Starlight Dinner Theatre opens the 14th season with the smash-hit and timeless comedy “Calendar Girls”. Based on a true story, when middle-age Annie (Laura Stebbins) loses her husband John (Bill Henson) from leukemia, she and best friend Chris (Tanya Burnham) resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Yorkshire Women’s Institute members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on their small village. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
Director Kristine Thatcher has put together a cast of talented stage performers that includes: Candace Myers, Gloria Vivalda, Charlotte Ruppert, Susan DeRosa, Bruce Bennett, Jacob Meier, Cele Friestater, Kellie Stonebrook, Greg Pratt and Anita Calcagno.
