When a great singer lets her voice float out over the anonymous crowd, or form the grooves of thousands of records, or flow through radios into millions of homes across the world, she makes countless unknown connections with people. The singer has her story and the listener hers, and should those stories touch each other, there can be magic. In SONGS FOR NOBODIES, we meet five unknown women who are touched by the great singers seen to be living the dream: Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas.

This one-woman powerhouse performance, starring Sheila Sharma and a live band weaves the music of the five legendary divas, throughout a mosaic of stories told by the everyday woman who had unexpected life-changing encounters with these musical icons.

We are proud and thrilled to welcome Sheila Sharma back to our stage. Sheila sang her first solo, just out of high school with First Impressions’ in the Wizard of Oz. She was part of the opening celebration of our new theatre in 1992 and came back twice more to sing in our Body and Soul Concerts.

From singing jazz on classy stages to blues in smoky bars and politically incorrect musical comedy under bright lights, Sheila’s career has spanned the gamut. Although she has performed on countless stages across BC and Alberta, she has spent the better part of the last two decades as Owner and Artistic Director of her own 200-seat musical comedy theatre venue. As the head writer and director, she penned dozens of original musicals, in which she was also a lead member of the ensemble cast. Sheila is a soulful and versatile vocalist who has been fortunate to make a living in the entertainment industry while satisfying her passion and necessity to perform. She has written, recorded and released pop music for sync licensing projects that has been released on all the major streaming platforms, and she is also an experienced Voice Artist who narrates audiobooks and produces a variety of voiceover projects from her home studio. You can currently find Sheila as a lead vocalist in the cover band Cakewalk and producing large-scale events as the Executive Director of the Hyack Festival Association in New Westminster.
