Centrestage Cymru have released a series of fun publicity images to tie in with their forthcoming presentation of the musical Calendar Girls at Newport’s Dolman Theatre.
The bright, fun photographs depict cast and creatives in a variety of fun Calendar Girl style poses. The musical is a global phenomenon that has also inspired a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, and a stage play.
Calendar Girls follows a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute who do an extraordinary thing following the death of a much-loved husband. Blasting away all preconceptions of their group, 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.
Centrestage Cymru present Tim Firth and Gary Barlow’s musical Calendar Girls at The Dolman Theatre, Newport from April 27 to 30 2022.
