I love community theatre, especially when all the players are so passionate about their roles. Being familiar with the story from the pre-2000 film, I was pleasantly surprised how well this translated to small stage. The staging was creative,...continued

__The Rise and Fall of Little Voice __won the Laurence Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for “Best New Comedy” when it first appeared in London in 1992.

At the center of the play is the virtuosic, demanding role of Little Voice, which requires a very young actress to navigate the powerhouse stylings of Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday, and more. ArtsWest is thrilled to have found Myrna Conn, an 18 year-old who came up through the theater’s Musical Education program. Myrna’s real life mother, Suzy Conn (a professional composer and lyricist), has composed an original song, “My Song” for Little Voice’s finale. 

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is directed by ArtsWest Artistic Director Christopher Zinovitch; costumes by Stacey Derek (Amy’s View); set and props designed by Jill Beasley; lighting by Josh Randall; sound design by Johanna Melamed (All Through the Night); musical director, Kim Dare (Evil Dead: The Musical). Featuring Myrna Conn as Little Voice, Peggy Gannon as Mari Hoff; Patricia Haines-Ainsworth, Jesse Smith, Daniel Reaume, and Travis Tingvall round out the cast.

This play is recommended for ages 16 and older.
