Calendar GirlsProgress Theatre presents:
Calendar Girls
by Tim Firth
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

Based on the Miramax motion picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth.

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 some of their fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an 'alternative' calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.

Directed by: Aidan Moran

Tickets: on 0118 960 6060, online at www.readingarts.co.uk and in person at the Hexagon or Town Hall

Thoroughly Modern Millie
Watermill Theatre, Bagnor, Newbury

Directed by Caroline Leslie
Musical musical arrangements by Paul Herbert
Choreography by Alistair David
Designed by Tom Rogers
Lighting designed by Philip Gladwell
Sound designed by Peter Rice
Assistant Director Tom O’Brien

It’s the roaring 20’s, Millie Dillmount from Kansas, steps off the train into a New York city filled with speakeasies, frivolous flappers and the pulsating sounds of syncopated jazz. America has thrown off its inhibitions and anything goes! Millie’s ‘modern’ plan is to work in a typing pool and marry the wealthy boss. But then she meets and falls in love with Jimmy, a man without a dime to his name... or so she thinks.

Filled with characters you’ll love, some you’ll love to hate, and great musical numbers, this high-energy, romantic comedy took Broadway by storm, winning six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. From the creative team behind The Watermill’s sell-out production of Radio Times.
