Calendar Girls by Tim Firth Directed by Paul Campion
Fri 12th – Sat 20th October (not Sun)
Yes, the theatrical phenomenon of the last decade is coming to BLT! The most successful play ever to tour the UK, Calendar Girls is being given a limited release for amateur performance and BLT will be one of the first to stage it. So if you haven’t yet seen this marvellous show (or even if you have!) now’s your chance to find out what all the fuss is about.
Based on a true story, it tells the tale of a group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire branch of the Women’s Institute, who spark global interest by posing naked for a calendar to raise money for charity. As the publicity snowballs, they end up revealing far more about themselves than they’d ever planned…
A very British story, with a very British heart, Calendar Girls is uplifting, inspiring, quirky, poignant…and hilarious!
As you’d expect with a show of this quality, we have managed to assemble a first-rate cast. They are:
Chris Hilary Cordery
Annie Julie Binysh
Cora Sue Williams
Ruth Emma Kerby-Evans
Celia Margaret Tully
Jessie Kay O’Dea
Marie Jane Buckland
Lady Cravenshire/Brenda Hulse Jan Greenhough
Elaine Laura Kenward
John Steve Williams
Lawrence/Liam Tom Collins
Rod Mike Savill
Calendar Girls is one of the most popular shows of the last ten years and is going to be just as popular at BLT, so book early!
