Tell us a little about your character: Sister Mary Amnesia is a character of innocence who has lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. She cannot remember her past and she approaches each day with a childlike joy. Desperately trying to remember who she is Amnesia befriends a puppet called Sister Annette.
Why are you part of WMTG?: I joined the group in 1985 to appear in Oliver. I have over the years been an active chorus member with occasional solo performances – my most memorable to date was as Daddy Warbuck’s assistant “Grace” in the musical Annie. I am thoroughly enjoying my role as Amnesia and loving the challenge of both singing and acting and the rehearsals to date have been so much fun with lots of support and laughter.
