The death of a much-loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a Women’s Institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.
The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.
With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
Join Musical Theatre Stafford as they put on this beautiful true story.

Cancer (and sunflowers) are prominent themes of this show, so Musical Theatre Stafford thought this would be a great opportunity to undertake a project to raise awareness and money for a local charity.
We have had over 100 volunteers create crocheted sunflowers which are available to sponsor and we will attach a tag onto with your message.
You may choose to use the sunflower to remember someone you have lost to cancer, support someone who is fighting cancer or to celebrate someone who has beat cancer.
During the show week, these will be displayed by framing the stage, decorating the stairs, box office, bar area etc. which should make a really stunning and beautiful display and fill the theatre with a sea of Sunflowers.
Then post show, we will organise a date for these sunflowers to be collected by those who have sponsored them so they can be kept as a treasured memento.
Each sunflower will cost £5 to sponsor (or you may donate more if you would like to). We have chosen to donate all proceeds go Katharine House Hospice, Stafford as it is a local Stafford based charity who help support Cancer patients, along with patients who have many other illnesses/needs.
