Three Keighley women are among the stars of a production of Calendar Girls in Yeadon next week.
Laura Judge, Marie Collins and Deanna Alexandra Robinson recently met the cast of the professional production of the hit comedy.
The trio will play some of the Women's Institute members from Yorkshire Dales village who stripped for a fundraising calendar.
BrassNeck Theatre is among several amateur companies across the UK who won the rights to perform the play over the next 12 months.
Their production from Tuesday to Saturday (Sept 18-22) follows the amateur premiere in Grassington last month and Keighley Playhouse's staging of the play this month.
Laura, Marie and Deanna will take to the stage at Yeadon Town Hall with Rachel Sowerby, Lisa Simpson and Ann Growler.
Their disrobing for the calendar shoot is an about turn for some of the actresses following their appearance in BrassNeck's recent production of the musical The Full Monty.
Laura said: "Lisa, Rachel and I played the stripper's wives and kept our clothes in while the men had to strip fully off... but now the tables have turned and it's us getting our kit off.
"We have a whole new respect for the men!"
Laura, who runs Keighley theatre-in-education company Double Take, is well-known to Keighley Playhouse audiences from many previous performances.
Marie teaches music in Keighley, while Deanna is making her debut with BrassNeck. Keighley Playhouse and Amateurs performer Mark Brown plays the photographer.
Laura said that when the BrassNeck girls met the professional actresses they were given hints and tips about the characters they would play.
Calendar Girls tells how, after Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room.
They pursuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an ‘alternative’ calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence.
News of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales.
The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
BrassNeck will present classic musical Fiddler on the Roof in November, followed next nearby Andrew Lloyd Edward musical Whistle Down the Wind.
