Rehearsals begin: Aug. 26,

Show dates: October 4-20, 2019
CALENDAR GIRLS is a deeply moving comedy-drama based on a true story. In 1998, a group of women in a small English village decided to raise money for their local hospital by producing a calendar which would parody the “cheese-cake” calendars they saw in their husband’s shops and garages.  So they agreed to be photographed “topless” (though very well concealed) for their own calendar. They hoped to raise 900 pounds. By the end of the year they had raised over half a million pounds which they donated to Cancer Research. Six of the women in the show MUST be willing to expose their bosoms for a brief second behind a screen and (in keeping with the tradition begun by the play) The Playhouse will be making a donation to The American Cancer Society.
