The Full Monty Auditions: Dare to Go Bare (almost)!!
Dance in your briefs!
Sing in your shorts!
See the director strip!
(….and now that we have your attention….)
Though the movie is set in England, the musical takes place in the present in Buffalo, New York. It is a story about 6 “down on their luck” unemployed men and their friends and families. One of the main characters comes up with an idea to make some quick money- to do a strip tease just like the Chippendales. But can they go one step further, all the way-“the full monty”-to attract an even bigger audience? There are a number of important and poignant themes running through the story lines- the sacrifices people make for their children, the binding ties of friendship, the risks involved in seeing a wild idea through to the bitter end.
“The Full Monty” auditions will be held at the playhouse on Tuesday and Wednesday May 23, 24. Sign in will be at 7:00pm. Please come prepared to sing 16 bars of music, preferably from the show. There will be no acapella singing. Please bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. Wear comfortable clothing as there will be a dancing as well as vocal and reading audition.
A note to the adult men only: Be prepared to strip down to your underclothes during the audition process. But fear not- there will be no full frontal nudity in this production.
Show dates are October 13—15 and October 19—22. Rehearsals will begin prior to Labor Day.
