Based on the 1953 film of the same name the premiere run of Calamity Jane opened in Fort Worth, Texas on 27 May, 1961. This musical Western is adapted from the celebrated film. ‘Calam’ is 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 from Chicago.
