Workington Calendar Girls strip off to take to the stage

Meet Workington’s very own Calendar Girls, stripped and ready for theatrical action.

BARING NEARLY ALL: Workington Playgoers’ six Calendar Girls, clockwise, from front right: Charlie Douglas-Brown (Cora), Sarah Delorme (Annie), Grace Walker (Chris), Fran Smith (Ruth), Pam Armstrong (Jessie) and Nicola Woodier (Celia)

The six will shed their clothes in Workington Playgoers’ adaptation of Calendar Girls at the town’s Theatre Royal from Tuesday, December 4, to Sunday, December 9, to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Pam Armstrong, Grace Walker, Charlie Douglas-Brown, Sarah Delorme, Nicola Woodier and Fran Smith will take on the roles made famous by Helen Mirren, Julie Walters and others in the film of the same name.

The play is based on the real-life story of 11 women of Rylstone Women’s Institute, North Yorkshire, who stripped off for a calendar to raise money for the leukaemia charity.

Workington Playgoers will make a donation from proceeds of the production.

Performances begin at 7.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and there will be a matinee on the Sunday at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £8, and £7 for concessions, from the box office on 01900 602122.
