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!

All the cast were brilliant, but especially John Eddie, his performance was wonderful, had me in tears, at times. He deserves special recognition for an outstanding performance.
