Carrie Hope Fletcher is a three-time WhatsOnStage Best Actress in a Musical winner and most recently originated the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella.

Her previous credits include Veronica in Heathers, Wednesday in The Addams Family and Eponine in Les Misérables

She said: “Calamity Jane is one of those roles that doesn’t come around all too often. She’s action, romance and comedy all packed into one character, and I can’t wait to take on the challenge of filling her shoes.”

The show opens at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on Tuesday 14th January 2025, and currently tours until August 2025. Details of its West End run will be announced soon.

About the show

Based on the much-loved Doris Day movie, this new production features all the sure-fire classic songs including The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), The Black Hills of Dakota, Just Blew in from the Windy City, and the Oscar-winning Secret Love.

Calamity Jane has the biggest mouth in Dakota territory and is always up for a fight. She’ll charm you, especially when trying to win the heart of the dashing Lieutenant Gilmartin, or shooting insults at the notorious Wild Bill Hickok.

But when the men of Deadwood fall hard for Chicago stage star Adelaid Adams, Calamity struggles to keep her jealousy holstered.

Producer Jamie Wilson said “With this new version of Calamity Jane first opening at The Watermill Theatre in 2014, I am delighted to be collaborating with them again to finally bring this wonderful production back to theatres all over the country after a 10-year absence.  

“We have been waiting for the right moment and artist to step into Calamity’s boots and bring this hilarious and joyful musical back to the nation, and we are thrilled that Carrie Hope Fletcher will be leading the company.

“Carrie is one of the UK’s most talented artists whose broad fan base will introduce this much beloved musical to audiences across the country.”
