The Girls

Following the official opening of  The Girls, producers have announced that the show has extended its booking at the Phoenix Theatre to 15 July 2017. A Tuesday matinee performance will also be added to the weekly schedule from 25 April 2017.

Based on the true story, the film and the award-winning play Calendar Girls, The Girls was met with positive reviews in London, including a five-star review from London Theatre: “a new British musical that doesn’t just sing but also soars”

The musical is inspired by the true story of a group of ladies, who decide to appear nude for a Women’s Institute calendar in order to raise funds to buy a settee for their local hospital, in memory of one of their husbands, and have to date raised almost £5million for Bloodwise. This musical comedy shows life in their Yorkshire village, how it happened, the effect on husbands, sons and daughters, and how a group of ordinary ladies achieved something extraordinary.
