Bad Girls (the musical) in Spalding next week

They’re bad girls, they’re locked up – and some of their jailers are not much better.

Be warned: this show has a 15+ certification and contains partial nudity, adult themes and strong language (plus strobe lighting, incidentally), but for fans of the TV show, this will be a welcome return to Larkhill.

From the gritty opening number, to the prison riot scene, this show will have audience members on the edge of their seats wondering what will happen next.

The story of the shows takes its starting point from the original core characters from the TV series of Bad Girls, drawing on the tale of wing governor Helen Stewart (Jodie Schweikhardt) and her battles with old guard Jim Fenner (Andrew Canham) and his sidekick Sylvia Hollamby (Jane Moss), as well as a developing love story between Helen and inmate Nikki Wade (Anita Heaton).

Tickets are on sale now at £12, or £10 for concessions, available from South Holland Centre’s box office or from 01775 764777.
