FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD – January 2022
Who? Kenny Wax Family Entertainment & MAST Mayflower Studios co-production
What? Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World
Where? Chichester Festival Theatre
When? 12th – 16th January 2022
What’s the show about? It was all about a girl called Jade who is in a museum on a school trip. She leaves her group and goes to a closed area where she learns all about some fantastic women who changed the world when she meets them and they tell her about what their lives have been like. Jade wants to go on an adventure like they have been and they help her decide what she might want to do. In the end she is inspired to go on her own journey and be herself.
What’s really good about it? All of the songs were really fun. I especially liked Deeds Not Words and You Will Be Fantastically Great. I really liked that we learnt a lot as well as it being a good show. In other shows I have known the story before, but I didn’t know about all of these people and they were really interesting to hear about.
What could be better? No interval means no ice cream. Again. Other than that, it was really good.
What my dad thinks? “This one is ideal for children aged 6-12 years of age. Some of the songs were great and the empowering and uplifting message was wonderful for both of my children to hear. It was kind of a cross between Disney Descendants and Horrible Histories (but without the horrible bits). Parking was nightmare, but I won’t hold that against the show, and they did hold the curtain for 10 minutes, so fair play.”
