GDS to Stage Revealing New Show!

Grantham Dramatic Society announces that their autumn 2012 production will be the hugely popular 'Calendar Girls'. The new play, based on the hit film starring Helen Mirren, is being released to amateurs for a limited time only from September next year, and Grantham Dramatic Society will be performing it at the Guildhall Arts Centre.

Chair of the Dramatic Society, Vicky Williamson, commented: "We've been waiting for this show to be available for amateurs for years. It's been a huge success as a touring production with some really big names starring over the last few years. As soon as the opportunity came up, we jumped at the chance." Based on a true story, the play follows a WI group's attempts to raise money for their local hospital by creating a nude calendar. "We're going to have so much fun with this," continued Ms Williamson. "Although it sounds revealing, the action is more suggestive than anything, and the story overall is heart-warming and moving."

The show will be performed at the Guildhall Arts Centre from 7th to 10th November 2012. Anyone interested in taking part in this show, or any other aspect of the Society, is invited to contact
