Ahead of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice‘s opening tomorrow night (11 July 2018) at the Barn Theatre in Cirencester, you’ve got to check out our gallery of production photos of the cast in action. These clearly show why Barn Theatre productions really are #theatreworthtravellingfor. Time to get booking!
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, directed by Michael Strassen, has a strictly limited season at the recently opened 200-seat Cotswolds venue from 7 July to 4 August 2018, with a press night on 11 July and a post-show talk chaired by MyTheatreMates co-founder Terri Paddock on Friday 20 July.
Sarah Louise Hughes takes the title role of Little Voice, in the heart-warming story of a reclusive Northern girl-next-door whose remarkable ability to impersonate the great singers provides her with an opportunity to transcend her tragically unappealing domestic life. But pushed by a foul-mouthed, hard-drinking mother and coaxed into the limelight by her mother’s latest talent agent boyfriend, timid ‘Little Voice’ will need to conquer more than just stage-fright if she is to find her own voice in the world.
In our recent interview, director Michael Strassen explained that he wanted to revive Jim Cartwright‘s 1992 modern British classic Little Voice at the new Cirencester destination because “The Barn’s audience are listeners; what a gift.”
Sarah Louise Hughes is joined in the cast by Gillian McCafferty (as LV’s mother Mari Hoff), Gary Richards (as Ray), Hadley Brown (Billy), Larissa Hunter (Sadie) and Stephen Omer (Phone Man/Mr Boo). The production is designed by Christina Cammarota, with sound by Chris Cleal and lighting by Sam Tanner. It’s produced for the Barn by Jamie Chapman Dixon.
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice runs 7 July to 4 August 2018 at The Barn, 5 Beeches Road, Cirencester GL7 1BN. Performances are Mondays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, with Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £14-£30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
