LTC-The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

 Little Theatre Company presents

 THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE

by Jim Cartwright

 

Mari’s daughter is different. Never leaves the house, doesn’t like the men her mother brings home and would rather stay in her room with only her record collection for company.

 But she can sing! It’s the kind of voice that gives you goose bumps. And when you can sing, you can do anything…

 An award-winning play, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is a heart-warming and down-to-earth comedy which was subsequently made into a much celebrated film which made a star of Jane Horrocks and featured Michael Caine and Brenda Blethyn.

 LTC is delighted to feature the talents of Sophie Towns as LV.

Mellows – A Chorus Line

The Mellow Dramatics are pleased to announce their next production: ‘A Chorus Line’ which is coming to Burton on Trent from 15th – 19th May 2012. The 1975 musical is about a group of hopeful dancers auditioning for a place in a Broadway show.

 The show is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical. In between learning audition moves, they each reveal their most personal stories in
interviews with the director, Zach.
Through song, monologue and dance the audience glimpse into the personalities of the performers as they describe events in their lives that have made them who they are today, and their decision to become dancers.

 But which 8 dancers have done enough to convince Zach that they belong?
