What's On > Calendar Girls

Tue 31 Jan - Sat 4 Feb 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

By Tim Firth
Following an award-winning West End run and three sell-out, record breaking weeks in Birmingham, Calendar Girls is coming back for the very last time. 
The original Calendar Girl herself Lynda Bellingham returns to the show with Camilla Dallerup, Jan Harvey, Sue Holderness, Deena Payne, Lisa Riley, June Watson and Ruth Madoc with Kevin Sacre as Lawrence the photographer and Joe McGann as John.
A group of ordinary women do something extraordinary and spark a global phenomenon when they persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference! Based on an inspiring true story, Calendar Girls is quirky, poignant and hilarious.
Every time, Calendar Girls has sold out before it even opened, so don’t miss out and book today for the show the Mail on Sunday called “marvelous theatre, guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and come out singing Jerusalem!”
“A show I could see over and over again – and I hope I will!”
Sir Cliff Richard
“Lots of laughs and a few tears. This show should be on everyone’s calendar"
June Whitfield CBE
“Funny, charming and a touching tribute to the fundraising efforts of a group of extraordinary, ordinary women”
Ian Hislop
