Chris comes from Kent in the UK. After graduating from Performers College in 2012 with a National Diploma in Musical Theatre and Dance, he has worked extensively within the performing industry, a job that has allowed him to perform to countless people across the world.
After leaving college early for his first professional job, he flew to Australia to work with Grayboy Entertainment and P&O Australia as a singer/dancer onboard the Pacific Dawn, cruising up to the Gold Coast, Port Douglas and Cairnes, as well as the Pacific Islands, New Zealand and Fiji.
On his return, he made his London debut in the UK premiere of 'Pipe Dream' by Rodgers & Hammerstein at the Union Theatre.
From here, he was cast in the roller-skating musical 'Starlight Express' in the specifically built StarlightHalle in Bochum, Germany.
In 2016, Chris flew to Miami to begin rehearsals for 'We Will Rock You', the Queen musical for Royal Caribbean, where he got to rock out every night whilst living it up in the Caribbean. Not a bad life really. That Christmas, he got to skate alongside Olympic legends, Torvill and Dean in the First Family panto spectacle, 'Cinderella'. Chris returned to We Will Rock You as a replacement the following year and also went on to perform as a Dancer/Aerialist in the original RCCL production of 'Spectra's Cabaret'.
In 2019, he was apart of the upcoming Blockbuster sequel 'The Kings Man' which will be premiering in 2021. He was later cast in 'Ghost' the musical, based on the 90's romance with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. So off to Stuttgart, Germany he went for 6 months. And then, boom. Covid hit. With everything being shut down for the forseeable future, Chris returned to his artistic side and began working as a freelance artist and illustrator to keep busy and get by. He created his art business 'Chris Connor Art', which he still continues to maintain alongside his performing career.

16 months later, he is delighted to announce that he will be part of the 2021-22 Premiere cast of Cameron Mackintosh's 'Miss Saigon' at the Raimund Theatre, Vienna.
