Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World

BASED ON THE BOOK BY KATE PANKHURST AND PUBLISHED BY BLOOMSBURY

CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE?!! 

The world premiere of a brand new kick-asspirational pop musical bursts to life 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, 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 (Nine Lessons and Carols, Almeida Theatre) and No. 1 hit songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue) adapt suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst’s bestselling picture book with music by Miranda Cooper and Jennifer Decilveo (Miley Cyrus, Beth Ditto) and direction 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!
