Old Academy Players to stage ‘Calendar Girls’
EAST FALLS >> East Falls’ Old Academy Players will celebrate its 96th season and the new year by presenting “Calendar Girls” by Tim Firth.
Directed by Loretta Lucy Miller, “Calendar Girls” is a stage play based on a true story of 11 Yorkshire women who posed nude to produce a calendar to raise money for leukemia research under the auspices of the Women’s Institutes. In 2003, it became a blockbuster movie starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters.
The Old Academy Players plan to sell their own nude calendar as a fundraiser.
Show dates are Fridays, Jan. 11, 18 and 25, at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Jan. 12, 19 and 26, at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, Jan. 20 and 27, at 2 p.m.
