three week Melbourne season of her one woman show Britney Spears: The Cabaret to sell-out crowds and rave reviews, after 2009 seasons at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival and in Sydney (Sydney Critics Award Nomination).
Prior to this she played the title role in Sugar (Production Company) and earlier this year received a Helpmann Award nomination for her role of Janet Van De Graaf in The Drowsy Chaperone (Melbourne Theatre Company).
In 2005 Christie made her musical theatre debut in Grease: The Arena Spectacular, playing the role of Patti Simcox and understudying the role of Sandy. She was then asked to join the London cast and continue the show in the UK.
On returning to Australia Christie landed the role of April in Stephen Sondheim‟s Company, for which she won the 2008 Sydney Critics Award for Best New Actress.
Other shows include 42nd Street and The Boyfriend (Maisy) for the Production Company; The Rocky Horror Show (in which she understudied and played the role of Janet); the Korean tour of Eurobeat; Starting Here, Starting Now; and The Shakespeare Review.
