Inspired by the story of the Calendar Girls, THE GIRLS shows life in their Yorkshire village, how it happened, the effect on husbands, sons and daughters and how a group of ordinary ladies achieved something extraordinary. 

The multi-award winning cast is led by Debbie Chazen, Sara Kestelman, Claire Machin, Claire Moore, Vivien Parry, Joanna Riding and Harriet Thorpe with Stephen Boswell, Joe Caffrey, Jeremy Clyde, John Davitt, Susan Fay, James Gaddas, Steve Giles, Shirley Jameson, Judith Street, Karen West, Allison Harding, David Breeds, Sarah Day and introducing Josh Benson, Ben Hunter and Chloe May Jackson.

Gary Barlow and Tim Firth both grew up in the same village and have been friends for twenty five years. Gary has written 14 number one singles, is 6 times winner of the Ivor Novello Award and has sold over 50 million records worldwide.

Tim has won the Olivier Award and the UK Theatre Award for Best Musical and Best Play and the Comedy Film Award for Calendar Girls.
