Calamity Jane Opening Night


She just blew in from the from the windy city…Last night our audiences were transported to the Black Hills of Dakota when CALAMITY JANE opened at Riverside Theatres to thunderous applause, lots of belly-jiggling laughing and thorough enjoyment! Virginia Gay makes the character her own – don’t expect Doris Day on stage – this is so much more!

Here is what some of our audience members said:

“We are still buzzing after the show.”

“The Black Hills…was particularly beautifully rendered, with all the cast showing their virtuosity not just in acting and singing, but in taking turns on the piano and various other instruments.”

“Secret Love was sung with truth and poignancy…and a schmaltzy American musical was given so many more nuanced layers of humorous meaning. Unmissable.”

Here are some happy snaps from the Opening Night party.
