Calamity Jane Blows Into Manchester's Palace Theatre


JODIE PRENGER stars as the whip-cracking, sharp-shooting Calamity Jane in a brand new production of the classic musical coming to the Palace Theatre Manchester from the 24 March until 28 March.

From the Deadwood stage to the stage of the Palace Theatre, Calamity Jane is a fantastic night out

Following a sell-out run at The Watermill Theatre in Newbury, Calamity Jane stars Jodie Prenger in the title role and Tom Lister as Wild Bill Hickok.

Prenger is probably best known for winning the role of Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh’s West End production of Oliver!  through the BBC television series I’d Do Anything. During her run in the show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane she received both critical and public acclaim for her portrayal of the role.

Calamity Jane is an unforgettable experience and this brand new production really gets to the heart and soul of the musical.

Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, she travels to Chicago to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams, for the Deadwood Stage. 

But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long-standing enemy Wild Bill Hickok to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love…

Calamity Jane has an Oscar nominated score that includes The Black Hills of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), Just Blew in from the Windy City and the award-winning song Secret Love.

From the Deadwood stage to the stage of the Palace Theatre, Calamity Jane is a fantastic night out. It's only in Manchester for a limited run so get your tickets now.
