Event details

Las chicas del calendario (Calendar Girls)
3 April  -28 April  

Based on the quintessentially British 2003 hit film, this production features a cast of acclaimed Spanish film, TV, and theatre actresses. Las chicas del calendario tells the true story of the members of a Yorkshire branch of the Women’s Institute who decide to pose naked for a calendar in order to raise money for a local cancer ward after one member’s husband is diagnosed with leukaemia. The idea, at first discussed in jest, comes to fruition with the help of a local amateur photographer, and soon the women find themselves at the centre of a media storm. The production stars Asunción Balaguer, Beatriz Carvajal and Berta Ojea, whose combined résumés includes such stage hits as Follies and La venganza de Don Mendo, and the internationally acclaimed film The Women on the Sixth Floor. With a story that is equally funny and touching, this will surely be an enjoyable experience, even if your Spanish is less than perfect.
