Telegraph Calamity Jane is an action packed, rip-roaring adventure, featuring many classic songs. Deadwood, Dakota territory, is a typical Wild West town where men are cowboys and women are clean living, wholesome gals. That is apart from Indian scout Calamity Jane, who is as hard riding, gun tooting and boastful as any man on the prairie.
Starring Toyah Willcox as Calamity Jane, the role which was made famous on screen by Doris Day. Directed by Ed Curtis. Adapted for stage by Charles K Freeman. Music by Sammy Fain. Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster.
