Looking for a way to beat the Winter blues? Then booking a ticket to see Fortress Theatre Company’s upcoming production may just be the answer!


After the roaring success of ‘The Naked Truth’ back in 2018, Fortress Theatre Company are back for their biggest challenge yet.


Having raised £1,500 for Cancer Research with their last production, Fortress will be taking on another fundraising adventure, ‘Calendar Girls The Musical’ – this time in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice, a charity that is very close to the company’s heart with lots of connections to its members.


Just like the popular 2003 film starring Helen Mirren, the musical version by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth is inspired by the true story of a group of ladies from a Women’s Institute, who decide to embark on a unique project to raise money and buy a settee for the relatives’ room in their local hospital in memory of a beloved husband and friend.


The project in question? A NUDE Calendar!


Through this moving, relatable and hilarious story, the ladies challenge various preconceptions, facing personal and emotional challenges which are ultimately outshone by the uplifting experience of stepping outside their comfort zones. With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and proves that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
Fortress are right in the thick of rehearsals with a cast of amazing local talent and are working hard to bring an outstanding production to Horsham. For every member of the cast and crew it is a real labour of love which they hope will bring many people together through their love of musical theatre, whilst raising lots of money for such a worthy cause!


This project would not have been possible without funding from some of the cast themselves and the support of special local sponsors. Fortress would like to thank Friesland Campina, Musical Friends, ASL and Beauty by Emma for showing such generosity and belief in this exciting venture. Thanks also goes out to HAODS and Warnham Comrades Club for hosting rehearsal space for the production.


‘Calendar Girls The Musical’ will be performed at The Capitol Theatre in Horsham from 21st-25th February 2023, with 50% of profits being donated to St Catherine’s Hospice – a local charity that helps people who are facing life-shortening conditions to live in comfort and with dignity, independence, and choice.
Tickets are on sale now priced from £20 and can be purchased via The Capitol website and box office, but be quick, they are selling like WI baked hot cakes!

Fortress is a local amateur dramatics group who aim to bring comedic stories with real heart to life. Formed solely from local talent, every show aims to benefit a charity close to the Company’s hearts.
Calendar Girls The Musical runs at The Capitol Theatre from 21st – 25th February 2023 with 50% of all profits being donated to St Catherine’s Hospice. For more info please contact fortresstheatrecompany@outlook.com or follow us on Facebook or Instagram @fortresstheatrecompany
