REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017 Just Beverley Saver
Its different for Girls

'It’s Different For Girls' at East Riding Theatre.

It's Different For Girls 6th – 23rd September 2017

She Productions presents - It’s Different For Girls

Devised by the Company. Directed by Becky Hope-Palmer (Associate director of The Hypocrite at Hull Truck)

The Girlfriends are stamping their go-go boots all over Hull’s music scene.

It's 1967 and somewhere off Holderness Road in a small garden shed you can hear a band practicing late into the night. A girl band.

An advert in a newspaper has brought Sindy, Betsy, Mitzi, Vicki and Poppet together. Once they've jumped the small hurdle of learning their instruments they head off in their flower delivery van to their first gig. Little do they know the impact they are about to have in the city - but will fame be all it’s cracked up to be?

It’s Different For Girls is a brand new musical inspired by Hull’s own 1960s girl band, Mandy & The Girlfriends. Through original songs, She Productions, all-female collective, will transport you back to the swinging sixties to celebrate five women who made their mark on the music scene.

Supported by Arts Council England.

Tickets £14-16
Opening two nights £10-£12
