A Comedy by Tim Firth Directed by Kris McMurray
June 28th thru August 3rd, 2019
Based on the true story and the 2003 movie of the same name, Calendar Girls is a hilarious yet touching production, sure to warm your heart!. When Annie's husband John dies, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow ladies, social members, to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press descend on the small town. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
The amazing cast includes: Barbara Horan as Annie, Karen Gagliardi as Chris, Jennifer Nadeau as Cora Bonnie Sprague as Jessie, Tracey Brown as Ruth, and Carleigh Cappetta-Schultz as Celia.
