The Full Monty is a musical with a book by Terrence McNally and score by David Yazbek. In this Americanized musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives' enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they'll go "the full monty" — 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.
12 Men, 8 Women, 1 Boy
Descriptions are subject to change and clarification.
All characters are normal denizens of Buffalo. Unless specifically noted, all body types are welcome! Except for 'Nathan,' you must be at least 18 years old before kick-off to audition, Nathan candidates must be at least 10. This show has adult themes and language. We will be making every effort to keep it PG-13. All ages are stage ages and pliable.
We need actors with comedy chops that can hit the depths and heights of reality. The audience must connect with these real people and fall in love with them, quirks and all.
Vocal ranges include key solo work. Depending on casting needs, some ranges may be wider or narrower to cover the full harmonies required. This music is more difficult than it first appears. 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.
We need good movers. No dance training or experience in any particular style is required, but many characters need to perform synchronized movement well while singing tight harmonies. Be prepared to dance!
There are some non-dancing and non-singing roles, but everyone will sing and dance at auditions.
