(A Doris Day Special, Legendary Divas, Bombshells)
A truly astonishing acting and singing tour-de-force.”

Everyone has a story…..Award-winning actress and singer Ali Harper is returning in this critically-acclaimed one-woman play.
Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas touch the lives of five every-day women, resulting in stories of life-changing encounters.
The singer has her story and the listener hers, and should these touch each other, there can be magic.
A COURT THEATRE PRODUCTION
Directed by Ross Gumbley
Musical Direction by Richard Marrett“
Profound, ironical, funny, moving and ultimately astonishing, Songs for Nobodies is outstanding entertainment.” – Manawatu Standard“…
in this production we are transfixed by a performer at her peak. In fact she is so good at times, I hardly recognise her – she has become the alter egos she represents.” – Theatreview NZ
