Jamie Wilson, Paul Elliott and Duncan C Weldon presentation of the Watermill Theatre production of Calamity Jane.
UK Tour September 2014-August 2015
Following numerous highly acclaimed productions that include Sweeney Todd and Sunset Boulevard, The Watermill Theatre returns with a new production of the classic musical Calamity Jane starring Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, Spamalot and One Man Two Guvnors) alongside Tom Lister (The Water Babies, Emmerdale) and a cast of multi-talented actor/musicians, this brand new production gets to the heart and soul of the musical.
Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, she travels to Chicago to recruit a star, Adelaid Adams, for the Deadwood Stage. But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long standing enemy Wild Bill Hickok to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love…
With an Oscar nominated score that includes The Black Hills Of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), Just Blew In From The Windy City and the Award winning song Secret Love, don’t miss this new production!
‘A barn-storming success. Such rip-roaring fun that it will have you flinging your ten-gallon hat in the air’
