THE first production for Canberra Repertory Society's 2013 season is Tim Firth's Calendar Girls.

The play is directed by Catherine Hill and based on the Miramax motion picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth.

Based on a true story, Calendar Girls is the story of how two enterprising women persuade their friends from the local chapter of the Women's Institute to take part in a fundraising calendar with a very saucy difference.

When everything is revealed, can their friendship survive the pressures of sudden fame?

The cast of this production, with the support of Rep and Stroudgate publishers are producing a commemorative 2013 calendar. All proceeds will be shared between the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia and the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research (MCCR).

The production will run until March 2 at Theatre 3, 3 Repertory Lane, Acton.
