Nyssa's family owns a Dairy Farm on Cundle Plains, which is east of Kundle Kundle, round the corner from Cundle Flat near Cundle Town (but thats obvious). Growing up, there wasn't much to do, except chat to the cows and listen to her mother sing Brahms, so it's no wonder she always dreamt of being an opera singer.
Singing in the paddocks, the cows were an excellent audience until one day, Nyssa decided she had built up enough confidence to "moove" to the big smoke and chase her dreams. Instead however, she discovers pop music, karaoke, Beyoncè and a whole new world of dreams she never knew existed.
With the help of some encouraging moo's from her audience members, our Cabaret Cowgirl discovers that its OK to be more than just one thing and it might be possible... just maybe... for more than one of her dreams to come true.
