Calendar Girls -Cancer Centre Fundraiser
Fri, 12 May 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM MDT
Our production of the stage play version will be running May 11th-14th, 2017 at the Karen Cunningham Theatre for the Performing Arts at Medicine Hat High School. We will also be selling our own 18 month calendar featuring members of the cast, crew and community members. 100% of the proceeds from this project will be directly donated to the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre in the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. Thus, all funds raised will stay here in Medicine Hat.
Calendar Girls is the true story of a group of British women who come together to raise money to buy a sofa for their local cancer clinic’s family room. They decide to pose for a “nude” calendar, which gained international attention and ended up raising over $500,000. Hollywood got wind of the story and turned it into a very successful movie featuring Helen Mirren in 2003.
Although the "nudity" in this presentation is implied only, the concepts of this show may be difficult for young children to understand.
