Anna started performing at age seven in song and dance competitions.
In 1985, she received rave reviews for her performance in the title role of the musical Annie in the Welsh Premiere production of the show. This is a VERY old live recording made from side of stage during a performance. With apologies for poor quality!
By fourteen Anna made her first West End Theatre appearance with The Young Stars of Tomorrow. She performed as a solo artist before the Princess of Wales in a Royal Gala Performance at The Mermaid Theatre.
By eighteen Anna was employed by Trevor Nunn and Andrew Lloyd Webber for the German production of Starlight Express. She was the youngest cast member and covered six of the lead female roles in the show.
Two years later she re visited one of those roles, playing “Ashley-The Smoking Car” in the British production of the show at The Apollo Victoria Theatre in London’s renowned West End.
Anna would have loved to play Eponine in Les Mis but alas that was not to be. Here she is having a go! Again, it's old so quality isn't great!
