Following the highly acclaimed My Fair Lady and Oliver! The Cotswold Savoyards proudly present the classic musical Calamity Jane.

Calamity can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, she travels to Chicago on the Deadwood Stage to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams. But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long standing enemy Wild Bill Hickock to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love.

With an Oscar nominated score that includes The Black Hills of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), Just Blew in from the Windy City and the Award winning song Secret Love.


Please see below the call times for auditions on Sunday 7th July 2019 to be held at Shurdington School, Badgeworth Lane, Shurdington, Cheltenham, GL51 4UQ.
