The McLean Community Players are presenting the area premiere of Tim Furth’s “Calendar Girls,” at McLean’s Alden Theatre. Based on a true story, it is set in a small English village where a number of middle-aged ladies belong to a club call the Women’s Institute. After the husband of one of the members dies, they decide to raise money for the hospital in his name by selling a calendar. Sounds innocent enough until we discover the calendar will have pictures of the ladies, sort of in the buff. When word gets out, they are deluged by reporters. Lots of fun with a great ensemble cast. “Calendar Girls” is directed by Bob Sams who directed MCP’s production of “The Games Afoot” last season. The show runs on weekends through Oct. 3.
