The following letter was received today. Email Leslie if you are interested.
Dear all at the WI
I am emailing on behalf of David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers who are the theatrical producers of The Girls musical based on the Calendar Girls. You may remember me from last year when we recruited a choir of WI ladies to sing with Gary Barlow and the cast of The Girls musical on the Royal Variety show.
I’m getting in touch again with another opportunity which I hope you’ll think exciting!
We are touring the show to theatres around the country from August next year and we’re currently designing the poster for our marketing campaign. The idea of the poster is ladies posing ‘nude’ in a field, cleverly painted so they disappear into the backdrop.
So I’m emailing to see if any of the ladies at your WI would be interested in being a model for our shoot. We are looking for 6 women of a variety of ages and body shapes for this. Although it will appear as if each lady is nude, the models will be able to wear some discreet underwear if they want to which we can paint over. The idea of the shoot (and the Calendar Girls story) is a celebration of women, being brave, baring all and having fun.
If you have ladies who would be interested in this, I need the following information:
