The date may have changed but the show will go on. Curtain-up is one week closer and the cast of ‘Calendar Girls’ are rehearsing every spare minute they have to ensure a fantastic performance.

The date may have changed but the show will go on. Curtain-up is one week closer and the cast of ‘Calendar Girls’ are rehearsing every spare minute they have to ensure a fantastic performance.

Tullamore Amateur Dramatic Society (TADS) are preparing to stage Tim Firth’s ‘Calendar Girls’, in the GAA Centre, Arden Road on the now changed dates of the 4th to the 9th of February inclusive.

TADS deeply regret any inconvenience caused by the change in dates, which was due to circumstances beyond their control. Tickets are priced at €12 including a complimentary glass of wine (€10 euro for OAPs or students). Beautiful souvenir Calendar/Programmes will be on sale at the venue.

A generous cut of the proceeds from the production and the calendars, will go to Dochas Offaly Cancer Support Group (www.dochasoffaly.ie), a very worthy cause which TADS are delighted to support.

Performance space has always been limited in Tullamore due to the lack of an Arts Centre, and we at TADS are very much indebted to Tullamore GAA Centre for facilitating this production. They have made every effort to accommodate us for rehearsals and have also allowed us to build our set on the stage some weeks in advance.

There are a number of restaurants around the town who will be running pre-theatre specials during the week of the play.

Captain House Restaurant, Main Street are offering a FREE glass of wine or drink with every early bird menu. Just quote the password ‘Calendar Girls’ when you are ordering. To book your table phone: (057) 9320888

BK2 in William Street are offering a daily Calendar Girls Special. Just quote the password ‘Calendar Girls’ when you are ordering. To book your table at BK2 phone (057) 932 5788.

The Coffee Club in Harbour Street are also offering a daily ‘Calendar Girls’ special- soup, a club sandwich and tea or coffee for just €9.95.

So, do come along to Calendar Girls. Have a glass of wine, enjoy the play, look at the lovely calendars, support the Arts in Tullamore, and let’s try to do our part to defeat, as it says in the play, ‘This cheating, sly, conniving, silent disease…’
