Paris Hilton Signing Up For Another Musical?
Paris Hilton could be set to go back behind bars – to make her West End debut in a musical version of Prisoner Cell Block H.
The 26-year-old has been keen to strut her stuff on the London stage for a while and has now bagged a role in the show, reports the Daily Star.
The paper says the socialite’s casting in the musical, based on the long-running TV series, was a “major coup”.
A source said: “Everyone is very excited. There was a real buzz around the show when we thought we would get some well-known Aussie soap actors but Paris is a major coup.”
The blonde apparently “swotted up” with DVDs of the original TV series.
“She absolutely loved it and thought it marvellously camp,” the source added.
“Paris is keen to stretch herself as an actress. She’ll also get to stretch her vocal chords and she loves that.”

There was already a musical based on this show called The Wild Women Of Wentworth. I used to see some episodes of it in the 90s and my mother loved it. Cult late night viewing. Obviously if Paris is really being associated with a new musical version, then they’re not looking to recreate the look of the women from the TV show (let’s just say there were no great beauties among them). However, the media will have a field day with all the “going back to jail” etc stuff. The idea of Paris walking the boards of the West End is one thing that makes me jealous of Londoners – usually so and so is doing this or that play is pretty blaise to me.
