NORTH West audiences can see the famous Calendar Girls in the flesh before they hit London’s West End.
The stage version of Tim Firth’s hilarious British film, which starred Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, will run for one week only at The Lowry in Salford from Monday-Saturday, October 20–25 before it is taken to the capital.
The all-star stage cast includes Lynda Bellingham, Patricia Hodge, Sian Phillips, Gaynor Faye, Brigit Forsyth, Julia Hills and Elaine C Smith.
For those who don’t know, Calendar Girls is a true story of a group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, who persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference.
Puzzling their husbands, mortifying their children and riding the wrath of an outraged WI, they inadvertently spark a global phenomenon. As interest in the calendar snowballs, the ladies find themselves revealing more than they’d ever planned.
Show times are evenings 7.30pm, Wednesday matinee 2.30pm, and Saturday matinee 3pm.
Tickets are £12 to £27, concessions £2 off except Friday and Saturday evenings. Contact the box office on 0870 787 5793 or www.thelowry.com
