August is Women’s Month. Perhaps some people become tired of women-themed weeks, campaigns, months…(?). But one cannot get tired of women, can one? They are so involved in our everyday lives. They bring so much to the proverbial table. They keep the wheels turning every day. This show sheds light on a group of women who did not ask for some light. They demanded it. They were bold, sassy, reckless, naughty, groundbreaking, leaders…. They were the ladies in Blues. They paved the way for women who today grace the biggest stages in the world. Our production has been running for numerous years and people still love it. We reduced it to a trio format which was supposed to make travel easier. Then they said, “NO MORE SHOWS”! Never mind travel. So, we are happy to adapt and bring you this special show featuring stories and songs by ladies such as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, Etta James, Nina Simone and many more. With Simon Orange on narration and keys, Ben Badenhorst on guitars and Luna Paige on vocals. Directed by Richard Nosworthy. A perfect way to enjoy yourself while celebrating womanhood and how far we are in our quest for gender equality.
