Calendar Girls: The Musical

The death of a much loved husband 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 true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and now this hugely successful musical. With first-class songs by Take That’s Gary Barlow and a witty but equally moving script by long-time friend Tim Firth, it is a cracker of a show with a warm heart that coined the term "craughing"  - the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

This amateur production of CALENDAR GIRLS: THE MUSICAL is presented by HAOS Productions by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.

HAOS Spamalot
