A brand new kickass-pirational pop musical bursts into life as the Fantastically Great Women take to the stage to tell their stories.
Join our inquisitive heroine Jade as she breaks away from her class to take a peek behind the scenes at the not yet open Gallery of Greatness in the local museum. Along her journey she is surprised to meet the incredible wonder women: Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Emmeline Pankhurst to name just a few.
From explorers to artists, scientists to secret agents, hear the stories of some of history’s strongest mothers, sisters and daughters; all independent icons who really did change the world.
Celebrated dramatist Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky's Edge) and Number 1 hit songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue) adapt suffragette descendant Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book. With music by Miranda Cooper and Jennifer Decilveo (Miley Cyrus, Beth Ditto), directed by Amy Hodge (Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear, National Theatre).
FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD is an empowering new stage show which will be celebrated by anyone who is prepared to move and be moved, with characters and songs that pack a popstar punch!
Adapted from Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning book, published by Bloomsbury.
