CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!!!
FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD
Based on the Picture Book by Kate Pankhurst and published by Bloomsbury
The world premiere of a brand new kickass-pirational pop musical will burst to life at MAST Mayflower Studios this Autumn 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 original and 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 and Number 1 hit songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue) adapt suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book, produced for the stage by the Company that brought you the smash hit musical ‘SIX’.
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!
