Miss Fletcher Sing the Blues (New Zealand)
1 Oct 2018 - 25 Dec 2020
She’s down, she cares and she is ready to tackle the issues. The big issues. The world issues.
All the issues.
Hayley Sproull (Jono and Ben, Funny Girls) presents Miss Fletcher Sings the Blues; a musical comedy with educational benefits. The show follows a young teacher trying to inspire a worldly opinion (her worldly opinion) in a class of unsuspecting developing young men (the audience). In teaching them about the power of music, she hopes to give them a life long tool for self-expression.
One woman; eyes closed, breathy, passionate. One piano; proud, tuned, supple.
