York Theatre Royal's Travelling Pantomime, 2020
"Soden’s rapping, funky, blue and pink-haired Fairy is more likely to hit the bass line than wave a wand, as flashy as her lit-up boots."-
"Anna Soden’s fabulous Fairy entertained us with her rhyming raps, as well as playing a variety of instruments live"
Heaven's Gate Tour, 2020
"Anna Soden is Tinaodie, a loveable Baldrick-level imbecile who takes credit for much of the silly humour on offer here. Soden’s role is perhaps the most demanding too in that she must strike a balance between being the endearing twit and the tragic fool who has no knowledge of the wrongs inflicted upon them. "
Sleeping Beauty- Liverpool Everyman, 2019-2020
"Anna Soden is practically perfect in every way"- The Stage

"Anna Soden and Hannah Davis supporting on drums, guitar and keyboards... satirising posh flatmates, possessive boyfriends and loudmouth agents, it survives on strong musical arrangements, good humour and quirky charm. - The Guardian
"(Anna Soden and Hannah Davies are) talented and impressive, as they weave in and out of the narrative, playing as many characters as they do instruments"- Edfest Magazine
