LOCAL residents will be in for a treat from this week when Pemads brings its newest production, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, to the stage.

The play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger-than-life, out-of-control mother, Mari.

Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas, including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. When Mari starts dating small-time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he’s her last chance for a better life.

When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she’s his ticket to the big time, but Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved.

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice will run at the Pemads Little Theatre from today, August 15 to August 25.

Nightly shows will take place at 19:30, except on August 20 when there won’t be a show. There will also be a matinée performance on August 19 at 14:30.

Tickets at R80 per person are available from Computicket.
