Girl power!: A 'Spice World' Live Reading

Ghostlight Ensemble presents a live reading of the Spice World screenplay, complete with our Spices singing all the Girl Power hits that you know and love from this modern cinematic classic.

Spice World is a British musical comedy starring the 1990s pop sensation known as the Spice Girls (who all play over-the-top versions of themselves in the movie). The lighthearted comedy follows the girls on a series of events leading up to their first live concert to be held at London's Royal Albert Hall, with plenty of dream sequences, flashbacks, flashforwards and surreal moments scattered in between.

The cast is:

Spice Girls
Caitlin Jackson as Geri (Ginger)
Song Marshall as Mel B (Scary)
Jean E. Burr* as Mel C (Sporty)
Carrie Campana as Emma (Baby)
Emma Palizza as Victoria (Posh)
