Operatic chooses Bad Girls the Musical as its next show

Llangollen Operatic Society has chosen Bad Girls the Musical for its next production.

Described as "powerful, uplifting and raucous," the entertaining British musical is based on the ITV prison drama series of the same name which ran from 1999 to 2006.

The show, to be staged at Llangollen Town Hall from May 22-25, is set inside the mythical Larkhill Prison and focuses on some interesting and varied female inmates including Shell Dockley, Nikki Wade and the Two Julies.

New wing governor Helen Stewart has her work cut out managing prisoner officers Sylvia "Bodybag" Hollamby and the ruthless, scheming Jim Fenner.  

Bad Girls sees the return of Chrissie Ashworth as artistic director, with Elen Mair Roberts as musical director and Sarah Marshall and Rob Stevens assisting with artistic movement.

Producers are Tracey Kempster Jones and Caroline Anthonisz.

Open auditions for the show take place from midday on Saturday January 13 at St Collen's Community Hall and the production team says it welcomes members old and new to come along. Email them at to register and find out more.

Rehearsals will initially take place at the society's studio in Llangollen every Tuesday.
