The Rise And Fall of Little Voice new UK tour announced with Christina Bianco, Shobna Gulati and Ian Kelsey

A brand new production of The Rise And Fall of Little Voice is to tour the UK in 2022.

Producers Katy Lipson and Glass Half Full Productions will present the Jim Cartwright’s The Rise And Fall of Little Voice directed by Bronagh Lagan (Cruise, West End).

Christina Bianco (Forbidden Broadway, Funny Girl) will star in the title role of LV with Shobna Gulati (Everyone’s Talking About Jamie, Coronation Street) playing Mari Hoff and Ian Kelsey (Emmerdale, Casualty, Coronation Street) playing Ray Say.

Full casting and creative is to be confirmed.

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice will open in Southampton on 23 March 2022 and tour to The Capitol Horsham, Exeter Northcott, Malvern Theatres, Theatre Royal Brighton, Liverpool Playhouse, Theatre Royal Wakefield, Crewe Lyceum Theatre, The Lowry Salford, Blackpool Grand, Mercury Theatre Colchester, Richmond Theatre and York Theatre Royal.

Further dates are to be confirmed.

Meet Little Voice and Mari Hoff. A mother and daughter central to the heart of this Northern fairy-tale, but as far apart in character as can be. Left to her own devices, Little Voice starts to embody the famous divas she plays on repeat, from Judy Garland to Shirley Bassey, and becomes an overnight sensation.

With humour, heart and countless powerhouse ballads all performed live on stage, Cartwright’s timeless and iconic tale explores the highs and the lows of small-town dreams, family rivalry and finding your voice in a noisy world.
