Yeeey Haaah! A brand new costume set from the Thespis studios for the 2022 season 

Period costume hire

Calamity Jane Costumes


“Yeeey-haah!... Calamity Jane is full of fun, fabulous music and pistol-packing action!... a tight, funny, and witty script and the songbook is to die for... it is a classic musical that will appeal to young and old, and the songs are some of the best that you will hear in any stage musical.”


Thespis have done it again with stunning reproduction of the period costumes from cowboy to can-can outfits.

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-theatre, Calam goes to Chicago to import to Deadwood the glamorous actress, Adelaid Adams, but returns by mistake with her maid, Katie Brown instead. Back in Deadwood, Katie’s inability to perform is overcome as she wins the heart of the young Lieutenant Danny Gilmartin, and when Calam sheds her tomboy persona at a ball at the local Fort and becomes a true woman, she realizes that she loves Wild Bill Hickok.




Make CALAMITY JANE one of the most rewarding school and community group productions.


We can also supply the pistols with holsters and rifles.
