CALENDAR GIRLS – THE MUSICAL
We have the rights to perform this fantastic musical from 5th – 13th August 2022 at The Edinburgh Festival AND from 12th – 24th September 2022 back at home in our own brand new Viva Theatre!!!
The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a record breaking movie and stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow.
There are a variety of roles in the show for male and female performers of all ages along with a decent ensemble cast. A full cast list can be viewed here.
The show tells the story of the death of a much loved husband which prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.
The show coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time. I think we’re all looking forward to a good craugh!
