Annabel began performing with Theatre Bugs at the age of four and continued to do so for ten further years. Highlights include playing the lead role in Annie and the ‘White Rabbit’ in Alice in Wonderland. During her time at Loreto College, Annabel was heavily involved in the Performing Arts: as a lead vocalist and bass guitarist in senior ensembles and bands. Annabel played the lead role of ‘Munkustrap’ in the college’s production of Cats in 2014 and was a grand finalist in the Search for a Star competition. She was the winning Performing Arts Captain for the 2016 Loreto Performing Arts Festival, and was awarded both Leadership and Service Awards for this role.
After finishing Year 12 in 2016, she was awarded a prestigious Governor’s Commendation Award for Outstanding Achievement in SACE. Annabel has been heavily involved with Promise Adelaide: performing as a soloist in Out of the Blue, and on 891 ABC Radio, and has subsequently been on the Production Team for their 2017 and 2018 Fringe seasons. Annabel has also played lead roles of ‘Belle’ in Beauty and the Beast and ‘Dionne’ in Hair at the Pelican Productions Music Theatre Camps. She also played the lead role of ‘Patrice’ in Adelaide Youth Theatre’s 13 the Musical in March 2017.
Annabel currently studies a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Adelaide and loves the way that Theatre Bugs provides her with an outlet to be creative and have fun when she is not hitting the books!
