A play About the Mysteries of Midlife and Beyond
Written & Directed by Barbara Wilder
Musical Director – Kris Dillon
Produced by The Power Woman Magic Project
ABOUT THE PLAY
POWER WOMAN MAGIC inspires, excites, and entices women in the second half of life to break out of old stereotypes and embrace their magnificence, remember their original dreams, and step out into the world to fulfill their original purpose. The play calls women to remember the power and the magic of love, nurture, creativity, healing, caring, giving, sharing, and birthing. This time the birthing is of their new Power Woman selves. POWER WOMAN MAGIC is a powerful blend of ancient feminine wisdom and contemporary urban living, taking you on a journey into the mysteries of women's lives, now and throughout history.
Accompanied by a chorus of dynamic female drummers, who create the heart beat of the show, a cast of seven diverse women learn to open their hearts and minds to the magic of their own power. As they boldly step past old limitations, each woman discovers and embarks upon her individual life purpose with a sense of joy and fulfillment.
MINI WORKSHOP FOLLOWING EACH PERFORMANCE
The play is followed by an open conversation between the cast and the audience. This lasts from thirty minutes to an hour. The audience is free to talk to ask the cast about their own personal experiences in rehearsing and performing the play, and the cast encourages the audience members to speak out about their own dreams, and fears, and hopes for their own future and the future of the world. Discussions between audience members can lead to new networks of women helping women to form right there in the theatre.
PEOPLE WHO HAVE SEEN THIS REMARKABLE PLAY ARE OVERWHELMED BY ITS POWER, ITS JOYFULNESS, AND ITS TRANSFORMATIVE ENERGY.
Women audience members said: "I felt transported into my own power."
" I realized I could finally accomplish my dreams."
"I stood and cheered. It was so uplifting."
"I cried and laughed. When it was over, I wanted to see it again right away."
"I didn't want it to end. It was so comforting and funny at the same time."
"My first question to the cast was, how can we help you take this play to the world?"
Men audience members said: "This was quite enlightening. I felt like I finally had an understanding of women."
"There was no 'male-bashing.' It was just extremely entertaining."
"I'm glad my wife invited me to come. It was a wonderful theatrical experience."

It is our intention to produce this show all around the country, inspiring communities to participate in our vision and utilize the production as a vehicle for mass transformation.
There are two ways to bring this play to your community. The first way, is the traditional way. We will work with your organization, theatre company, college campus, or other entity to bring our entire cast to your community. Our cast is wonderful, and you will soon be able to view them performing the play on a DVD that is currently being edited.
But we have learned also, that being a member of the cast, staff, and crew is an exceptional transformative experience. So we have created a way that you can participate at that level. This is the second way that you can bring POWER WOMAN MAGIC to your community. You will bring Barbara Wilder, director, playwright, and actor, and Kris Dillon, the drum leader and Musical director, and one additional staff member to your community and produce play with local women. Barbara will direct and perform the part of Gwen, and Kris will teach and lead the drumming/chanting chorus and perform as the Drum Leader on stage. IMPORTANT NOTE: One doesn't need to be a trained actor to perform this play. The women who play the parts need to have the desire and the willingness to get on stage and be bold.
Barbara and Kris will also lead full length transformational and drumming workshops based on the play. This is an exciting project for any woman's organization.
Please contact us if you are interested in learning how to host POWER WOMAN MAGIC in your community.
