Can I have your attention, please?!!!
A brand new kickass-pirational pop musical will burst into life this January as the Fantastically Great Women take to the stage to tell their stories. Be one of the first to see the follow-up show by the producer of the international hit musical Six.
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 and 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.
Original queens of SIX Christina Modestou (Carousel, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre; The Winter’s Tale, National Theatre; SIX, Arts Theatre) and Renée Lamb (Ain’t Misbehavin’, Southwark Playhouse/Mercury Colchester; Little Shop of Horrors, Regents Park Open Air Theatre; SIX, Arts Theatre) will take to the stage this autumn.
They will be joined by Olivier Award nominated Frances Mayli McCann (Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, National Theatre/Duke of York Theatre; Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Palace Theatre/UK tour; Heathers, Theatre Royal Haymarket), Jade Kennedy (Les Misérables, Brighton Theatre Group Youth; Billy Elliot, Victoria Palace Theatre) and Shakira Simpson (Hairspray, London Coliseum; 9 to 5, Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts).
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. 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!
