Half A Sixpence is a production with one of the most talented casts I’ve seen to grace the stage, the performance boasts immense heart and phenomenal musical numbers. I spoke to Devon-Elise Johnson who plays Ann Pornick, the gutsy love interest in the charismatic musical.
Devon-Elise gives such a strong performance of Ann because of her connection to the character. When she found out she was up for the role, she downloaded the film straight away, “I watched Julia Foster do it and I just sort of knew it and thought – that’s me,” she said. “It sounds weird, because she isn’t like your normal romantic lead, she is feisty and has a bit of ball behind her, and I think that is what I like about her, I really connected with that.”
