OUR CALENDAR GIRLS
Airdrie & District Hospice Society
OCTOBER 26 & OCTOBER 27, 2017 TIME: 7:00PM
BERT CHURCH THEATRE, AIRDRIE
A partnership with Ladies Out Loud & Nose Creek Players
Based on the Miramax motion picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth
When Annie's husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. 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 calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
Note: Show contains concealed nudity.
The Airdrie and District Hospice Society is a not for profit society which is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our Vision: No one dies alone. Our Mission: We seek to enhance community capacity by promoting physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The need for Palliative Care in Airdrie & District developed through the collective desire of community citizens to improve support for families and individuals at the end of life. A small group of dedicated individuals came together to support this concept and formed the Airdrie & District Hospice Society in February of 2011.
"One person caring about another represents life's greatest value." ~ Jim Rohn

For as long as I can remember I have always had a zest for creativity and originality. High school art classes were always a struggle because of restrictions or guidelines that I wouldn’t always meet. I would sacrifice an “A” if it meant that I really loved what I was creating.
As an adult, I have experienced the freedom of creating artwork the way I imagine it. Photography has always been a passion of mine and more recently I have discovered a LOVE for painting.
When it comes to creativity I find I do best when there is no plan. Some of my favourite photos were created because of opportunity, not staging. As for painting, I’ve learned to never force an idea and I let the paint guide me instead. It’s somewhat of a spiritual journey I’d say, and I enjoy every moment of it. ~ Nicole Browne~
