THE GIRLS ARE BACK – WITH EVEN MORE LAUGHTER MORE JOY, MORE SONGS – AND BIGGER ICED BUNS! Bill Kenwright presents GARY BARLOW AND TIM FIRTH’S CALENDAR GIRLS THE MUSICAL STAR CASTING TO BE ANNOUNCED! Inspired by the true story of the Calendar Girls. Following the death of a much-loved husband, a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women's Institute are prompted to do an extraordinary thing and set about creating a nude calendar to raise money for charity.
But upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of the women are prepared for the emotional and personal ramifications they will face as the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.
The story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon: a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, stage play and now a musical written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth which 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 Blood Cancer UK and prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
Calendar Girls the Musical brings together a stunning cast of music, stage, and television stars. Laurie Brett (EastEnders), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans, Blood Brothers), Lyn Paul (The New Seekers, Blood Brothers), Helen Pearson (Hollyoaks), Samantha Seager (Coronation Street) and Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War) star as the ladies, who turn preconceptions upside down, but are they prepared or the emotional and personal ramifications they will face as they each come in to bloom?
