Seeking cast for Calendar Girls!

Calendar Girls, by Tim Firth, follows the true story of a group of friends who are trying to purchase a new settee for their local hospital’s cancer ward. They decide to embark on a rather daring (and baring) fundraising venture as they create a calendar which causes quite the stir in their otherwise quiet Yorkshire town. Funny and heartwarming, this show is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Author’s Note on Nudity:

As in the best traditions of vaudevillian fan dances, the art of the play’s nudity lies in what is withheld. The choreography of this sequence is best described as “fabulous concealment”.

From the director:

Never fear — I will stage the scene very tastefully. My ladies will NOT be embarrassed!

If you would like to borrow a script, please pick one up at our Backstage home on Monday, June 11 between 7:30 – 8:30 pm. A $20 refundable deposit is required, and will be returned during auditions.
