After the Success of ‘The Naked Truth’ and ‘Girls Night Out’, local theatre group Fortress is back by popular demand bringing ‘Calendar Girls The Musical’ to the main stage. Written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth, Fortress will be donating at least 50% of profits from this popular musical to St Catherine’s Hospice, a charity close to the heart of the local community.
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 part of the WI, 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 musical which coined the term "craughing" - the act of crying and laughing at the same time.
With unforgettable songs, relatable characters and a story with real heart, ‘Calendar Girls The Musical’ proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
Booking a ticket today promises to bring you laughter, tears and hopefully a wedge of cash for St Catherines Hospice!
