Calendar Girls The Musical


Carlisle Road,

Calendar Girls - The Musical by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth is the award-winning production based on the true story of the calendar girls - a group of ordinary women who achieved something extraordinary. This marvellous musical comedy which received fantastic five-star reviews in London's West End now comes to Congress Theatre, Eastbourne!

Starring Lesley Joseph (Birds of a Feather) as Jessie, Lesley most recently starred as Frau Blücher in Mel Brooks' at the Garrick Theatre, a role which earned her an Olivier Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical. Sarah Jane Buckley (Blood Brothers, Hollyoaks) as Annie, Sue Devaney (Dinnerladies,Coronation Street) as Cora, Julia Hills (Broadchurch, Annabelle Shrivener in The Archers) as Ruth, Judy Holt (Cold Feet, Scott & Bailey) as Marie and Lisa Maxwell (Loose Women panelist, Hollyoaks) as Celia.

This musical comedy 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, and have to date raised almost £5million for Bloodwise.

Bloodwise, the UK’s specialist blood cancer charity, will continue to receive monies from this production.

The Times described Calendar Girls - The Musical as 'Pure gold'. Don't miss your chance to see this glorious production straight from London's West End.
