CALENDAR GIRLS

NODA REVIEW

Steven Macvicar says:

 

"I thought all the ladies were terrific without fail. There was an assortment of characters on stage all fulfilling roles that varied in size.

 

As well as the acting on view there was no shortage of bravery. A special mention must go to Alice Rose Rayman whose character had to go just that little bit extra and sit naked on a piano stool with no hiding place.

 

Congratulations to Katy Goddard for directing such a tight and entertaining production. All characterisations were big but stayed within the realms of plausability.

 

The play was well produced and stage managed by Philippa Stone and her crew."

SYNOPSIS

Based on a true story, eleven middle-aged Englishwomen pose nude for their annual Women's Institute calendar as a fund-raiser for the local hospital. Chris gets the idea to raise money for the hospital after Annie's husband passes away due to leukemia. The calendar is a little different in that each woman is posing behind a different task that the Women's Institute teaches their members, such as making bread rolls, knitting, planting flowers, and playing the piano. Before they know it, the calendar is a big hit in England with tremendous sales. Eventually, they are flown to American to be interviewed by Jay Leno. The calendar has made almost a million dollars for the local hospital and the play enables more money to be raised for this cause.
