CHARMING comedy classic, Calendar Girls, is set to make its musical debut at The Brindley Theatre this month.

Written by experienced writer and composer Tim Firth and music led by Take That star, Gary Barlow, the show promises to be as gripping and infectious as the original story it draws inspiration from.

Donna Dale, from D&S Productions said: “We can't wait to bring this iconic musical to the stage at The Brindley Theatre.

“Our cast and crew have worked tirelessly and we're so proud of our very own group of ‘Calendar Girls’. During our production we will be raising funds for the Hospice of The Good Shepherd in Chester to help support their work in providing specialist palliative and end-of-life care in a welcoming and compassionate environment."

The musical is based on the iconic true story of a group of women, all members of the Women's Institute in a small Yorkshire village who following the death of a much-loved husband, decide to blow away all preconceptions of what it is to be in the WI by doing an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity.

But this decision comes with its own hurdles and emotional challenges for the women of the group, with confidence and self-love put to its biggest test yet.

The inspiring story was made into a hit blockbuster back in 2003, with a star-studded cast including the likes of Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, Celia Imrie and Penelope Wilton.

And now D&S Productions theatre company will bring all the humour and emotion with an exciting musical spin to the popular Runcorn venue between October 26 and 29.
