Calendar Girls in the flesh… in Toronto!

Things to Do, What's New — By jbaynes on February 24, 2011 at 3:04 am

Who doesn’t like calendar girls? A new show is coming to the Royal Alexandra Theatre this spring. It’s the North American premiere of London’s comedy sensation, in an all-Canadian production: Calendar Girls.

So what’s the gist? Miss January through to Miss December are just regular gals in a women’s club who decide to drop it all for charity. As far as the cast goes, Little Mosque on the Prairie’s Sheila McCarthy joins the cast as Ruth.

Are we ready to see some middle-aged skin? Perhaps it’s time to see someone other than a supermodel bare all to provoke some thought. Or at least laughter.

Could this be the female answer to The Full Monty? Looking forward to finding out this Spring…
