The production stars Carol L. Mann and Nancy Ebert as Chris and Annie, two friends who resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room – a project they take on after Annie’s husband is diagnosed with leukemia.

They persuade their fellow members of the Women’s Institute to pose nude with them for a fundraising calendar – and, before they know it, the women become worldwide sensations.

The cast also includes Joan Koebel, Emma Greenhalgh, Beverley Field and Elaine Francis as the other “calendar girls,” with Kathleen Driscoll, Sue Sparlin, Natalie Schreiber, Gavin LeClaire, Chris Coulter and Jared Arthur rounding out the cast.

Calendar Girls is onstage June 2 to 26 at the Bernie Legge Theatre, Queen’s Park. It runs Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 regular, or $13 for seniors and youth, with $10 previews on June 2 and 3.
