WALLA WALLA – The Little Theatre of Walla Walla will stage the comedy Calendar Girls by Tim Firth with performances January 25, 26, February 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, and 10.
When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and 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 to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. 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.
The cast of Calendar Girls includes: Jesse Betts, Lola Bloom, Chanel Finnie, Terri Gilbert, Rich Hinz, Nathan Loomer, Cate Lyon, Heidi McFarley, Pam Murray, Jeremy Reed, Jenn Riggs, Marjorie Sanborn, Terri Trick, and Dyani Turner.
