A Local Mum, Scottish born Ami’s desire for the stage began at the tender age of 3. At the age of 7 Ami played the part of Tessie in the national tour of the musical 'Annie' gaining her Equity membership at a very young age.
She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School full time for 5 years and graduated with "The Most Promising Musical Student" award. Whilst at the school her television appearances and stage performances were varied.
Ami's career went in several directions after leaving Sylvia's. She spent time on the Cabaret circuit developing her unique style. Ami took a slight change in direction when she began writing, arranging and performing with a Rock/Pop band 'COAST' performing in some of London's more eclectic venues, whilst continuing her stage work doing fringe performances.
Ami had a 5 year residency on Dinner Cruise boats on the RiverThames singing a Classic Jazz and Dance repertoire.
For the last 12 years she has been performing across the Country as the only female civilian singer for the British Army Bands. Namely the 'Household Divisions Big Band', 'The Grenadier Guards Big Band', 'The Welsh Guards Dance Band' and 'The Army Big Band'. With these brilliant bands, she has been lucky to perform with some of the best musicians in the British Army at some amazing venues. Including performing at Windsor Castle with the Grenadier Guards Big Band in the presence of HRH The Queen and HRH Prince Philip. She was also thrilled to perform at 10 Downing Street for the then Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Locally, Ami has received top billing when appearing as the solo vocalist at a series of sell out Help-for-Heroes concerts held at the Cliffs Pavillion,Southend. In the run up to these Ami was invited into Southend Radio for an interview with Tracey Cooper on her Sunday Show.
Ami is thrilled to successfully bring Quackers to local Events held throughout Leigh and for the Community Centre and Leigh Town Council and hopes to do more local events in the future.
She continues to perform under her Maiden name Ami Anders, all over the country with her band The Cover Cartel.
She was very proud to teach Singing and Drama at Stagecoach, Pauline Quirke Academy and TheatreTrain. These roles and her Theatre School training and experience gave her the drive to start TheatricalLeigh, a follow on for her young Quackers to learn the basics of Perfoming Arts.
Perfoming in two Local Charity Pantomines has reignited her love of performing and will be heading home to the Edinburgh Festival this summer as Jeannie in a play called 'Mercy' written by her good friend Wendy Morgan.
After having two children of her own Ami decided that she would combine her love of music and production alongside working with children and Quackers born!
