After five months in the West End and three Olivier Award nominations, The Girls will be taking it all off for one last time at the Phoenix Theatre in July, before launching on a 42-venue UK tour.
Following its London closure on 15th July the show will embark on a two-year national tour, beginning at Leeds Grand Theatre on 15th August.
Based on the film and play Calendar Girls, The Girls is written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth, and directed by Firth. It opened in London in February, following tryouts in Leeds and Manchester. The production will play its final performance at the Phoenix on 15th July. It will then tour to 42 venues across the UK.
Producers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers said they were “proud and thrilled” with the show, and wanted to “take it to everyone who wants to see it in the country, and at prices they can afford”.
Further details of the tour are yet to be announced.
The Girls is produced by Pugh and Rogers, with the Shubert Organisation.
