Empowering pop musical Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World comes to Leeds in February!
This kick ass-pirational stage show, based on the popular children’s book by Suffragette relative Kate Pankhurst, and adapted by Chris Bush (Faustus, Pericles, The Band Plays On) comes from one of the producers of 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 incredible wonder women: Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Mary Seacole, 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.
Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World is an empowering new stage show that will be celebrated by anyone who is prepared to move and be moved, with characters and songs that pack a popstar punch!
