Aaron Lucas is starring in the new Australian play “Flood” which opens 8 November at the Old 505 Theatre in Newtown (Sydney).
His great grandfather Otto Lucas came over from Germany with a group of other Liberal Jews and founded the Temple Emanuel in Woollahra.
His grandfather Frank was then the first person to have a Bar Mitzvah there.
Then, with Aaron’s great uncle Leo Port (who was the Lord Mayor of Sydney at the time) Frank founded North Shore Temple Emanuel in Chatswood, which is where both Aaron and his (late) father had their barmitzvah.
Aaron grew up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in Clontarf, learnt to surf at Manly Beach and Curl Curl and worked his first job in Manly Corso.
His sister, Bec Lucas, began the Beach Walk for Brain Cancer in memory of their dad Tony Lucas who died when Aaron was just 16. The walk is in Manly and happens every year with a couple of thousand people walking from Manly to Curl Curl and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Brain Cancer research.
Aaron is a graduate of the University of Wollongong with a Bachelor’s Degree in Performance.
