CALENDAR GIRLS THE MUSICAL TOUR

tour of gary barlow's calendar girls the musicalCalendar Girls the musical tour is Gary Barlow and Tim Firth's musical adaptation of Calendar Girls which ran as The Girls for six months at the Phoenix Theatre in London's West End until July 2017, after premiering at the Leeds Grand Theatre in late 2015 with a second out-of-town tryout at The Lowry in Salford in early 2016.

It is going out on a 60 week tour, returning home to Yorkshire to open at the Leeds Grand Theatre on 15th August 2018 before visiting theatres across the United Kingdom

Calendar Girls the Musical is inspired by the true story of a group of ladies, who decide to appear nude for a Women's Institute calendar in order to raise funds to buy a settee for their local hospital, in memory of one of their husbands. This musical comedy shows life in their Yorkshire village, how it happened, the effect on husbands, sons and daughters, and how a group of ordinary ladies achieved something extraordinary.

It is based on the 2003 film Calendar Girls which featured a screenplay by Tim Firth and Juliette Towhidi based on a true story of a group of Yorkshire women who produced a nude calendar to raise money for Leukaemia Research under the auspices of the Women's Institutes in April 1999.

Casting for the tour includes Denise Welch (Celia), Sara Crowe (Ruth), Lorraine Bruce (Cora), Fern Britton (Marie), Karen Dunbar (Cora), Anna Jane Casey (Annie), Rebecca Storm (Chris), and Ruth Madoc (Jessie).

Joining them will be Phil Corbitt as John, Ian Mercer as Rod, Sebastian Abineri as Colin, Alan Stocks as Denis, Pauline Daniels as Lady Cravenshire, Catherine Digges as Miss Wilson, Danny Howker as Danny, Derek Elroy /Lawrence, Pauline Daniels/ Lady Cravenshire/Brenda Broccoli, Isabel Adams/Jenny. Tyler Dobbs as Tommo and Ellie Leah,

Directed by Matt Ryan, the creative team includes Robert Jones (designer), Lucy Hind (movement) and Joe Houben (comedy staging).
