Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Dead- wood. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star, Adelaide Adams, from Chicago.
But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in the town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long standing enemy Wild Bill Hickhok to make her see sense, and realise her secret love.
A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including ‘Secret Love’, ‘Black Hills of Dakota’, ‘Deadwood Stage’ and ‘Windy City’.
