The Playhouse Theatre, Cheltenham
Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster
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.
There will be an open afternoon to sing through the wonderful music and do a bit of toe tapping learning a little of the dance routines on Saturday 15th June 2019 from 2.00pm to 5.00pm, and will be held at Shurdington Primary School. This will be followed by a BBQ at The Bell Inn on Shurdington Road.

Auditions will be held on Sunday 7th July also at Shurdington Primary School, times to be confirmed.
