Due to circumstances beyond our control we are no longer able to show Calamity Jane. In its place we are showing the singalong version of the ever-popular Oklahoma.

If you have bought a ticket for Calamity Jane, your ticket will be valid for Oklahoma. If you would rather have a refund, please bring your ticket to The Globe where we will give you your money back.

This is a special singalong version of the classic 1953 movie in which Doris Day offers her irrepressible portrayal of the famous frontier wildcat, Calamity Jane.

Its memorable songs include Just Blew in From the Windy City, Black Hills of Dakota and of course the Academy Award-winning Secret Love.

In the lonely Deadwood, Dakota, sharpshooter Calamity Jane falls for cavalry Lt. Danny Gilmartin when she is forced to rescue him from the Indians. Recognising that the women-starved townsmen long for a ‘real’ woman, Calamity journeys to Chicago to bring back famous singer Adelaid Adams, but mistakenly brings her maid Katie instead. Heartbroken when Danny falls for Katie, Calamity all but ignores her jovial friend Wild Bill Hickok.
