Next Production

Lichfield Operatic Society


Based on the 2003 hit film, Calendar Girls the Musical tells the inspiring true story of the ordinary women from a small village in Yorkshire who did something extraordinary.

Following the death of a much-loved husband, the women of Knapely Women’s Institute decide to blast away all preconceptions of what it is to be in the WI and set out to create a nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of the women are prepared for the emotional and personal ramifications they will face as the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

The story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon: a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing” – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

Calendar Girls The Musical will be performed at the Lichfield Garrick 2nd – 6th July 2024

Tickets are now on sale and can be booked via the Lichfield Garrick Box Office on 01543 412121 or online at
