Quote from the producer, Thomas Attwood “Su Pollard was a delight to work with and brought an infectious energy into the rehearsal room. I’m very sorry that we cannot share this hard work with our audiences and wish her well. I am absolutely thrilled to welcome Sarah Redmond into our little company. Sarah’s huge experience as a performer and director in the West End makes her a wonderful addition to the 40th Anniversary production”
