15 years ago, Summer 2003, Toyah was “going great guns” starring as the lead in Calamity Jane at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End. The musical had spent a year touring the UK playing at numerous theatres around the country, again with Toyah playing Jane, and received many positive reviews along the way. There was a lot of press, below is just a few articles from various newspapers. Click on the collage to visit Dreamscape’s mini Calamity Jane website.

Remember When… Toyah was Calamity Jane

September 22nd, 2012

Hard to believe but it’s now 10 years since Toyah was touring the UK playing the lead role in the musical Calamity Jane. Before a three-month residency at The Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End in 2003, the musical played at numerous theatres, and to thousands of people, during a nine-month UK tour that began in September 2002 at the Derngate Theatre, Northampton . It was an incredibly physical and demanding role for Toyah, making a year of shows all the more impressive. I was lucky enough to see Calamity Jane on a few occasions: In Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool and London and each time Toyah and the show were fantastic.
