When a much loved husband and member of the community sadly passes away, a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute do an extraordinary thing. Throwing away all preconceptions of what it is to be part of a WI, they decide to do a nude calendar to raise money for charity.  However none of them expect the emotional and personal challenges that lie ahead, but gradually with the making of the fabulous and hilarious calendar each lady begins to blossom and bloom.

The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play, and now this musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow.  Never has a show had the ability to make you laugh and cry at the same time, or  "craughing" as it’s now widely called, thanks to this show. 


Join Rickmansworth Players for a weekend celebrating performance at our outdoor Summer Festival 2022!

Listen and delight as our award-winning Rickmansworth Players Choir perform their summer concert, Songs of Summer. Revel in Rickmansworth Players Youth Theatre as they perform a very British musical, The Wind in the Willows, all staged in the splendid  suroundings of Scotsbridge House.  So join us for what is sure to be a perfect summer afternoon's entertainment for the whole family.


Our Society

Rickmansworth Players provide our local community  with great opportunities to perform, create and belong. Established in 1944, our performing arts organisation provides a fun and creative environment to produce high quality theatre and music for the enjoyment of our members and the local community. Get involved onstage or behind the scenes with our full scale musicals and plays, sing in our community choir, support our energetic youth group, or join our huge teams of creatives that bring it all to life.

There is an opportunity for everyone to get involved no matter what their interest, age, or skills.


We do two major musical and drama productions for the society every year. Each is performed in one of our local professional theatres and has a full production team to support it.
