A phenomenal new musical sweeps into Liverpool Playhouse this Christmas. Created by the producers of the international hit musical SIX (no less), Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World is a stage musical adaptation of suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book. Described as a ‘kickass-pirational pop musical’, we’re thrilled that the show will burst into life on the Liverpool Playhouse stage this Christmas.
The show has been created by a phenomenal team of fantastically great women too.
With an all-female creative team, the musical has been written by celebrated dramatist Chris Bush and songwriter Miranda Cooper, who has penned hits for pop superstars Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud. With music by Miranda Cooper and Jennifer Decilveo and direction by Amy Hodge – it looks as though the show has been created by a phenomenal team of fantastically great women too.
The story follows inquisitive heroine Jade and her visit to a local museum on a school trip. When Jade sneaks away from the rest of her class to take a look at a new exhibition, ‘Gallery of Greatness’ – which is not open to the public yet, she is surprised to bump into some of the most influential women ever to have lived. Featuring the original and most incredible wonder women: Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Emmeline Pankhurst and Mary Seacole, Jade meets with the women who shook the world.
The perfect way for all ages to celebrate some of the female icons who changed the world.
From artists and scientists, explorers and activists, Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World introduces audiences to some of history’s strongest mothers, daughters and sisters. Recommended for ages 6+, we think the show is the perfect way for all ages to celebrate some of the female icons who changed the world.
