April Auditions for Calendar Girls

Come and audition for our 2018 show Calendar Girls, based on the very popular film of the same name:

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members, Cora, Celia, Ruth and Jessie, to pose nude with them for an ‘alternative” calendar.

The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new found fame.

Audtions will be held at the CWA Hall in Milton at 7-9pm:

  • Tuesday April 10th
  • Thursday April 12th

Callbacks will be held at the same venu and time:

  • Tuesday April 17th
  • Thursday April 19th

Our next production: Calendar Girls

The much loved comedy Calendar Girls will make its local debut at the Milton Theatre towards the end of this year. This popular story follows the quiet, normally conservative ladies of a Women’s Institute in Yorkshire, who bare more than just their souls, in order to raise funds for charity.

The play is in the safe hands of experienced director Di Falloon, who has created many successful shows for the Follies over the years. She’s returning from a break, full of enthusiasm for this moving story about friendship, nudity, loss, and strategically placed flowers and vegetables.
