Theatre group to ‘reveal all’

THE popular story of how a group of extraordinary women bared all to raise money for a charity calendar is coming to Whitley Bay.

Calendar Girls will be at the Playhouse Whitley Bay from September 5 to 8, presented by the Whitley Bay Theatre Company.

Released for a 12-month period for the amateur stage, Calendar Girls tells the story of how a group of women from an ordinary Yorkshire Women’s Institute, spark a global phenomenon by persuading one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference.

As interest snowballs, the ‘Calendar Girls’ find themselves revealing more than they had ever planned.
