‘Calendar Girls‘ raise $68,000
-------------------------------------
Seven years after a group of members first watched the Australian production of Calendar Girls in Sydney the mcCr (Monaro Committee for Cancer Research) are pleased to announce that $68,000 was raised at their recent production and fundraiser.
“The story behind the play was very close to our hearts”, said President Sandy Schofield. Fabulous and funny, Calendar Girls is a true story about two close friends, one of whom lost her husband to leukemia. The friends are members of a strait-laced Women’s Institute (WI) and they convince fellow members of the need to raise sufficient funds to purchase a new sofa in his memory, for the family room at the hospital. WI produce an annual calendar which, this year, was to feature local churches but the two women believe they have more chance of raising the funds needed if they can persuade the WI members to pose nude for the calendar. Members are firstly horrified but eventually agree to support the cause and it is a huge success.
The cast included members of the mcCr family along with talented performers from Cooma Little Theatre.
“It pushed us out of our comfort zone” said Sandy.
“As many of us had never performed in a theatre production before, but under the guidance of director Jayne Keegan and stage manager Nell Pernitsch and a lot of determination and hard work from everyone, we made it happen.”

The show is Calendar girls the play written by Tim Firth. The cast features lots of local identities, such as Jill Murdoch, Brian Coyte and Tony Nassar who have never been on stage mixed with some local theatre folk...Caroline fox, Cathy Burge and Sue McPhie. And of course MCCR committee members caroline Hewitt and Sandy Schofield. Throw in an ex footballer, Craig Schofield and assorted others and you have a lively crew. A great production and a warm and funny story!!
