Musicals Tonight! presents this 1962 musical based on the 1953 Doris Day film celebrating the life of a frontierswoman and professional scout who was also a pal of Wild Bill Hickok.
In the wild-west outpost of Deadwood City, 1876, we find the sharpshooting tomboy, Calamity Jane surrounded by cowboys, townsfolk, and the famous Wild Bill Hickok. After a mix-up in the talent pool at Deadwood’s saloon-theater, Calam goes to Chicago to import to Deadwood the glamorous actress, Adelaid Adams, but returns by mistake with her maid, Katie Brown instead. Musicals Tonight's productions are all fully staged, choreographed, and costumed. There is live musical accompaniment and no amplification.
