Staff And Patients Entertained as Calamity Jane Cast Perform in DGRI

A taste of the west came to Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary on Sunday – thanks to members of Dumfries Musical Theatre Company.

The cast of upcoming production Calamity Jane filled the hospital’s massive atrium with a range of songs from the classic musical, including ‘The Deadwood Stage’, ‘Windy City’ and ‘The Black Hills of Dakota’.

And staff and patients stopped to enjoy the entertaining advance taste of the upcoming performance.

Calamity Jane is being directed by Stewart Cameron.

The hit stage musical was adapted from the 1953 Warner Bros musical film starring Doris Day, and casts Laura Whitelaw as the frontierswoman whose complicated relationship with Wild Bill Hickok eventually turns into affection.

Christopher Watt will accompany the performers by playing the piano which is permanently situated in the hospital atrium.

Calamity Jane opens at The Bridgend Theatre in Dumfries on April 28, running every night for a week with a matinee on Sunday April 29.
