Gary Barlow & Tim Firth’s long awaited new musical THE GIRLS premieres at The Lowry
Following its short preview run at Leeds, Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s long awaited new musical THE GIRLS heads to The Lowry, Salford this week for its world premiere.
Based on the award-winning film and play Calendar Girls, THE GIRLS tells the story of a brave group of women who decide to appear nude for a Women’s Institute calendar in order to raise money to buy a settee for the visitor’s room of their local hospital in memory of one of their husbands.
The brand-new musical comedy brings to life their heart-warming true story, from how it happened to its effect on their husbands and families.
The new musical written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth features a multi-award winning cast led by Debbie Chazen as Ruth, Sara Kestelman as Jessie, Claire Machin as Cora, Claire Moore as Chris, Vivien Parry as Celia, Joanna Riding as Annie and Harriet Thorpe as Marie.
THE GIRLS runs at The Lowry from Friday 8 January to Saturday 30 January. Tickets are priced from £15 to £45.
