Small Pond Presents
Calendar Girls The Musical
by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth
based on the hit film and stage play of the same name.
Directed by Lee Baxendale
After the success of White Christmas and Little Shop of Horrors in 2022, Small Pond returns to The Landmark with this heartwarming, heartbreaking and hilarious musical.
We’re going to need considerably bigger buns!
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.
