Manitoba Theatre Centre presents Calendar Girls The John Hirsch Theatre Mainstage from March 14th through April 9th. Tickets range from $35 to $70 depending on age, date and seat section.

Here is an excerpt from the MTC website:

At first glance, it looks like a classic Women’s Institute calendar, complete with jams, cakes and knitting, except for one thing – the ladies are posing nude. When Annie Clarke’s husband dies from leukemia, her friend Chris Harper comes up with the idea to raise money for a comfortable sofa for the visitor’s lounge in the hospital.

This group of extraordinary women puzzle their husbands and embarrass their children while attracting global attention. Under the harsh glare of the spotlight, the women are forced to re-examine their motives and relationships while revealing more than they ever planned. A rich and rewarding comedy based on a true story.

Check out MTC’s website for more information and to purchase tickets.
