Calista is a proud kiwi born artist, originally from Tauranga, New Zealand but is now residing in Sydney. Following her graduation from the National Institute of Dramatic Art, she was fortunate enough to join the original cast of SHOWGIRL! aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, before making her professional musical debut as Lorraine in the New Zealand tour of Jersey Boys.

Most recently, Calista graced Australian screens on the 2023 season of The Voice, where she made it all the way to the top 12 of the iconic competition.

Calista feels extremely honoured to be making her Australian debut with LPD productions playing one of her dream roles in a show that has inspired her for years. She would like to thank Ministry of Entertainment for their ongoing support and her beautiful tribe of friends for their unconditional love, encouragement, and guidance.
