What people have said about it...
UK Amateur Premiere: York Stage Musicals, 23rd-27th February 2010.
"hugely enjoyable production"; "The already heightened drama is further heightened by the songs, which are the driving force of John Hall's thrilling production"; "York Stage Musicals' amateur premiere really takes off, just like the helicopter escape at the finale."
Charles Hutchinson, York Press
Worthing Light Opera Society, 24th-27th March 2010.
"The cast from Worthing Light Opera Company excelled themselves with professional performances" "Bad Girls is nothing short of riotously entertaining, with the emphasis on the riot!"
Emilly Walker, The Argus
"We have never had so much fun doing a show EVER!"
Jonathan Phillip Wardle, director for WLOS
Leatherhead Operatic Society, 22nd-26th June 2010.
"Leatherhead Operatic Society (LOS) took a risk when it decided to stage this sometimes downbeat, occasionally raunchy musical, set in Larkhall Women's Prison. In the event, it seemed that the show's fine music, well interpreted by a talented cast, resonated with appreciative audiences, across the age range."
Tony Flook for Leatherhead Advertiser
Arran Music and Drama Club, 30th May - 4th June 2011.
"Arran Music and Drama Club took a massive leap of faith when it chose Bad Girls The Musical for this year's production. They wanted to try something new and more adventurous than previously and are so glad they did! The cast absolutely loved this show and thankfully so did the audiences, with almost capacity houses on the six night run. It was given rave reviews from the local press, and the audiences have really embraced the freshness and vitality of the whole experience. This show plays on every emotion and provides scope for strong acting, has a wonderful variety of songs and as much dancing as you can cope with. Rarely do we have cast members in tears at the end of the run, as they don't want it to end, but this show even did that!"
Maureen Smith, Director of Arran Music and Drama Club.
