'Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly' show hits Sydney
14 Jul 2014

A family-friendly piece of theatre about a girl who loves singing (often not very well) is due to hit the stage in Sydney next month.

The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly is being performed August 16th and 17th at the Sydney Opera House Studio.

It's the work of Theatre Lovett, an Irish theatre company, and focuses on the character of Peggy O’Hegarty who wakes up one day and discovers her town has disappeared.

It comes to Sydney as a part of the Opera House's youth-focused programme, Kids at the House.

The piece was written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, a playwright from Tasmania. It first appeared at children's cultural centre The Ark in Ireland, and has since toured around both Ireland and the UK, as well as the United States.

Bridgette Van Leuven, head of children, families and education for the Opera House, has said of the show: "Embracing the big questions of young children but never condescending them, The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly tackles universal themes of love, loss, family and home."

In the show, the main character's world is first shown as a big box made of wood, and as the adventure goes on this is unpacked, according to the Opera House.

Louis Lovett plays every character in the piece, which includes audience interaction. Tickets are priced at $30 Australian, plus a booking fee.

Another well-known landmark you may want to visit when you head to the famed Australian city is the Museum of Sydney.

Among other attractions, the museum is currently presenting a temporary exhibition called Iconic Australian Houses, which will remain in place until August 17th this year. Another current show, being displayed until October 12th, is called Celestial City: Sydney's Chinese Story.

You can find the museum open every day throughout the week, and it's just one example of a great range of museums in the city.ADNFCR-408-ID-801735162-ADNFCR
