'Calendar Girls' at Diamond Head Theatre
Diamond Head Theatre
January 26-February 11
Thu-Sat 7:30pm, Sun 4:00pm
Based on a true story and a hit movie, CALENDAR GIRLS comes to the DHT stage on January 26th. A little risqué—but a lot of fun---the play achieves exactly what it sets out to do. It makes you laugh; it makes you cry; it leaves you feeling better about life than you did when you walked in the door.
When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a local hospital. They manage to persuade four friends to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend their small village in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
Note: There is no actual nudity in this production, but there is the carefully staged appearance of nudity.
