Mark Mannisto, exectuive director of Theatre Cambrian, has announced auditions for the dinner theatre production of “Calendar Girls,” by Tim Firth, are now set.
When Annie's husband, John, dies of leukaemia, 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 for a calendar. 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 production is based on the true story of 11 women who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund.
Auditions will be held Oct. 2 and Oct. 4. Audition requirements can be found on Theatre Cambrian’s website. To book a private audition, please phone 705-524-7317.
