Anne's career began with the original Melbourne cast of CATS. She followed this with a repeat performance in the first Australian tour of the production before joining the German company.

She spent six successful years working in London and Germany. A SWELL PARTY marked her London West End debut when she stepped in for the leading lady on the opening night of the premiere. Due to her overwhelming success, she continued to play the role for the entire season and featured in the subsequent film of the same name. Other U.K. and European credits include lead roles in ASPECTS OF LOVE, BARNUM, CRAZY FOR YOU, ROMANCE ROMANCE, INTO THE WOODS and CLOSER THAN EVER.

After returning to Australia, Anne appeared as Irene in CRAZY FOR YOU and Elsa Schraeder in the THE SOUND OF MUSIC – both performances earning her Green Room nominations.

Anne spent nearly three years playing the lead role of Donna in the original smash hit production of MAMMA MIA! earning a Green Room Award and an invitation to play the role on London's West End.

Since then she has appeared in CLOSER THAN EVER (Adelaide Cabaret Festival), CAROUSEL (The Production Company), AUSTRALIA'S LEADING LADIES (concerts throughout Australia), MINEFIELDS AND MINISKIRTS (for the Malthouse Theatre), as the Soap Star in MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL and has been performing in cabaret with Shaun Murphy of Combo Fiasco fame.

In 2008, for The Production Company, she appeared as Meg Boyd in DAMN YANKEES and as Phyllis Stone in Stephen Sondheim's FOLLIES. She also performed the role Magenta in THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW in Melbourne, and performed in cabaret with JOHN BUCCHINO AND FRIENDS.

Most recently Anne re-created her award-winning role of Donna in the national tour of MAMMA MIA!
