They Called Her Vivaldi

Edward M. Haberdasher has crafted very peculiar earmuffs for his very particular daughter Cecilia Maria. (The earmuffs come with three settings: Snowflake, Tinkly Bells and, for hardcore noise-prevention scenarios, Cheesegrater). Don’t shout about it but Cecilia Maria thinks they make her look fascinating and has whispered her thanks. This is an upbeat comedy-adventure about a sensitive musical-prodigy making a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world.

Starring Genevieve Hulme Beaman and Louis Lovett.

“With true comic spirit, Theatre Lovett defies all age groupings to appeal to everybody.”
The Irish Independent

For ages 7 plus.
