.Attitude: Role Models: Simon Marks Meets Su Pollard
Saturday 30th October, 2010 Magazines
Su is featured in the latest issue (November 2010, No. 198) of 'Attitude' magazine, "The Role Models Issue".

Su Pollard: The Camp Comic

In 1984, when I was eight, I became obsessed with Peggy Ollerenshaw from Hi-de-Hi!, one of the most successful - and campest sitcoms of all time. Set in Maplins holiday camp, Peggy was the loveable chalet maid desperate to become a 'Yellow Coat' - a member of the entertainment team. She was a klutz, a loveable loser; enthusiastic but over the top; well-meaning but misunderstood. She longed for acceptance but never quite made it. She was always the outsider looking in not able to be part of the gang and, wouldn't you know it, as a gay kid I completely related to her.

.Alex Grace Photo: Role Models: Holly Johnson & Su Pollard
Saturday 30th October, 2010 Press Clips
Photographer Alex Grace has published a blog recounting her recent photo shoots with Su, and Holly Johnson, for the latest issue of 'Attitude' magazine, and their "Role Models" special feature.

I was then sent to photograph English comedy actress Su Pollard, of 'Hi-di-Hi' and 'You Rang, M'Lord' fame, at The Hexagon Theatre in Reading (also known affectionately as 'dreading' to Su ..... am i allowed to say that?!).

At the time Su was performing in 'Annie' which I believe is now touring the country. Su was a riot; eccentric and entertaining as ever and very easy to shoot. It was fun listening to her stories and also hearing about Simon Marks' (the journalist) childhood obsession with 'Hi-di-Hi'.

.The Sentinel: Su Is Wicked As Cruel Miss
Saturday 30th October, 2010 Press Clips
A classic tale is being portrayed at a city theatre this week.

Musical Annie, starring Su Pollard and David McAlister, is running at The Regent theatre until Saturday.

The play tells the story of little Annie, a gutsy 11-year-old orphan who, after being left on the doorsteps of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel and crooked Miss Hannigan, is determined to find her real parents.

The musical, which has previously won nine Tony Awards, has one of Broadway's most memorable scores including It's A Hard Knock Life, Easy Street, NYC and Tomorrow.

Tickets for Annie at The Regent theatre can be booked by calling the box office on 0844 871 7649.
.Plymouth Herald: Su's On Easy Street As A Whisky-Soaked Harridan In Annie
Saturday 30th October, 2010 Interview
A brief interview with Su, from yesterday's 'Plymouth Herald'.

Family musical Annie has been delighting audiences for more than three decades. The story of Annie's adventures from Miss Hannigan's orphanage to the luxurious home of Oliver Warbucks, has a feelgood charm and hit songs like It's A Hard Knock Life, Easy Street and, of course, Tomorrow.

Taking on the role of whisky-soaked harridan Miss Hannigan at the Hall for Cornwall next week is Su Pollard.

"She's a fantastic character – I love her," says Su. "I try and get across the frustration of her life. She gets badgered and badgered and badgered by these horrible, snotty-nosed orphans and at the end of the show she gets carted off in a strait jacket.

This is the fourth time Su has donned the wonky wig and laddered tights to play the hard-drinking lush, and she has earned rave reviews for her warts-and-all portrayal.

.Cornish Guardian/West Morning News/The Cornishman: Trewhela's Tips
Saturday 30th October, 2010 Press Clips
It's all about Hallowe'en this week – you can plan your mischievous family fun in the Days Out and Eating Out sections.

One particular horror, of the ginger variety, comes to the Hall for Cornwall on Monday for a week's run. Annie, the curly-haired moppet who will either melt your heart or have you gnashing your teeth monstrously, stars Su Pollard as gin-soaked Miss Hannigan, alongside a talented 40-strong cast.

The kids will love it and with such memorable songs as Easy Street, Tomorrow and Hard Knock Life – beloved of Jay-Z and X Factor's idea of "street", Cher – this should be a feast for musical theatre fans.

Tickets are priced 10 to 26.50 and performances are at 7.30pm with 2.30pm matinees on Wednesday and Saturday. Head to

.Annie 2010/11: The Sentinel Review
Thursday 28th October, 2010 Theatre Review
Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent
By Liz Rowley


In a recent interview with The Sentinel, Su Pollard showed sympathy for Miss Hannigan; the mean-spirited matron she plays in hit musical Annie.

"I always like to think that Miss Hannigan isn't out and out evil. She's had a terribly frustrating life…all she wants is a bloke."

I'm not sure that sympathy spilled out to the audience at The Regent Theatre on Tuesday night, but one thing's for certain, Pollard got it just right.

Recognised for her role as chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw in Hi-de-Hi, the vibrant star is also a credited stage performer. Many will have seen her bring down the house during her rendition of You're My World in 60s musical Shout! Those who hadn't, however, would surely admit to the captivating quality she brought to the stage during the opening of Annie's five-night stay in the Potteries.

.Runcorn & Widnes Weekly: Su Pollard Stars in Annie at The Regent Theatre
Thursday 28th October, 2010 Interview
Another new interview from Su, published yesterday. This one is syndicated to a number of publications including the 'Runcorn & Widnes Weekly'.

National treasure Su Pollard talks to Will Harris about her role in the hit musical Annie

They say in showbusiness you should never work with children or animals – Su Pollard is doing both.

The 60-year-old is considered something of a British gem, having lent her eccentric style and distinctive voice to comedy characters on stage and screen for the past 35 years.

She is currently at the Regent Theatre in Hanley, starring as the dastardly Miss Hannigan in Annie until the end of the week – a role in which she continues to revel in her fourth tour.

“When they first offered me the role of Miss Hannigan I was delighted,” she said.

“It was a part I’d always wanted to play since seeing Sheila Hancock do it years ago. I was too young to do it then, but it’s great fun playing her, and she’s got some great numbers too.

.BBC Radio Stoke: The Afternoon Show: Su Interview

Su chatted with Amy about Annie, what a great part Miss Hannigan is, enjoying the immediacy of theatre and a live audience, pre-show nerves, the lasting legacy of Hi-de-Hi!, presenting Songs of Praise and more.

The full show is available to listen to at BBC iPlayer, with Su appearing approximately 1hr 29mins into the show, and the interview runs for around 20 minutes, including a break for news, travel and Lionel Richie!! This is available at iPlayer until Tuesday 2nd November.

.The Sentinel: Irrepressibly Cheerful Su Finds Good In Everyone For Annie Production
Friday 22nd October, 2010 Interview
A new interview with Su, published in 'The Sentinel' today. Annie opens at the Regent Theatre, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent this Tuesday.

Only Su Pollard could find it within her heart to defend the evil Miss Hannigan.

As the manager of the Depression-era children's home where red-headed orphan Annie lives, Hannigan is the fearsome tyrant who refuses to extend the hand of kindness to her vulnerable young charges.

But Su – as bubbly and energetic in real life as her on-stage and screen persona – is determined to restore the mean-spirited matron's reputation.

"I always like to think that Miss Hannigan isn't out and out evil," says Su, somewhat ironically. "She's had a terribly frustrating life. Think about it. She never meets any grown-ups apart from the laundry man who comes once a month.

"Then she's surrounded by these horrible children who dangle dead mice in front of her. She has looked after those kids and it's all she's had in her life for 30 years. I mean that's why she's turned to the drink."

On Tuesday Su makes her return to The Regent Theatre, with Annie – she last appeared at the Hanley venue in 2008, for 60s tribute show Shout.

.Nottingham Evening Post: Unforgettable Scenes Of City's Funny Girl
Friday 22nd October, 2010 • Thanks to Paula Press Clips
The 'Nottingham Evening Post' published an interesting article last weekend. Cassandra Stone recalls her, and Su's, early years in Nottingham

Cassandra Stone, now company secretary of the Nottingham Arts Theatre, has contributed so much to the theatre over many years.

She freely admits she has done just about everything: acting, singing, wardrobe, ticket sales, coffee bar etc.

She and her sister, Julia Hull, who sang with the theatre's opera group, made their first stage appearances at St Jude's Church, Mapperley, when Cassandra was about six. It was in their genes. Grandmother had been on stage at the Nottingham Hippodrome and her grandfather had also briefly been an actor.

Nothing - except courage - could have prepared Cassandra for one of her recent and memorable roles at the theatre.... as the Stripper in The Graduate, complete with tassles!

In a fond and funny look back at a memorable time at the theatre, in shows with Su Pollard, Cassandra recalls: "My only claim to fame is that I was behind Su Pollard in the 'Hup, two, three, four' cross by the nurses in the 1960s production of South Pacific.

.Annie 2010/11: News Shopper Review
Thursday 21st October, 2010 Theatre Review
The Churchill Theatre, Bromley
By Matthew Jenkin


Lydia Tunstall is delightful in the title role, belting out the show’s anthem Tomorrow with an infectious energy and handling the snappy dialogue with ease.

David McAlister as “Daddy” Warbucks is a little wobbly at times when singing his numbers, but makes up for it with his formidable stage presence.

However, Su Pollard as the alcoholic spinster/slave driver Hannigan steals every scene she is in with perfect comic timing and a powerful set of pipes to match.

Annie’s message of unshakeable hope in the face of adversity may be hard to swallow for many adults but I defy anyone to hate the show’s irresistibly upbeat songs, charming cast and shamelessly feel-good story.

.Annie 2010/11: Entertainment Focus Review
Thursday 21st October, 2010 Theatre Review
The Churchill Theatre, Bromley
By Greg Jameson


The heart-warming family musical about a little orphan girl who just wants to be loved is currently touring, and playing at the Bromley Churchill Theatre until Saturday 23rd October...

...Placing a child at the centre of the story is always a risk, as they have to be solid and believable for the production to work. Thankfully the young actors playing Annie and the other orphans are excellent, with a strong professional work ethic that benefits some well-choreographed dance routines. They open the show with a song and dance before the anticipated entrance of Su Pollard as the inebriated old dragon in charge of the orphans, which is a good way of helping the children in the audience to identify with the world of the story straight away.

.Annie 2010/11: County Times Review
Friday 15th October, 2010 Theatre Review
Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury
By Mark Lingard


Talented cast put on a stunning show for Annie

Without meaning to turn this into a musical version of Scary Movie, musicals seem to follow a formula. Bit of singing and dancing, things threaten to go wrong, and a happy ending.

Okay, it can’t be fitted to all musicals, but it’s a formula that tends to work – and Annie is no exception, simply oozing feelgood factor.

Now if ever there was someone born to play a particular role, it was evident on stage here. Su Pollard, of Hi-de-Hi fame, was absolutely fantastic.

It’s always a shame to single out a particular actor or actress, but she was terrific as the drunken money-grabbing child-hating orphanage boss with no absolutely no heart.

.101 Forgotten Pop Hits Of The 1980s
Friday 15th October, 2010 Books
Starting Together' is included in Nick Parkhouse's excellent book '100 Forgotten Pop Hits of the 1980s', published in May 2010.

It started as a conversation in a London pub in early 2008. Discussing great pop records of the 1980s, a man called Adrian – who I only ever met on that one occasion – told me I was like ‘the Louis Theroux of 80s pop music’...

...And, 90,000 words (give or take) later, and two and a bit years work, my ‘labour of love’ (if you’ll excuse the 80s based pun) 101 Forgotten Pop Hits of the 1980s is now available in paperback.

.Bruce James Productions: Su, Suzette & Don't Dress For Dinner
Friday 15th October, 2010 Press Clips
Bruce James Productions are currently auditioning for the role of Suzette for their forthcoming production of Don't Dress For Dinner.

Suzette is a role that Su made her own during a West End production and UK tour in the 1990's. In 2008 Su recalled: "My favourite role was in a French farce called Don’t Dress For Dinner, with lovely Simon Cadell, which ran in the West End for a year and we toured it for years afterwards."

The role of 'Suzette' is a very important one to the success of the comedy as the character has to be in complete contrast to the other two women in the piece, namely 'Jacquleine' the wife and 'Suzanne' the mistress and model. We were looking for someone who was a bit quirky and not necessarily, what you would call, an average shape or height so as to accentuate the differences between the three female parts. In the original West End production the role of 'Suzette' was played by Su Pollard, who I suggest would have been perfect in the part. Not that we were necessarily looking for someone to be Su Pollard, rather someone who would allow us to achieve a balance with the two already cast actresses.

.News Shopper: Interview: Su Pollard
Thursday 14th October, 2010 Interview
Su Pollard on Annie and paving the way for Lady Gaga with a vegetable dress

Matthew Jenkin talks to the irrepressible Su Pollard about returning to her role as Miss Hannigan in Annie, why she's the original Lady Gaga and keeping her former Rear of the Year pert.

Question: You’re starring as Miss Hannigan in Annie at The Churchill Theatre in Bromley next week. She's a character you've played before. What’s brought you back to the role?

Su Pollard: Ooh yes I love it. There’s everything you could really want in this role. You get to do a nice bit of acting, because it’s quite a meaty role and you get to have a lot of fun which comes out of her antics where she’s desperate for male attention.

She’s surrounded by these awful, awful orphans who are just terrible to her. They keep waking her up and Annie keeps trying to escape. So a lot of the humour comes out of her frustration. She also gets a couple of good numbers, so I really relish doing the role, it’s great.

.Suite 101: "Oh Doctor Beeching!": Interview with Richard Spendlove
Thursday 14th October, 2010 Interview
'Suite101.com' interviewed, writer of Oh Doctor Beeching!, Richard Spendlove last month.

The co-creator of the fondly-remembered British sitcom talks to Suite101 about the origins of the series and the inspiration behind it.

Writer and broadcaster, Richard Spendlove, worked for British Rail for the first 35 years of his career, holding a variety of positions within the company, including Regional Inspector - a role he would later play on TV - before opting to take early retirement at the age of 50 in 1989.

Having become completely disillusioned with the whole organisation - an organisation that he says had been in steady decline ever since Doctor Beeching began closing down smaller railway stations in the 1960s, in an unrelenting purge that became known as "The Beeching Axe" - Richard decided to devote his time to his other great passion: broadcasting.

.Annie 2010/11: Seen Magazine Review
Thursday 14th October, 2010 Theatre Review
Floral Pavilion Theatre, Wirral
By Michael Dwyer


The word camp is a generally over used word however when describing the production of Annie currently playing at the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton this is the only word that springs to mind! The lavish sets, which include a staircase any showgirl would be proud of, create a spectacular backdrop for the exceptionally versatile and talented performers...

...However the star of the show without a doubt is Su Pollard. She enters the stage in flurry of energy that although hysterical and full of classic “Su” moments is also poignant and endearing. What more can be said about Ms Pollard, she is a truly British institution and her performance brings a whole new meaning the word camp making Annie a must see for every age group.
