Liven up your winter with empowering musical, Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World. This critically-acclaimed show is packed with awe-inspiring characters, a catchy pop soundtrack and TikTok-friendly choreography.
It’s brought to you by the producers of the worldwide sensation SIX and is based on the popular book by Kate Pankhurst, relative of one of the great suffrage leaders. Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World has already delighted and inspired audiences across the UK and with this current tour is continuing to do so.
Remarkable – and often forgotten – women from history are lifted from the pages of Pankhurst’s beloved book and brought gloriously to life on stage. These include Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Mary Seacole, Frida Kahlo, Jane Austen and Pankhurst’s own relative Emmeline.
When inquisitive heroine Jade breaks away from her school trip to the local museum, she peeks into the Gallery of Greatness and meets iconic women from the past. Women whose actions and lives have changed the world as we know it. Enthralling and heart-warming, the musical is full of incredible characters, from explorers and scientists to artists and secret agents, and a soundtrack that packs a popstar punch.
The creative team behind this uplifting stage show features renowned dramatist Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, National Theatre) and music by UK No.1 hit songwriter Miranda Cooper, whose songs include Sound of the Underground, Round Round and The Promise.
