A pair of hit West End musicals are set to delight audiences at Norwich Theatre Royal in April 2024.

First up is Calendar Girls from April 2 to 6 and it is based on the 2003 film of the same name, which in turn is based on a true story. 

Following the death of a much-loved husband, a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women's Institute create a nude calendar to raise money for charity.
