Miss Shakespeare Will Be At The Firehall Arts Centre November 5-26

1 Nov

missshakespeareThe Firehall Arts Centre along with Musical TheatreWorks bring you Miss Shakespeare starting November 5th. Miss Shakespeare is a story inspired by the Bard’s daughter, whose own creative aspirations come alive as she leads a group of women in something secret, subversive and illegal. As it turns out, it’s staging of a play, but it’s the 1600’s and women are banned from the stage.  Behind the dingy walls of The Cage Tavern, six women explore the seductive power of the theatre. With a musical score that is influenced by underground European Cabaret. The women embrace their creativity, their voice and their freedom. Unfortunately, the law is not on their side, and if these artists are to truly have a voice, they must find the courage to get beyond the walls and in front of an audience. The book and lyrics are written by local talent, Tracey Power, with music co-written by Steve Charles. Miss Shakespeare runs from November 5-26 at the Firehall Arts Centre. Tickets are available online from $23.

“With humour and heart, Miss Shakespeare imagines an underground
world of women who broke the rules,
first quietly and then brazenly, changing the landscape forever”
