Join us for a celebration of women's individuality and strength. Strong Female Character is a love letter to the women that enhance the stories we love, presented through burlesque, cabaret, and comedy. Despite the misconception that a strong, female character should be brimming with muscles and masculinity (and yet somehow still require saving by the hero), we believe strength is made up of more. Come and see characters with purpose, with sass, with power, with flaws, and yes, sometimes with muscles. Over an hour of high energy entertainment, we'll not only get to know some of fiction and history's most interesting women, but dig into the origins of the strong, female character trope, and how it became so misunderstood. Presented at Prompt Creative by Brandy Snap, a local silly tart and lady character appreciator, this fun show is guaranteed to get you laughing, fist pumping, and inspired! Come along for a cabaret show with a badass edge.
