Top 5 Musical Theatre Villains with Hannah Barn

Today’s episode is pure evil!

We are looking at the top 5 Musical Theatre Villains. My guest today is director, performer and community theatre favourite Hannah Barn whilst she took a break from her latest project, Tarzan with Canterbury Theatre Guild. Be warned that because we are discussing villains, we will be discussing their contribution to the plot and their eventual demise which means there will be spoilers a-plenty.

  • Villains, the movers and shakers of every musical theatre plot
  • The satisfaction of ‘just desserts’
  • Is Miss Hannigan just a tired childcare worker or truly evil?
  • The original “dance mom” we may all recognise in our own worlds
  • We all love to hate them, BUT they have the best songs!
  • The ultimate comic villain that makes both lists
