'Calendar Girls' Get A Date!

The Chichester Festival Theatre production of 'Calenar Girls' is to open in the West End in November.
Tim Firth has adapted the famous film for stage presentation in Chichester in September. It will then play a week in at the Kings Theatre Edinburgh while it is set up for a pros theatre in London. There's a possibility that it may book another week at another venue prior to London to tighten the production.

Great news, and im sure we will also be seeing Chichester's production of 'Funny Girl' move into town before then! I certainly hope so- it opened last week to full out rave reviews.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Not really a fan of the film but will be interesting how they adapt this to the stage. More interested to see if Funny Girl or The Music Man will transfer tto the West End though I think it more likely than Calender Girls will transfer as most of thr Chichester Theatre london transfers have been plays.

You would be surprised at the number of musicals Chichester has sent to the West End in the last 30 years.
