'Calamity Jane' centers around her effort to save Henry Miller's theatre saloon from ruin by bringing the much admired and beautiful singing star Adelaide Adams to perform in Deadwood's premiere entertainment venue, The Golden Garter. Calamity promises the patrons of the Garter that she will personally bring Miss Adams back from Chicago to South Dakota. In Chicago, she sees Adelaide Adam's show from the back of the theatre, but later mistakes Miss Adams' stage struck maid Katie Brown for the star. Katie, realizing the mistake, seizes the opportunity to make her dreams come true by posing as Adelaide in the rustic no-man's land territory of Deadwood...
George Becker knew what he had here: a marvelous script, a memorable score, and a talented cast. It was in homage to the Doris Day vehicle that sent her career into the stratosphere!
