Colette Mann

Colette Mann


Colette Mann is an Australian actress, singer, choreographer and author/writer. She has played bartender Sheila Canning in Neighbours since 2012, and is also known for playing the role of Doreen Burns (née Anderson) in the Australian series Prisoner. Mann has also appeared in The Flying Doctors and Blue Heelers, and the 2000 film The Dish. She has written two books and had a column in New Idea magazine.

Mann played the role of Buttercup in Opera Australia’s acclaimed production of HMS Pinafore by Gilbert and Sullivan in 2005. Her portrayal of the “bumboat woman” was contrary to most performances of this role – her singing voice was more coarse than most contraltos or mezzo-sopranos who tackle this role. This production is available on DVD. Mann also appeared on stage as Shirley, the battleaxe owner of Broken Hill pub, in Priscilla Queen of the Desert – the Musical in 2010.
