We are extremely excited to announce that we have returned with a bang after a two-year pause! Our first show of 2022, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” sold out every performance of the entire run. Thank you all for your support – it looked like you were as happy that we were back as we were to be back. Now, on with the show – next up is “Calendar Girls.”
We have strict COVID protocols in place for audience and house staff.
Please review our current protocols here before coming to the theater. We would hate for these protocols to surprise you at the theater entrance on the day of the performance.
If you have any questions, please contact us by email or phone. We hope to see you at the theater soon!

When Annie’s husband John dies of cancer, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. With help from other women in their British women’s club, (who are also of a more advanced age) they decide to pose nude and publish a calendar with the photos in order to raise funds. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The play is based on a true story and is both poignant and filled with sweet, good-natured British comedy that is sure to make you roar with laughter!
The show features some of MCT’s favorite performers, including Ward Willats, Scott Kravitz, Shireen Doyle, Kate Cunningham, Nicolett Nasr, Rita Wadsworth, Robin Lasser, Karen Solomon, and Ann McCormick, and newcomers to the MCT stage like Susan Willats and Sally Bookman.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm from May 20 through June 12. Ben Lomond’s historic Park Hall, 9400 Mill Street is the venue. Tickets are $25 general and $20 for students and seniors.
There will be a champagne reception after the performance on opening night, May 20, and a talkback with the director and cast after the performance on Sunday, May 29.
Reservations for Season Subscribers can be made starting April 15. The general public can start buying tickets on May 3. Tickets can be purchased at calendargirls.brownpapertickets.com.
