Many castmembers will play more than one character, here is a full list:
-Chris, 50s-60s - Smart, funny, and lively, with a sparkle in her eye. Not afraid to cause a little mischief.
-Annie, 50s-60s - Warm. Entirely likeable and fun-loving. Gets pulled away from her sensible side by Chris, her best friend.
-Cora, 50s-60s - Educated, cynical. Dead-pan humor. She’s a single mother of an adult daughter. Needs to be able to sing well and (ideally) to play the piano.
-Marie, 50s-60s - She thinks she’s the leader of the pack. Takes everything very seriously. Efficient and uptight.
-Jessie, 60+ - Strong personality. Old hippy. Funny. A retired teacher who corrects people’s grammar.
-Celia, 45-55 - Posh. Loves tapping in to her wild side.
-Ruth, 45-55 - Mousy. The others make fun of her because she’s such a pleaser, but they like her.
-John, 50-70 - Annie’s husband. Lovely, lovable. Funny, smart. A good, good man.
-Rod, 50-70 - Chris’s husband. He gets a big kick out of her. He drinks, he says, but not enough to cause problems. Good pals with John.
-Lady Cravenshire, 60+ - Majestic. Think Maggie Smith.
-Brenda Hulse, 50+ - A woman committed to tedious subjects.
-Elaine, 20s-30s - A beautician with a healthy glow.
-Lawrence, 20s-30s - The photographer. Matter-of-fact, a little shy.
Liam, 20s-30s - Jaded from too much show business. The women make him weary.
Calendar Girls tells the true story of Annie and her best friend Chris, who persuade four friends to pose nude for a calendar to benefit their local hospital. When news of their endeavor spreads, controversy ensues. A funny, touching play about love and friendship based on the hit movie starring Helen Mirren.
