A Musical by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth
The death of a much-loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire town Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in the WI, they decide to make 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 that follow but, gradually, the making of the fabulous and funny calendar causes each of the women to unexpectedly blossom.
The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, a stage play and a musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow, which coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.
An amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals
Originally Produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and The Shubert Organisation / Based on the play Calendar Girls written by Tim Firth and on the motion picture Calendar Girls written by Tim Firth and Juliette Towhidi
