Onyeka Onwenu will perform alongside Kate Henshaw, Patience Ozokwor, and other notable Nollywood veterans and amazons, singing, dancing, and acting.
The 30 act all-female cast musical analyzes and celebrates the path of the girl child from birth, through youth and adulthood, all the way to motherhood, building on the success of ‘Ada The Country’ with its new Musical stage production.
Speaking Out is a great piece of work created and compiled by Chukwuma Okoye from Tony Marinho’s original compositions, utilizing a wide range of the feminine experience to convey a story pushed by a musical force, as directed by Kenneth Uphopho, the award-winning founder and director of Lagos and Abuja.
With magnificent dance, poetry, design, popular and traditional music and song, the musical stage play guarantees a 360-degree experience.
Speaking Out begins with a celebration of the girl child’s birth and takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride through her difficult growth in a predominantly gender discriminatory atmosphere. From the celebration of her birth to such common obstacles as child labor, education, female trafficking, dating, sex, spousal abuse, divorce, and single motherhood, she is plagued by an inequitable society. Despite all obstacles, she emerges with her daughter, stronger with dignity and pride, determined to live her life to the fullest.
Okoye is ecstatic about the cast selection and the energy they will offer to the performance through a combination of acting, singing, and dancing. She is particular about what each cast member will contribute to the production’s success.
Speaking Out, which will take place at Agip Hall, Muson Center, Lagos, from January 1 to 3, 2022, is already attracting much-deserved interest within the theatrical business, with crowds of girls filling out the casting call for auditions.
This is a great way to start the year, as it will set the tone for the performance and entertainment sector in the next year, while also providing hope and inspiration to the audience.
Prof Okoye has described the stage production as “amazing,” promising to leave the audience satisfied and showcasing the incredible and diverse cast of the lady, who will bring all of their talent to the stage, including music, acting, and dancing.
