THE FULL MONTY opens at the Cavern Theatre, Sunshine Beach on June 29th and The Events Centre, Caloundra on July 13th.
 
The Full Monty is a musical version of the hit British movie about middle-aged men forced by circumstances to put on a strip show in order to raise money.
 
This fun show is made all the more fun by the great performers that bring the characters to life.
 
The Full Monty (the Musical) is an American take on the hugely successful 1997 English movie.
 
It opened on Broadway in 2000 and was an immediate hit with critics and audiences, and went on to be nominated for nine Tony Awards.
 
In this version, presented by a very talented cast, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and self-esteem; decide to present a one-night-only strip-act after seeing their wives' frenzy for a traveling act of Chippendale professionals.
 
As they prepare for the show, the motley showbiz newbie's work through their fears, self-consciousness, homophobia and anxieties while learning to lean on each other.
 
The story is simple, predictable and shamelessly sentimental but funny and heartfelt with an honest affection for its characters.
 
The adaptation by Terrence McNally (Ragtime), manages to preserve the whimsical humour of the original while adding the broad laughs necessary to keep a Broadway show percolating along.
 
The winning words and music are from first-time Broadway composer David Yazbek, who provides a catchy (if not groundbreaking) rock/pop score.
 
The cast is excellent - all displaying good voices and the ability to present some fairly complex dance steps (Choreographer Melissa Lanham has performed miracles here) without ever letting us forget that they are supposed to be flat-footed amateurs.
 
Director Peter Blyth doesn't allow his sprightly production to drag for a minute, while Bruce Barnett's orchestra is outstanding.
