The Haslemere Players are thrilled to be bringing the amazing Calendar Girls the Musical to life this October. With original music by Gary Barlow and lyrics by Tim Firth (writer of the original screenplay and West End play), this inspirational story features unforgettable songs, relatable characters and a story with real heart.
Inspired by real life events, Calendar Girls the Musical tells the story of a group of ordinary women from a small Yorkshire town who did something extraordinary. After the death of a much-loved husband, this small group of WI women decide to raise money for a new settee for the hospital’s visitors room… by doing a nude calendar! Despite facing resistance from family and friends and the emotional and personal ramifications that ensure, they don’t give up, with hilarious and unexpected outcomes.
This poignant musical-comedy will make you both laugh and cry in equal measure and demonstrates that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman!
