Calamity Jane

by Frenetic Engineering

Calamity Jane wins the hearts of the audience as she hot foots it from the saloon bars of the Wild West (well, the Dog and Duck in Bristol…). She’s a rootin' tootin' cowgirl with a trusty steed Lightnin'. She just wants to lasso, throw her knives and get herself a boyfriend but it soon becomes clear how she got her name.

She’s rough, she’s tough and she ain’t no lady. She’s been practising her lasso line dancing to a soundtrack of Dolly Parton hoping to impress Wild Bill. She would love to stand by her man if only she could catch him.

Expect calamity all round in this lively street show.

‘Calamity Jane proved a hit within the St Patrick’s Festival. Annabelle Holland presented a solo performance which caught the audience’s attention from the outset, as they empathised with the character, laughed along with the gags and were rootin’ for her to find her man.’

— Verena Cornwall, St Patrick’s Festival

‘I haven’t laughed so much in ages, thank you’
