Calendar Girls at Manchester Palace Theatre

by Manchester Entertainment

Winkball citizen video reporters were at The Palace Theatre in Manchester on Monday 21st February for the opening night of Calendar Girls. With a new all-star ensemble cast featuring the likes of Lynda Bellingham, Jennifer Ellison and Lisa Riley, the stage adaptation of the hit film promises laughter and inspiration. Based on a true story surrounding a Yorkshire Women's Institute, the audience follow their controversial quest to release a nude calendar in order to raise money for charity. The stage version first began in 2008, and its latest line-up looks to further strengthen the Calendar Girls story. Winkball reporters were present to speak to theatre-goers and some of the performers before and after the show, gathering expectations and reviews. The opening night went down a storm! Manchester performances run until Saturday 26th February, before the cast continue the tour via Southend-On-Sea, Leeds, Sunderland, Milton Keynes and Birmingham. Were you at the show tonight?
