Girl in the Cage, The

Dancing and wriggling atop a raised platform “The Girl in the Cage,” appeared as a regular dancer on the popular rock ‘n’ roll music show HULLABALOO/NBC/1965-66.


The very agile Lada Edmund, Jr. was the girl behind bars who was in a constant stage of “Frugging.” The show also featured the Hullabaloo dancers, a group of six female and four male dancers.

Note: On the sitcom TAXI/ABC/NBC/1978-83 Louis De Palma (Danny DeVito), a nasty taxi cab dispatcher worked in an elevated office cubical called “the Cage.”


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
