Visit to see "Calendar Girls - The Musical" - Thursday 28 March 2019
I doubt Woking Theatre had ever seen the like before when a group from Cobham Cedar Club along with hundreds of other ladies (plus a few plucky men) recently attended a performance of "Calendar Girls - the Musical". I expect most had seen either the film or play but it was good to experience a different "take" on the amazing, heart-warming story of how a small village community in Yorkshire rallied together to raise funds for the Leukaemia Research Fund and became a worldwide sensation, to date raising £5 million from the simple beginnings of a risque calendar.
The first act was a little slow but then the humour started to shine through with great songs like "I've had a little work done" from the lady with the "boob job" and the single mum, daughter of the vicar, belting out the rebellious altar carol, "Who wants a silent night" whilst standing on the piano stool.
It was amusing to watch how the various personalities reacted to the idea of a nude calendar and eventually were persuaded to participate. Whilst i am not sure this idea will catch on in Cobham, all W.I. ladies will appreciate the spirit of. fun and friendship, even if it gently mocked our worthy association.
