My favourite production at CFT has to be Calendar Girls- funny, moving and a fantastic set.

1. This was my first ever shift at CFT in the summer of 1992.
I worked front of house and was blown away by the production.
It stared Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Richard Briers, Emma Thompson, Iain Glen to name but a few. My husband said I would not like Shakespeare but it was truly amazing. I am fortunate to still be working front of house but that particular performance still remains at the forefront of many amazing memories from working for CFT.

2. Visually stunning, fantastic cast and superb production.
From: Maureen Haynes, who also says ‘Barchester Chronicles (community cast) of which I was a part – unforgettable’.
3. Gala Performance – It had Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Iain Glen and the late Richard Briers all giving brilliant performances in front of the Prince of Wales to celebrate 30years of the CFT.
I could go on and on but will not bore you just to say it made me appreciate Shakespeare and the art of acting.
