Calendar Girls the Musical
The Girls are back!
THIS TIME WITH EVEN MORE LAUGHTER, MORE SONGS AND BIGGER ICED BUNS!
Following the death of a much-loved husband, a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute are prompted to do an extraordinary thing and set about creating a nude calendar to raise money for charity.
Calendar Girls the Musical brings together a stunning cast of music, stage, and television stars, including five Mrs Johnstones from Bill Kenwright’s production of Willy Russell’s smash hit Blood Brothers.
Tanya Franks (EastEnders), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans), Lyn Paul (The New Seekers), Amy Robbins (Coronation Street), Paula Tappenden (Theatre Star), Marti Webb (Tell Me on a Sunday) and Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyles War) as the ladies, turn preconceptions upside down, but are they prepared for the emotional and personal ramifications they will face as they each come in to bloom!
This brand-new production of the award-winning musical, written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth, features a re-imagined book and new music!
With unforgettable songs, each performance continues to add to the millions already raised for Blood Cancer UK and proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman!
