The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice can be seen at Derby Theatre from October 31-November 22.

This is an Olivier award-winning comedy by Jim Cartwright and is being directed by Sarah Brigham, artistic director at Derby Theatre.

Shy northern lass LV (Little Voice) spends her time hidden away engrossed in her late father’s record collection and trying to avoid her loud blousy mother, Mari.

In her pokey bedroom, she’s hiding an astonishing talent for pitch-perfect impersonations of great divas like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Shirley Bassey.

When Mari’s latest fancy-man, talent scout Ray Say, overhears Little Voice’s extraordinary singing, he’s determined to make her a star.

But can Little Voice overcome her stage-fright and face the bright lights of the local working men’s club... let alone the West End?

Playing the central role of LV (Little Voice) is Rebecca Brierley.

Although a relative newcomer, Rebecca’s credits to date, including being a backing vocalist for Katie Melua and Alfie Boe and appearing in a production of Guys & Dolls for Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts plus performing as a soloist in a concert at the London Palladium, are all great musical experiences to help her prepare and perform the role of Little Voice.

Rebecca not only has an amazing voice, but she is able to impersonate and sing like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Shirley Bassey, all essential for this amazing role.

Tracy Brabin will play LV’s brash and abusive mother, Mari.

Tickets are £10-£22.50, concessions are £10.50-£20.50. Call the box office on 01332 593939 or go online at
