    You know Calamity Jane, the old 1950s musical tale of the Wild West and the search for love? Doris Day learning to be ladylike… Well, it’s given a hell of a shake-up in this pared-back, madcap, hilarious rendition. Jane is all swagger – a rough rider, full of defiance – but, when it comes to love, she’s calamity in more ways than one.

    This was a smash hit at the Hayes Theatre last year. There’s a bar on stage, a single piano, and Virginia Gay giving an un-be-liev-able performance. We already know this one is brilliant. Don’t miss it.

    Presented in association with One Eyed Man Productions with Neglected Musicals and Hayes Theatre Co

    This production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International Australasia Pty Ltd on behalf of MTI Europe.
