Benefitting The American Cancer Society.
When Annie's husband, John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women's Institute members to pose nude with them for a calendar. The news of the women's charitable adventure spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. (PG13)
The Players Guild cast and crew of Calendar Girls will be making a calendar in the tasteful tradition of the original WI ladies. All proceeds from the calendar, along with 10% of ticket sales, will go to The American Cancer Society. We hope you will support this effort.
