In theatre she starred in several long-running West End musicals including the title role in Marigold opposite Jeremy Brett (Savoy Theatre), Lulu in Give a Dog a Bone (Westminster Theatre), Hilaret in Lock Up Your Daughters (Her Majesty's Theatre), Jill in Humpty Dumpty (London Palladium), Sal in Ten Years Hard opposite David Essex (Mayfair Theatre), Hope Langdon in Something's Afoot (Ambassadors Theatre), Follies (Shaftesbury Theatre), The Chanteuse in Aspects of Love (Prince of Wales Theatre), and Madame Giry in Phantom of the Opera (Her Majesty's Theatre).
