When Annie’s husband dies of leukemia, she and her friends from a small town Women’s Institute set out to raise funds for a local charity – by posing for a calendar completely in the buff. When the news of the women’s hilarious venture spreads like wildfire, the women find themselves exposed in ways they hadn’t anticipated, and they reach for a new level of understanding and friendship.
“Calendar Girls” is based on a true story of eleven Women’s Institute members who posed nude for a calendar in the 1990s to raise money for a settee at the local hospital’s waiting room. This novel idea continues to inspire groups world-wide and has raised millions of dollars for cancer research.
Please note that this well known play will feature strategically concealed nudity.
Tickets are $15 per adult and $10 per youth.

WE CHANGED OUR SPRING PLAY… It doesn’t happen often but this time we seem to have worn out our supply of middle age male actors. After many auditions we concluded that we needed to go for a smaller cast, so DCP’s spring play 2016 will be Norm Foster’s ‘My Darling Judith’ instead of the advertised Michael Grant’s ‘Shorthanded’. Same dates, same place, same price. The cast is in rehearsal in our beloved but crowded rehearsal hall.
This play is the comic story of a business men wanting to have an affair. He tries to distract his wife by tasking one of his employees with the mission of seducing her. Will it work? Come and see.
The play will be performed at the Old Town Hall on April 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th, 16th and 17th, 2016.
From left to right: Rachelle Eves, Lynn Jolicoeur, Tony Glen and Jim Perkins.
AUDITIONS for Shorthanded, by Michael Grant . Saturday and Sunday Jan 2, 3/ 2016 10:00 – noon at the Winchester Old Town Hall.
We need 8 males who appear to be between 40 and 60 years old.
It’s a comedy about 8 old time hockey players getting ready for their last chance at a championship. The play is less about hockey than it is about the relationships between men who have played hockey together since they were pee-wees. It is about health, marital issues and interpersonal relationships.
If you intend to audition, please reply to billandsuesteele (at)gmail(dot)com or on the Facebook audition post on either the Dundas County Players group or page. The play runs April 8th to 17th, 2016.
