Bad Girls Finale!

Well that’s it guys, the end of another amazing show week!
We’ve had so many highs and far too many lows to count but it always pays off in the end!

I have to say that on a personal level I can’t remember having such a laugh performing on stage and working with such a great group of people; it has been the best!
Everyone has worked so hard on this show and it really has paid off!
Here are a few comments from the audience on Facebook this week that made me smile!

Absolutely amazing show tonight. Bad Girls at Castleford Phoenix Theatre. Different show but it worked. Amazing cast and crew. Kudos to Andy Lunn Bev Maher and Sarah Crowley as always for the hard work they would have had to put in for such a polished show. But the show wouldn’t be a show without a stellar cast. Sue Sheppard Sarah Clarkson Phil Clarkson Rebecca Atha Clare Jaggar Heins Carl Backhouse Eleanor Aldous Lizzie Marris Julie Backhouse Carol Whelpton Dawn Elizabeth Walton Vikki Vaughan and not forgetting my beautiful Head Usher Pauline Dyson……if I’ve missed anyone I do apologise. Great to see everyone. Back soon I promise!!

Brilliant night watching Encore’s version of Bad Girls at Castleford Phoenix Theatre. Well done Phil Clarkson as Jim Fenner. Doesn’t look as good as me in the uniform, but not a bad effort…

Many thanks to the Encore Theatre Company for a top-notch production of Bad Girls the Musical tonight. It is said that fortune favours the brave, and this show was living proof of that. The music, the choreography, the singing, the scene-setting, everything added up to an extremely enjoyable evening, though I doubt Phil Clarkson will ever be the same again after his raunchy scene with Bev Maher 😉  I hope he comes through his counselling OK
