YELM, WA SRO Theater presents the heartwarming and funny play, CALENDAR GIRLS by Tim Firth. Directed by Dawn Emilia Young.

CALENDAR GIRLS is a stage play by British dramatist, screenwriter, and songwriter, Tim Firth, based on a true story of eleven Yorkshire women of the Womens Institute (WI) who posed nude to produce a calendar to raise money for Leukemia Research. This story inspired by the 2003 film starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters.

When Annies husband, John, dies of Leukemia, her and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new sofa in the family room where they waited while John had his chemotherapy treatments. They persuade fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an alternative calendar in Johns memory and raise money for Leukemia research. The news of the womens charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small English village of Knapeley, where hilarity ensues.

The cast features women and men from all around our community to share the meaning of transformation and growing together. SROs production of CALENDAR GIRLS by Tim Firth will feature Rae Simpson as Chris, Kelley Birdeau as Annie, Toni Montez as Cora, Anne Schuchmann and Molly Carmody as Jessie, Rebekah Bonnett as Celia, Michelle Gipson as Ruth, Dawn Wadsworth as Marie, Valerie Cawley as Lady Cravenshire, Karie Fountain as Brenda/Elaine, Ed Thorpe as John, Joel Derefield as Rod, Matthew Tolar as Lawrence and Steve Harshfield as Liam.
