The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly by Finegan Kruckemeyer

Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers who squeeze foxes into boxes and bikes into brown paper bags. In this fun-filled one-man show, ingenious Irish actor Louis Lovett takes the audience on an adventure through snowy lands and wild seas after Peggy discovers everyone in her city is gone. As she 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 ages 7+.
