Calendar Girls

The other day I was talking about my husband turning 40 this past weekend. For his birthday I took him to see the play "Calendar Girls" performed at the Arts Club's theatre Company's Stanley Industrial Theatre on Granville in Vancouver.

Many of you may remember Helen Mirren's phenomenal performance in the film that came out back in 2004. It is the true story of a small group of women from the Women's Institute who were raising funds for their local church by posing tastefully and subjectively nude for a calendar. 

This whimsical British comedy was just as good as the film and had the audience howling with laughter. Their performance was very impressive as these brave actresses of all ages bared it all.

There is still time if you haven't yet seen the production as they are here until February 26th, for more information on this play and others visit the following site:

We have always enjoyed going to see theatre productions and only just discovered the Art's Club theatre, I guarantee we will be back again.
