The American musical version of the hit film The Full Monty comes to town for the very first time.

When a troupe of male strippers comes to town and drives women wild, six unemployed steel workers hit on the idea of mounting their own strip show to raise some much-needed cash.

But when they make a rash promise to do ‘the full monty’ - strip all the way - the guys must face their fears and find strength in their friendship.  As the big night looms, will they dare to bare?

The Full Monty is a crowd-pleasing show with fantastic original songs.  Early booking is advised!

Fantastic show. Everyone was brilliant. Just as good as a West End show.

The best yet - I forgot I was in Basingstoke and not the West End!
