The award-winning production of Calendar Girls – The Musical by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth is coming to Glasgow June 2019
Based on the true story of the calendar girls – a group of ordinary ladies who achieved something extraordinary. This marvellous musical comedy which received fantastic five-star reviews in London’s West End now comes to Glasgow for 11 dates from the 11th to 22nd June 2019.
The story of the Calendar Girls began in 1998 when John Baker, husband of Angela Baker, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. John sadly passed away after just a few months of treatment, but in the months following their loss, Angela and her friends set about creating the now infamous calendar as something for Angela to focus on and, also, to prove John wrong – he said they’d never do it!
Calendar girls the musical is written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow and has received five star reviews including “A gloriously fun celebration… Make a date now to see the girls…it is riotously brilliant”
