More news, no ads


Jodie came to give the Bagnor theatre the ‘once-over’ last Monday before she comes to play Calamity Jane in The Watermill’s summer musical which opens at the theatre on July 17.

Best-known for winning the role of Nancy in Oliver! through the BBC television series I’d Do Anything – for which she received both critical and public acclaim – Jodie has starred in the National Theatre’s hit production One Man, Two Guvnors, both in the West End and on tour, and as the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot.
Jodie is also a regular presenter on BBC Radio 2. This new version of Calamity Jane will play at The Watermill until September 6, before touring nationally.
It will be directed by Nikolai Foster whose last show at The Watermill was London Assurance and who has most recently directed Beautiful Thing in the West End and on tour, and Annie at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
Catherine Jayes, the musical arranger and supervisor, worked with John Doyle on Merrily We Roll Along at The Watermill. Doyle developed the genre of actor-musician musicals at The Watermill for which it has won accolades and West End transfers over recent years.
Booking for Calamity Jane opens on Monday, February 3, at 10am, with priority booking for Friends of The Watermill opening at 10am on Monday. Visit
