Running time: 2:45

The Full Monty

Presented by Cheltenham Operatic & Dramatic Society
Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
Book by Terence McNally
Based on the motion picture released by Fox Searchlight Pictures
Written by Simon Beaufoy
Produced by Uberto Pasolini and directed by Peter Cattaneo

CODS is delighted to present this compelling tale of six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers who, low on cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives' enthusiasm for a touring company of The Chippendales.  However, their show will be better than the Chippendales because they intend to go '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. The men strip themselves bare to reveal the real men underneath the veneer that the world sees.

The Full Monty musical, adapted from the 1997 BAFTA Award winning film, retains the grittiness of the original Sheffield based story.  Despite being a comedy, the show touches on subjects such as unemployment, fathers' rights, depression, homosexuality and obesity.  Peppered with a spicy, toe-tapping musical score, this is the fun summer show not to be missed.

On the big night, only one question remains - will they or won't they?

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York
