A whip-crackin' production of Calamity Jane, starring West End favourite Carrie Hope Fletcher, will play Mayflower Theatre as part of a UK tour prior to the West End. 

The revival of The Watermill Theatre's production of the Broadway and West End hit will be in Southampton in June 2025. 

Marking ten years since the show last hit the road, it reunites the previous creative team with direction by Nikolai Foster (An Officer and a Gentleman, Kinky Boots).

Carrie Hope Fletcher is a three-time WhatsOnStage Best Actress in a Musical winner.

She most recently originated the title role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella (Gillian Lynn Theatre, West End).

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

Carrie is a 2022 GRAMMY nominee for two competing albums for Best Musical Theatre Album - Cinderella (Original Concept Album) and Les Misérables: The Staged Concert (Live Album).

Carrie went out on her first solo tour last year.

Alongside theatre, Carrie has also written several best-selling novels and has a huge social media presence.

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!"

Daily Echo: Calamity Jane will come to Mayflower Theatre in 2025, starring Carrie Hope Fletcher

Based on the much-loved Doris Day movie, this foot-stomping 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.

Meet the fearless, gun slingin' Calamity Jane – biggest mouth in Dakota territory and always up for a fight.

She'll charm you hog-eyed though, 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. Her heart's a thumpin'... but who for?

Tickets for the show, which runs from June 3 to 7 next year, go on general sale on Friday (June 7) from mayflower.org.uk or 023 8071 1811.
