Killarney Musical Society are delighted to announce their 31st production, "Calamity Jane" which will take to the stage of the INEC, Killarney, on March 9th, 10th and 11th 2016.
Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, Calamity travels to Chicago to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams, for the Deadwood Stage. But alas, things don't go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her pride and jealously in check. It takes her long-standing enemy, Wild Bill Hickok, to make her see sense, and realise her true secret love...
Calamity Jane has an Oscar nominated score which includes 'The Black Hills of Dakota', 'The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away)', 'The Windy City' and the award-winning song 'Secret Love'.
