Calendar Girls At The Little Theatre

The play Calendar Girls ran all weekend at the Gulfport Little Theatre but if you missed it, they’re doing it all again next weekend as well and it’s for a good cause. Based on a true story the play is based on the movie of the same name, which starred Helen Mirren. Not only are all of the proceeds from the show going to be given to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, but spectators can purchase sunflowers as a donation, and the cast has put together a calendar featuring characters from the play which will also be sold to raise money for the cause. Cal Walters tells News 25, “We’re working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Mississippi and Louisiana so a portion of the proceeds will go to them. Not to give the story away but it does involve cancer, so we figured it was a great partnership to work with some great people who fight that disease every day.” If you missed it this weekend, Calendar Girls will be showing at Gulfport Little Theatre again next Friday through Sunday.
