Chicks Dig It is a darkly comedic feature-length musical set in the absurd world of a crumbling mustard mansion turned outback minimum security women’s prison, where the ladies rarely act like ladies. It follows a newly incarcerated young woman from the burbs of Melbourne who turned to embezzling to pay herself the money she feels she absolutely deserves. Upon her entrance into prison, she meets Jet – an aged, transgendered lifer. When she learns he’s planning an escape, she assists Jet's plan with the aid of five prison misfits.
UMMTA's The Factory returns in 2018 with a brand new double bill of musical theatre. With book and lyrics by Coco Garner Davis and Music and Lyrics by Victoria Hofflin, Chicks Dig It is a fun and vibrant musical, accompanied by a soundtrack of lush musical theatre sounds and 80s synth-pop that combines Wentworth with the The Book of Mormon.
