THE OLIVIER award-winning comedy The Rise and Fall of Little Voice will be performed at Malvern Theatres next week.
The heart-warming tale written and directed by Jim Cartwright stars Cornonation Street's Beverley Callard alongside X-Factor runner up Ray Quinn, Joe McGann (Calendar Girls, The Upper Hand) and Jess Robinson as Little Voice.
Shy Little Voice spends most of her time hidden away with her late father’s record collection, perfecting her astonishing impersonations. Her extraordinary talent remains a secret until she is overheard by local talent scout Ray Say who sets about creating the show of the century. When the big night arrives, Ray is convinced it is his last chance for fame and fortune. But has anyone asked Little Voice what she wants?
Beverley Callard is best known as Coronation Street’s Liz McDonald, a role she played for over 21 years and In 2001 she was cast as Flo Henshaw in the popular BBC Three sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, a role she went on to play for four years.
Ray Quinn began his career in Channel 4’s Brookside playing Anthony Murray, for which he won numerous awards including Best Dramatic Performance at the Soap Awards 2002.
He is also well known as a finalist on ITV’s award-winning reality programme The X Factor in 2006, in which he came second to Leona Lewis. He has since had a number one platinum selling album Doing It My Way and his own sell-out tour as well as appearing on the X-Factor tour in 32 arena shows all over the UK.
Featuring songs from some of the world’s most iconic divas including Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Bassey and Judy Garland, this is a night of star-filled magic to remember.
