Full Monty ‘better than the Chippendales’

/ / News, Uncategorized

One of the raunchiest musicals around is coming to a theatre later this month.

The Full Monty, an Americanised musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, tells the story of six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers who are low on both cash and prospects.

They decide to present a strip act at a local club after witnessing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales.

One of the group, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they will do “the full monty” and strip all the way.

As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.

Directed by George Riddell, a veteran of acting and directing alike, the show, which will be performed at the Court Theatre in Tring, brings some familiar faces back to the stage, as well as some news ones.

In addition, members of the Tring community choir, the Local Vocals, have roles in the main cast and ensemble.

Backed by a strong production team, including Donna Wright as producer and Emma Brown as musical director, this promises to be a show to delight audiences.

* The show takes place from October 15 until October 19 at 8pm, with tickets calling £6 to £15, which are available from the box office on 07543 560478, or by visiting www.courttheatre.co.uk.
