Synopsis

Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty a 10-time TONY Award-nominee is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly-anticipated closing number of any show.

While spying on their wives at a 'Girls' Night Out,' a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo see how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work, and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness, and prejudices, the men come to discover they're stronger as a group, and the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to ‘let it go.’

Audition Information

We are looking for actors with comedy chops and wide emotional range. Except for a few roles, solid vocal technique is a must. Most of the men sing a variety of styles with considerable range. The women (except for Jeanette) all sing in a moderate Mezzo/Belt range. All include challenging harmonies while moving or dancing. While you don’t need training or experience in any particular style of dance, you must be able to move well and have high-energy.
