Inspirations Theatre Company will be presenting Bad Girls – The Musical at Mansfield Palace Theatre on September 18-19.

The performances of the entertaining musical, based on the popular TV series, start at 7.15pm.

Set in the fictional HMP Larkhall, Bad Girls – The Musical is the story of new idealistic Wing Governor Helen Stewart and her battles with the entrenched old guard of Officer Jim Fenner and his sidekick Sylvia Hollamby.

It also follows the love story that develops between Helen and charismatic inmate Nikki Wade. Other featured characters from the hit TV series include Shell Dockley and her runner Denny Blood, the two Julies and the ultimate ‘top dog’, Yvonne Atkins.

A tragic death on the wing – in which Jim Fenner is implicated – leads to an angry protest from the women and forces Helen and Nikki to their opposite sides of the bars. But when it’s clear that Helen

stands to lose her job over Fenner’s misdeeds, the race is on to nail him once and for all.

The musical features a book by Maureen Chadwick and Ann McManus, plus music by Martin Koch.
