Bad Girls the Musical

It was great to see something new and so well done, with an impressive projected background complete with riot scenes and wonderful sound effects of prison doors clanking shut and the sound of a helicopter overhead. This was a fast movng production with the cast moving the scenery on at one side of the stage and off the other quickly and efficiently.
An excellent team of confident experienced actors established their characters withut any difficulty whatsoever. Bad Girls is based on the long running television series so all the characters are well known to the audience, and LIDOS players gave an accurate interpretation.
Shell (Emma Folkard), Nikki (Jane Ellaway), Jim (David Collins), Sylvia ‘Bodybag’ (Shirley Hoyland) and Helen Wing Governor (Claire Wallace) lifted the production to great heights.
The musical numbers were brilliantly performed, especially the comedy ones and the big tap number with all the company taking part dressed as warders with wigs and sparkly costumes.
The show does have plenty of bad language but it is necessary to the plot.
Congratulations to Simon and the production team along with all the cast for giving us a great evenings entertainment
