Matinee: September 24, 2017
Evening Curtain: 8 PM, Matinee Curtain: 2 PM

When middle-aged women need to raise money for a good cause, what do they do? Make more homemade jam, crochet tea cosies, or host yet another bake sale? No, with prompting from the rebel of the group, they become ‘Calendar Girls’. Based on a true story, the play follows the
trials and tribulations faced by these feisty ladies as their alternative fund-raiser becomes a
media sensation. For every Calendar Girl the fame and recognition takes its toll in different ways,
and the true measure of friendship is put to the test as the members of
Knapley WI struggle with their famous or infamous reputations.
