Streaming On Demand November 25 – December 18, 2024  |  Streaming Event The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly Streaming Performances for Schools

Event Description

Sometimes it takes a girl-sized human to solve an adult-sized problem. Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And all the 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, and the jobs stop coming, and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived... and everyone in her city is gone!  

Ingenious performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure that crosses snowy lands and wild seas. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats and the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key.  

Recommended for grades: 1-6
