Calamity Jane (A Musical Western) is a stage musical based on the historical figure of frontierswoman Calamity Jane.

The non-historical, somewhat farcical, plot involves the authentic Calamity Jane’s professional associate Wild Bill Hickok, and presents the two as having a contentious relationship that ultimately proves to be a facade for mutually amorous feelings. The Calamity Jane stage musical originated as a live adaption of Calamity Jane, the 1953 Warner Bros. movie musical with Doris Day.

Adapted by Ronald Hanmer and Phil Park from the stage play by Charles K. Freeman, after the Warner Bros. film, written by James O’Hanlon. Songs by Paul Francis Webster (lyrics) and Sammy Fain (music).

First produced in 1961, the stage musical Calamity Jane features six songs not heard in the movie. According to some sources, the songs added for the stage musical had been written for but not included in the Calamity Jane movie.
