Seventeen ladies from Little Theatre Company have bravely bared all to create a Calendar Girls-style calendar in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research – which is working hard to find a cure for all blood cancers.
The company is staging the play Calendar Girls next March – and the ladies decided a 2013 charity calendar would be the perfect way to celebrate the spirit of the original calendar girls of the Women’s Institute. The Burton Calendar Girls pictures are all on a theatrical theme.
Tilley Bancroft of Red Door Studios – who has created animated scenery for a number of Little Theatre productions – gave her services free to shoot the pictures and design the full-colour A4 sized calendar which is now on sale priced £8. Local professional make up artist Sheelagh Powell also gave her time free of charge on the day of the photoshoot.
Details of how to buy the calendars are on the the girls’ blog - http://burtoncalendargirls.blogspot.co.uk/p/how-to-buy-calendar.html
They will definitely be on sale in the Brewhouse bar every night of the run of The Sound of Music which Little Theatre Company stages from November 12 – November 17.
