Little Voice spends her days alone in her bedroom. Surrounded by her late father’s records she escapes to the extraordinary voices of Judy Garland, Billie Holiday and breathless tones of Marilyn Monroe. As her blowsy mother Mari shrieks and shouts her way around the house LV hears her heroines; matching them note for note, she sings… and her world is transformed.

When local talent agent Ray Say, Mari’s latest boyfriend, overhears her he sees a way out; this is his chance for the high-life, his road to the showbiz big-time. All he has to do is find a way to take her with him. Persuaded by the tacky scout, pushed by an overbearing mother, a nervous Little Voice blasts out Bassey, but will she ever have the courage to find her own voice?

Featuring unforgettable renditions of the following legendary songs:

Big Spender
Trolley Song
Happy Birthday
I (Who Have Nothing)
