They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their newfound fame. Based on the true story of eleven women who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history. This show contains tasteful nudity. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Harold Alfond Cancer Center. Tickets: $24 Adults, $22 Youth/Seniors Prices do not include handling fees.

State Theatre presents Kat Wright – Night 1 @ Portland House of Music and Events
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 29 @ 1:00 am
State Theatre presents Kat Wright - Night 1 @ Portland House of Music and Events | Portland | Maine | United States

Night one

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show.

Doors at 8 pm | Music starts at 9 pm.


Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.
