From now until 2 January 2022, the Liverpool Playhouse stage will burst into life with a new pop musical ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World’ from the producer of SIX.
This stage adaptation of suffragette descendent, Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book is written by celebrated dramatist, Chris Bush (Nine Lessons and Carols, Almeida Theatre) and number one hit songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Sugarbabes).
Join the 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.
Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World will be celebrated by anyone who is prepared to move and be moved. With characters and songs that pack a popstar punch, this new show for ages 6+ is guaranteed to be one to remember.
