Main Stage Series


 CALENDAR GIRLS

By Tim Firth

 

When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Womens' Institute (WI) members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.

Between the Waters Bike Tour  -  Onancock
(10/25/2014)

Between the Waters Bike Tour
Onancock, VA
Saturday, October 25, 2014

There is no better way to explore the Eastern Shore of Virginia than by bike.  The Between the Waters Bike Tour is sponsored by Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore (CBES) and  winds through interesting historic towns and communities and along back roads to scenic rest stops that overlook the Atlantic seaside and the Chesapeake Bay.  The Bike Tour is scheduled for the 4th Saturday in October with start/finish locations rotating between Wachapreague, Nassawadox, Onancock and Cape Charles.

This one day bike tour is an ecotourism event for CBES, a non-profit organization serving Northampton and Accomack counties, and the Between the Waters Bike Tour is one of the major fundraisers of the year for this group. With very little vehicle traffic, the ride is sure to be relaxed and peaceful as well as easygoing because of the flat terrain. Snack and drink stops are provided and a complimentary picnic lunch is served.

Riders have a choice of either 20, 40, 60 or 100-mile routes with staggered start times.

Downloadable PDF Registration Form

Riders come from the Tidewater region as well as from North Carolina, Maryland and the D.C. area.  Word has gotten out that it’s a good ride through some beautiful countryside.  There is more to the Eastern Shore than just Route 13.

Come for the day or enjoy the Shore for the weekend.  CBES offers a Friday afternoon guided fun ride that usually has a 10 and 20 mile route for riders to enjoy.  There are many lodging choices available from the quaint B&Bs in several of our towns, warm and friendly hotels and motels as well as rental houses.
