Served up alongside ecstatic applause up and down the country, the musical tells the true story of Yorkshire’s own Calendar Girls a group of ordinary ladies who achieved something extraordinary.
“It is about friendship and community and I think we all relate to that. Celia, my character, has been off as an air hostess and has always been looking for something more.
