ANNIE GET YOUR GUN

“…Renee Anderson is tender and tough, ardent and amorous. Her delivery and manner of character interpretation, in moving from illiterate country girl and sharpshooter to world traveler and performer, is a highlight of the show.”

Patrick B. McGuigan, The City Sentinel

“The incomparable cast features Renee Anderson, high-spirited, in beautiful voice, and styled to look like an exact match for Annie Oakley…Anderson is our Oklahoma answer to Broadway stardom. She’s the reason to see any production she is in, and she sells tickets. In some thirty years of my reviewing jobs and watching various casts perform “Annie Get Your Gun” all across the country, Anderson’s vision of Annie Oakley is the most authentic.”

THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL

“What this production has going for it is the excellent Renee Anderson as Norbert’s wife, Jeannie. A wonderful singer and fine actor, Anderson, a knockout earlier this year in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” is one of our most reliable and solid theater artists.”

Larry Laneer, Oklahoma Gazette

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH

“Matt Brown’s and Renee Anderson’s vocal performances are unparalleled. Their voices will pierce you to your core and thaw your frozen heart.”

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW

“Oklahoma City native Renee Anderson plays the Usherette for your science fiction double feature….

Anderson is eerily inviting as both the Usherette and maid Magenta. Her dark, sultry voice and blazing magenta spiky hair play nicely.”

Johnnie-Margaret McConnell, The Norman Transcript

“Renee Anderson, who opens the show in an usherette costume and sings about the musical, doubles as Magenta and she’s just great. Strong voice, appropriate attitude.”

Joan Gilmore, The Journal Record

ZOMBIE PROM

“Renee Anderson nearly stole the show as Miss Delilah Strict, the school principal who seemed as hard as the straight edge she wielded like a baton to keep her unruly students in line. Wearing a severe gray dress, topped with an anomalous, dyed-red, stylized hairdo (or wig), Anderson made her character a person you loved to hate.”

John Brandenburg, The Oklahoman

The 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE

“Renee Anderson had the right, slightly forced charisma as Rona Lisa Perretti, a realtor clinging, in her vocal numbers, to her favorite “moments” in the annual bee she once won.”

John Brandenburg, The Oklahoman

PETER PAN

“Anderson’s vocals are astounding as she captures the little boy in all of us with every aspect of her talent. Her voice soars as well as her body.”

Elizabeth Hurd, The Oklahoman

SEUSSICAL, THE MUSICAL

“The stand-out performances and performers who hold the show together and make it zesty include ….. and Renee Anderson as the Sour Kangaroo, who earlier this year performed a fine Peter Pan at the Pollard, scored recently at the Carpenter in “Debbie Does Dallas,” and who can sell a song like few others,…”
