Calendar Girls

Calendar Girls - The Musical

By Gary Barlow & Tim Firth

14th - 18th Jun 2022

The death of a much loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women's Institute to do an extraordinary thing.

Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women's institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

The true 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 prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

**Please note this play contains Nudity/Partial Nudity and is rated as a PG-13

An Evil Thing

A new play by Sarah-May Simpson

18th - 23rd July 2022

In Tyneside during the Second World War, the sadistic tendencies of a 12-year-old bully take a deadly turn when she and her naive cousin are evacuated from South Shields.

Containing some strong language, An Evil Thing is a dark contemporary one act play. It was the Progressive Players' entry in the 2022 Durham & Sunderland One Act Festival, held in March at the Alun Armstrong Theatre in Stanley. Against some stiff competition, An Evil Thing won the Allan Monkhouse Award for Best New Play.

The Progressive Players are delighted to be bringing this award-winning production to the stage of the Little Theatre Gateshead, as an addition to the previously announced programme of plays for 2022. Tickets will be available soon, on a pay-as-you-please basis.

Running time approximately 50 minutes. Not suitable for children.
