"Calendar Girls" with MCT
2:00 PM
MCT Center for the Performing Arts
Description:
After losing her husband to leukemia, Annie and her best friend Chris embark on creating a fundraising calendar to raise money to replace the old, uncomfortable couch in the hospital waiting room. The effort raises eyebrows as well as funds. Pushing boundaries of bravery, friendship and British sensibility, Calendar Girls is powerful and hilarious, while best enjoyed by a mature audience. (Suggested as PG13 for a bit of language and the modest suggestion of nudity).

Playwright Tim Firth explains the scene in which the calendar photographs are taken by saying, “As in the best traditions of vaudevillian fan dances, the art of the play’s nudity lies in what is withheld…best described as ‘fabulous concealment.’ Should we see anything we oughtn’t, the whole scene will deflate like a soufflé on which the oven door has been opened too quickly.”


*Calendar Girls will take place at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts, January 17-27, 2019. Tickets are available at MCTinc.org; by calling 406-728-PLAY(7529); or at the MCT Box Office, which is open Mon.-Fri. between 9AM and 5PM. The production is sponsored by First Interstate Bank, Madison Creek Furnishings and Equity Management Inc.
