Anna-Jane Casey (born 15 February 1972) is an English singer, dancer and actress best known for her work in musical theatre.
Casey trained at Lupino Dance School in Bury. She made her West End debut at age 16 as Rumpleteazer in Cats at New London Theatre. After two years with Cats she then went on to Children of Eden at the Prince Edward Theatre.
In 1998 Casey fulfilled a lifelong ambition by playing Anita in West Side Story, both at the Prince Edward Theatre and on the national tour. It was during this tour she met her husband, Graham MacDuff.
She appeared in the BBC Prom celebrating the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein. The concert was broadcast on the BBC on Saturday 28 August 2010.
In 2017 she recorded two songs for the album Wit & Whimsy - Songs by Alexander S. Bermange (one solo and one featuring all of the album's 23 artists), which reached No. 1 in the iTunes comedy album chart.
In March 2017 it was announced that Casey will step into the role of Mavis in Stepping Out at the Vaudeville Theatre in London after Tamzin Outhwaite, who was supposed to play the role, fractured her foot during rehearsals. Casey will play the role until Outhwaite is able to return. Her sister Natalie Casey also appears in the play.
