Minehead Dramatic Society & Hole in the Wall Productions
Minehead Dramatic Society is celebrating their 60th Anniversary in 2023, by presenting Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s “Calendar Girls the Musical”.
Ten years ago Minehead Dramatic Society performed the stage version of Calendar Girls so it is apt that we should present the musical version on our anniversary. The stories are very similar to the stage version, but the musical is more uplifting this is due to the fantastic music and lyrics by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth.
Here is a brief synopsis of the Production:
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 The 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 proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
It is fitting that we are raising money for two Charities, The MATA Regal Theatre Co ltd and our Local Community Cancer Services.
