Civic Theatre opens their 92nd season with a blend of laughter-tears, tragedy- hope, and the power of female friendship. Calendar Girls, based on the bitter-sweet 2003 British movie, is making it's Civic stage debut September 15 - October 1.

Calendar Girls is based on a true story set in Yorkshire, England . It's the story of a
gardening club who make an annual charity calendar. After a member's husband dies from
leukemia, the club is determined to spice things up to raise more money for cancer research and so they decide to create their own pin-up calendar.

This show sends a message to all women over the age of 40: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
From the heartwarming friendships to the well placed props covering a very strong illusion of nudity . . this script is a great reminder of self and societies acceptance.

Civic Theatre selected Calendar Girls as the opening production in honor and support of September being leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness month.

A Night of Respite is September 15, thanks to a special donation, is opening
night, and will become an evening of respite for area cancer survivors and
their care-givers. Ladies Night Out is September 21 with the Woman's City Club
and Civic Theatre. Tickets for that event are $75 with a strolling dinner, a signature drink, a tour of the Club's ArtPrize entries and a ticket to the performance.
