It’s Not Naked- It’s Nude!
Calendar Girls is not for kids. I’m just going to start with that. And not even teens. They simply wouldn’t appreciate the story like adults do.
Because Calendar Girls is about realizing that your best days weren’t in your youth – your best days come as you get older.
As John, Annie’s husband points out, “the last phase is always the most glorious.”
But also, this isn’t for kids because there’s nudity. Not THAT kind of nudity, Grand Rapids! But there’s just enough that sitting through it with your teen may feel a little awkward. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
This is the kind of show you see with your girl friends.
The 2017-2018 Season Opened With a Great Show
In honor of the evening, I donned pearls (we were going to see proper ladies who make plum pudding and have competitions over the best flower beds, afterall), grabbed my Cath Kidston purse, and headed out with my favorite guy.
We joined a full audience for opening night for the Civic’s 92nd season. We all could feel the energy from the stage and responded with lots of big laughs, and even a few sniffles at times.
Calendar Girls was really well done, but I kept wondering, “how are they going to present the nudity?”
See, Calendar Girls is about middle-aged women baring it all for charity.
The photoshoot had everyone roaring with laughter, again and again. There were severals poses to capture, and every time it was great fun.
But the most hysterical part for me was when Jessie the retired teacher took her turn. You’ll have to check it out for yourself it you want to hear what she said. I’m still laughing about it.
