Auditions: "The Full Monty" at Old Library

Auditions for "The Full Monty" will be held August 4th and 5th 2019. Preregistration is strongly encouraged, but not required. See link below.

Director: John Zisa
Music Director: Kristen Hoyt
Choreographer: Amy Calzone
Stage Manager: Scott Baird
Producers: Julie Galorenzo and Jon Richardson

Synopsis:
Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, a ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. The powerhouse team of Terrence McNally (Ragtime) and David Yazbek (The Band's Visit, Tootsie) cooks up a fun show that lives up to the title!

While spying on their wives at a "Girls' Night Out," a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to "let it go."

The Full Monty is a story full of heart. Right to the end, audiences will be wondering if these lovable misfits will really pull it off. With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizzazz, this heartwarming, upbeat comedy is a must for any theatre looking for a big hit.
