Children of all ages are in for a real treat at the Backstage Theatre next month, as ‘The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly’ is performed by the ingenious Louis Lovett.

Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags! They do all this while Peggy sings with the voice of an angel - a grossly unfortunate angel, who can’t sing at all! But one day, work stops working, the jobs stop coming and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived and everyone in her city has gone!

Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure, through snowy lands and wild seas. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, the audience learns about love, loss, the reassurance of goats and the courage to sing - on or off-key.

Described by the Sunday Times as “the theatrical equivalent to going to bed on Christmas Eve”, ‘The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly’ will come to the Backstage Theatre on February 24 and 25.

An evening performance for families will take place on February 24 at 7pm, while schools performances are on February 24 at 10am and February 25 at 10am and 12pm.

Tickets, costing just €5, are now available from the Backstage Theatre box office on 043 33 47888 or online from www.backstage.ie.
