Calamity Jane

Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th October 2015

Hertford Theatre, Hertford


Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, she travels to Chicago on the Deadwood Stage to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams. 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 will be hitting the stage at Hertford Theatre in October. This show has many great songs, 'Windy City', 'Secret Love', 'The Deadwood Stage', 'I Can Do Without You' and the famous ensemble number 'Blackhills Of Dakota', to name but a few.
