Calamity Jane has always held a special place in the hearts and minds of the LGBT community, with its playful riff on gender roles and its infectious toe-tapping musical numbers. And then, of course, there’s the Oscar-winning ‘Secret Love’. It’s quite possibly the original queer anthem – one cherished by us all for its redemptive refrain of shouting about our love from the highest hill. In the Festival’s 30th year, there seems no better time to celebrate everyone’s favourite cowboy/girl with this dazzling new digital restoration, presented in glorious Technicolor on the biggest screen in Britain. So dust off your Stetson and polish those boots – dressing up is absolutely encouraged. And remember to bring your singing voice with you, because the Deadwood Stage is pulling into town and you need to be ready to greet it! Whipcrackaway!
