A SHOREHAM head teacher is taking a starring role in the Southwick Players’ latest production.
Bob Woodman, head teacher at Shoreham Beach Primary School in Shingle Road, Shoreham, will be playing Sadie in the group’s December production of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.
Bob, who lives in Littlehampton, has been involved in stage productions since she was at secondary school has appeared with various theatre companies up and down the south coast and is also recognised as a director. She particularly enjoys performing in musical productions and most recently played Vicky Nicholls in Worthing Musical Theatre Company’s production of The Full Monty.
Her character, Sadie, is the long-suffering next-door neighbour of Mari, Little Voice’s mother, who is desperately trying to cling onto her waning youth and beauty. Sadie becomes the butt of many of Mari’s jokes but always provides a willing audience for her stories.
The play tells the story of the painfully shy Little Voice (LV) who, following the death of her father, withdraws into the world she shared with him, a world in which the great divas wear their hearts on their sleeves, singing out their emotions.
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, written by Jim Cartwright and directed by Tony Bright, will run from December 9 to December 12, at 7.30pm, at The Barn Theatre (at Southwick Community Centre), Southwick Street, Southwick. Tickets, costing £11 are available from the box office on 01273 597094 or online at www.southwickplayers.org.uk
