Auditions - The Rise & Fall of Little Voice

Readthrough: 4th June 2pm

Auditions Monday 12th June 7:30pm

I have been asked whether the singing voices mimicked by LV are set in stone. I am happy for any famous voice from that era (50’s and 60’s) to be used if any budding LVs find it suits their voice better.

Just a reminder the characters are:

Laura Hoff / Little Voice "LV", Mari’s daughter, painfully shy, reclusive, must be able to sing and mimic other famous voices.

Mari Hoff, LV’s mother, loud, tarty, over the hill.

Ray Say, manages third-rate acts.

Billy, young BT engineer, shy, unworldly.

Mr. Boo, cabaret club owner and acquaintance of Ray Say.

Sadie, neighbour, sad case, single and not likely to be anything else.

Phone Man, BT engineer
